Car Parking

There are a limited number of car parking spaces in Oadby Student Village, which require a parking permit for an annual fee ofParking £50.

Unfortunately, there are no car parking facilities for students at Nixon Court, Opal Court, Brookland Road or on the main university campus.

Application for a parking permit should be made via shop@le giving full details of the vehicle. Residents should note that more permits may be issued than the available number of spaces so a parking place is not guaranteed.
