Staff Car Parking Permit Details

Travel and Transport - Car

Car parking is controlled through the use of parking permits. Only vehicles, displaying a valid parking permit (clearly displayed on front windscreen), may park in staff car parks. Any other vehicle, with the exception of a vehicle displaying an EU-recognised disabled driver's permit (parked in a disabled driver's space), is liable to be clamped

Issuing of Permits

One permit only will be issued free of charge during any validity period to any whole-time or job-sharing member of staff of UL or associated companies. Parking permits remain the property of UL, which reserves the right to withdraw, revoke or otherwise amend the permits, and the policy governing their issue, at its sole discretion.

Arrangements for the collection of permits on general release will be advertised via staff e-mail by the Buildings and Estates Department. Other than during general release, permits may be collected from AM-056 between 3pm and 4pm, Wednesday to Friday each week. Records of all parking permits are maintained by the department.

Permit Validity Period

Two-year permits (with a validity period of two years) are issued to staff of UL on production of a current UL Staff ID card. One-year permits (with a validity period of one year) are issued to teaching postgraduate and research staff on the UL payroll listing and are renewable annually as appropriate. The one-year permits will only be issued to teaching postgraduate and research staff and to short-term contract staff on production of evidence of scheduled teaching hours, a UL ID card and vehicle registration documentation naming the applicant as the owner of the vehicle. 

Similarly, subject to verification by the Buildings and Estates Department, staff of associated UL companies and of companies contracted to provide a full-time continual service direct to UL are issued one-year permits on production of an approved list by the companies Manager/Director documentation. 

Transfer of Permits

Permits can be transferred from one vehicle to another. This has the benefit of allowing permit holders to change their vehicle, carry out vehicle repairs, etc. without having to apply for a temporary or replacement permit - the permit holder simply moves the permit to the alternative vehicle and notifies the Buildings and Estates Department of the change.

Replacement Permits

Replacement permits will be made available only under exceptional circumstances, subject to the approval of the Buildings Officer and at a fee to cover administration costs.


Parking spaces, where defined, are laid out so as to provide safe entry, exit, circulation around and manoeuvring within car parks. Cars not parked in designated spaces (whether displaying a permit or not) are liable to be clamped.

Vehicles parked so as to cause an obstruction to other vehicles, to emergency access routes or to emergency exit doors or vehicles parked on footpaths are liable to be clamped and/or towed away. No parking is permitted on campus roads.
