Car Parking

Contact -
Car Parking Supervisor - Will Jacobs

Our Car Parking team work across every University of Worcester campus to maintain control of all vehicles entering the grounds. Our main aim is to ensure that all vehicles are adhering to the Vehicle Parking Regulations and making sure that emergency services are able to gain access to all buildings with ease.

We strongly recommend that you read through the Vehicle Parking Regulations to understand what is expected of anyone parking on a University of Worcester site. 

If you are not adhering to these regulations, you will receive a parking ticket that may contain a fine. 

To park on any of our University of Worcester campuses you will either require a parking permit or a pay & display ticket. Please see below for further information on this. 




Parking Permits 

Please continue to display your 21/22 permit until you are able to purchase a new 22/23 one. 

Parking Permit FAQs

Parking permits are available to staff and students. To apply for one you can complete an online application via your staff/student portal. 
If you are a Blue Badge holder you are permitted to park free of charge, but you will still need to register and display a University of Worcester parking permit. 
If you decide not to purchase a parking permit, we do have several pay and display machines available that are a mixture of cash only and contactless. You can see the pay and display prices below and further down the page you will find a map of our car park locations that highlight where the contactless payment machines are located.
