Car parking registration permits

Registering your vehicle 

Registering your vehicle entitles you to cheaper daily parking charges at our Colchester Campus car parks. If you want to park on campus but aren't registered, you will need to pay the full visitor rate.

Register your vehicle online

Please allow two working days for your permit to activate. You can then park your vehicle at the reduced rate. 

If you can't apply online, visit the Estate Management Helpdesk to complete a paper form. This will take two working days to process.

Annual registration

If you have registered in previous years, you will need to re-register each academic year.
