Cost per hour
Parking charges have been discounted from 12p to 8p for Academic Year 20/21 due to Coronavirus uncertainties and the resulting flexible work patterns.
We have introduced a new cashless payment system for those who choose to pay each time they visit, which means you can pay for your parking online and will no longer have to pay in person at the machines. This new system will improve safety and offers a simplified way to pay for your parking. The new system has a minimum stay charge of £0.32p.
The parking location number for Colchester Campus is 1597.
The car parks work on automatic number plate recognition. You don't need to display a ticket, but you can view payment history and obtain a receipt for your payment via Parksmart.
Information stations are located at the pedestrian entrance to each car park and also Essex Business School foyer and the Information Centre on Square 3. Those parking in Car Park A and Car Park B will find information in the stairwells of the multi-storey car park.
