Parking for students at Colchester Campus

Students not living on Colchester Campus and disabled students are able to register for vehicle parking on campus. As parking spaces are limited, students living on campus may not register their vehicle unless they can evidence a medical or caring need, applications must be made to Student Support.

Using alternative transport

On some days it can be difficult to find a parking bay, so please do consider cycling, walking or using the local bus service. You can plan your journey and check out the facilities and discounted tickets available to you.

It takes nine minutes from Wivenhoe Rail Station to campus and 19 minutes to Greenstead by bus, so if you take advantage of the Unicard bus ticket (available from the Students' Union reception) it can cost you as little as £1 per day to travel to campus.

Car sharing is environmentally friendly and saves you money on fuel and parking charges. It also reduces wear and tear on your vehicle and makes it easier for all car users to park at our University.

Parking permits and payments

You first need to register your vehicle for a parking permit. Once that's done you'll need to pay a daily parking charge

Where you can park

Students may not park in the Wivenhoe House and Constable Building car park, the Innovation Centre, the multi-storey car park, or in parking spaces under podia (without prior authorisation from the Student Support Disability Team).
