2022/23 FARNHAM Parking Permits
The University is not obliged to provide parking facilities on campus. However, there is limited parking available under certain circumstances for staff. Student parking is available on campus for blue badge holders and under some circumstances, like medical conditions that necessitate the provision of a permit.
The campus car parks are controlled by automatic barriers and access is only granted to permit holders. Permits are stored electronically on UCA Identity Cards, which can be swiped against barrier card readers to gain access.
Annual parking permits are available for a fee of £10. The fee is non-refundable and is fixed at £10, regardless of whether the permit is provided at the beginning of the academic year or any time thereafter up to and including the last day of the academic year.
Parking permits provide the user with access to the car parks, but do not guarantee a parking space with daily access on a first come first served basis. When all spaces are occupied, it is the individual's responsibility to find parking off campus.
Public Car Parks
There are local public pay and display car parks within a short walking distance of the University.
Significant discounts on term-time season tickets are available to UCA students and staff in Waverley Borough Council’s Riverside 3 public car park, which is about a fifteen-minute walk to campus through Farnham Town Centre. Follow the link below for further information.
