University Car Parking Policy 2012-13
Lancaster University has excellent bus services (up to 16 per hour) and good cycle routes. Most students find they do not need a car.
For transport information see: http://www.lancs.ac.uk/facilities/travel/
Access to parking permits is regulated to limited student categories to ensure that those students who do need a car are eligible for a car parking permit. Students without a permit should not park inappropriately on any public highway surrounding the University campus. Pay and display visitor parking on campus should be used in these instances. Pay and display tickets are only valid in designated Visitor Car Parks.
Student Eligibility for Parking Permits
The Eligibility Application Form 2012-13 is now available under each of the 4 categories listed below.
You need to complete the Eligibility Application Form every year and provide the required evidence for the category you are applying under, even if this has been supplied before, as this is University Policy.
You will have to wait until you receive your Lancaster University Email address which will be sent to you sometime early September, before you can submit the Eligibility Application Form. In the mean time, you can start the process by completing the rest of the form and collecting the evidence required for the category you are applying under. Once you’ve received your Lancaster University email address and all the evidence required please send to the address shown at the bottom of the form.
