Parking at the University

Visitor parking

At the University of Hertfordshire, we use Hozah, which makes paying for parking quick, easy, and convenient.

The first two hours of your stay on campus are free, and you will only be charged £2 for each day that you are on campus. If you only plan on parking at the University for under two hours, you do not need to register with Hozah.

Following the initial free two-hour period, there is a no-return period of three hours. If you return before the three hour no-return period is up, you will need to pay for parking. If you return after more than three hours, you are eligible for another free two hours.

If you are a Blue Badge holder, you will only be charged £1, but you will need to upload a copy of your badge to the Hozah website. You only need to register your car and payment details once on the Hozah website.

To park on campus, you will need to:

  • Complete a one-time sign up on the Hozah website with your number plate and payment details​ – this can be done at any time including before or during your visit, and must be completed by 23.59 on the day you first park on campus. You do not need to register again if you already have a Hozah account.
  • Park on campus and you'll be charged automatically after staying for over two hours – no need to pay on site​.
  • Keep track of your payments on the Hozah website dashboard.

You will only need to pay for parking between Monday – Friday, 07.00 – 19.00. If you have any questions or queries, please contact our Parking team.

You can park in any of our visitor car parks. View parking map. 

Please note, residential parking for on campus accommodation has different parking restrictions. More information can be found on Ask Herts.

Park and Ride

The Park and Ride car park (located at Angerland) is open to all staff, students and visitors at no charge from 07.00 - 22.00, Monday - Friday. The postcode for the car park is AL10 8HS and it is located off Junction 2 of the A1(M) on Southway (A1001).

During term time, there is a regular shuttle bus service that runs every 10 minutes from the car park to College Lane and de Havilland. You’ll need to purchase a ticket to ride the shuttle bus which costs £1 for one ticket. You can purchase a ticket on the bus using cash, or pay by cashless payments (e.g. Apple pay and contactless).

Outside of term time, the shuttle bus service does not run, however you can still park in the car park for free and walk to campus. Click to watch our TikTok to see the walking route.
