The University is committed to sustainability and reducing our environmental and social impact. Most students living on campus find they manage without a car. There are fast and direct links to and from the University of Hertfordshire via the University’s bus company, Uno which runs local buses throughout Hertfordshire and into North London and connects to the local railway stations.
Parking at the University is limited, therefore you must have a parking permit to park on campus. If you live on the College Lane Campus, you can apply to purchase a residential parking permit, if you meet the defined criteria. These are extremely limited and if you don’t have one you won’t be authorised to park. Unfortunately we don’t allow residential student parking at the de Havilland campus.
Please note that students with a residential parking permit are not allocated a specific space. Parking spaces are spread throughout the residences and a permit will not guarantee a space outside your particular block.
Unfortunately, there is no residential student parking at de Havilland except for blue badge holders and your accommodation contract terms and conditions state you must not bring a vehicle with you.
If you hold a blue badge for a personal disability and will be living on the de Havilland campus please contact the housing services team on email@example.com to discuss your parking requirements.
