Residential student parking

The University is committed to sustainability and reducing our environmental and social impact and most students living on campus find they don't need a car. There are fast and direct links to and from our campuses via the University’s bus company, Uno which runs local buses throughout Hertfordshire and into North London and connects to the local railway stations.

If you do still want to bring a car, there are a limited number of parking spaces available and you can apply to purchase a residential parking permit if you meet the criteria below.

Application process

Applications for the 2021/22 academic year are open now.

Please note this is not a first come, first served service; all applications will be reviewed against the published criteria and therefore suitable evidence must be attached to your application. Please make sure you have your evidence as a single scanned document available when you apply. Please do not send any evidence by email.

In addition to meeting one of the criteria listed on this page, you will also need to have a confirmed accommodation booking for the College Lane Campus to be eligible for a permit.

If your permit application is approved we will contact you with further information about how to provide your vehicle details and make a payment.
