I'm a mature student starting at Southampton Uni this September. I'm at a bit of a loss as to what I'm going to do with my car...
I need my car for a variety of mundane things, namely work and visiting my boyfriend. Definitely nothing I can imagine the uni finding that exceptional. I've looked up the parking regulations and it specifically rules out using part time work as a reason to be allowed a parking permit.
I want to move into halls in September. Does anyone have any experience of people getting a parking permit without a medical reason? I feel like as an independent student, they can hardly expect me to sell my car, especially when I do still need it. I'd happily shell out £££ for a permit but that doesn't even look like an option. I literally have nowhere to keep a car except with me. Will I be able to find street parking in walking distance of halls?
