Hi all,

Does anyone know if the university allows me to park my motorbike on the jubilee campus and main nottingham campus?

I would be staying in the jubilee campus.

Thanks,

Leo

CompSci students I know who have motorbikes lock up their bikes under the bicycle racks; don't think they have permits and don't see them getting a ticket.

This says:

Motorcyclists will not be charged for parking providing they park in designated motorcycle bays and do not take up a car parking space.

Why? Far fewer people use motorbikes, and they take up much less space than a car.

So?! That's like saying thin people take up much less room on an airplane but they still let the chunkier ones on because it would discriminate against them otherwise.

What? No it isn't. The reason the university has a permit scheme is because there's nowhere near enough space for everyone to drive in and park. If motorcycles aren't taking up a parking space, why should they require a permit?

If we all ride motorbikes there still wouldn't be enough room either.

Are there any covered motorcycle bays at the uni? Just thinking about whether it'd be worth taking mine there, wouldn't want it exposed to rain for an entire year

Hi Leo, yes, you can park a bike on campus. About a year ago I spoke with Security when parking my bike and they confirmed that so long as I wasn't in a CAR parking bay I didn't need a permit or a ticket. There are some MB bays dotted around, or so long as you've locked up out of the way no-one really minds. I used to stick it on the end of a bicycle rack where I could, but that's pretty rare given so many people cycle.

Podolshi - there aren't any official covered parking areas for motorbikes, but I have seen bikes parked in the shelter offered under the Coates building/steps.

Hope that helps guys.
