How easy or difficult is it to get a parking permit for accommodation on the campus?
I'm a mature student living in Kent and I will possibly be going to UoR in September 2013. If I do go I would live in halls.
However, as I am a mature student I have several commitments back home including a house which I will need to visit every so often because it may be unoccupied for periods of time. I would also like to continue going to networking events related to my career which are often in rural areas where is it not possible to get to on public transport. In short, I really need my car.
From what I've read on the website it looks very difficult/unlikely that I'd be able to get a permit for on-campus parking.
If it's not possible is there anywhere near the campus where I could park which is relatively safe?
