Hi i'm attending Portsmouth University starting in September 2016. I have a car and was wondering if there was anywhere to park while I was there. I hope to be living in James Watson Halls, so anywhere relatively close to there would be best. Thank you

your best try would be just to drive around look for no permit roads because there's no parking on campus unfortunately x

Hi! Hannah from the Student Housing team here at UoP. The university is in agreement with the local council that, if you are allocated a room in either the Guildhall Halls or Rees/Burrell halls, you cannot bring a car with you. Portsmouth is a very small city and everything is in super-easy walking or cycling distance! If you need a car to get to/from placements for your course, then Langstone is the only halls site with parking (and you need to purchase a permit for it which is only usable at that car park!)

Just to clarify, do I need to be a student at the langstone campus to be able to get a parking permit there? It just being a uni if ports student means I can get a permit?

I have seen online that you can buy an annual parking permit for £75 however does not give alot of information. Where can this be used? Is it legit?

Hey,

Langstone Campus is closed (its no longer used as student accommodation) so details on parking there you will need to look at the signs alongside the road or through the council to apply just as you would do when parking anywhere else.

Hope this helps.

Hi,

Where were you looking and saw the price? I would refer to the council website
https://www.portsmouth.gov.uk/ext/pa...arking-permits
My housemate got a permit for the year and it costed him £30 (annual permit). He applied through the council website.

Hope this helps.
