    Hi, so I've been rejected for a halls parking permit, but I require my car as I use it almost every day to go gym. Apparently the uni says they monitor cars parked in halls, but I'm not sure if this is true or not. It's quite annoying now as I have to find parking outside my halls which is quite inconvenient and less safe, I don't understand why the uni is making such a big deal out of it, I'm in my final year and I don't need this hassle 😩.

    Hi,

    The university does monitor the halls' car parks as the space is very limited and should only be used by those with permission.

    Due to the limited space, the priority for places goes to those with disability and mobility issue.

    If you have already made an application and it has been rejected, you are able to appeal so long as this is done within five days of your rejection.
    I imagine you have already seen the following page but it might be worth having a read over as it contains information relevant to you and also the details of appeal: http://www.reading.ac.uk/parking/stu...decision_halls

    The following is the criteria which states who may be eligible, as you can see, priority must go to those with disability and mobility issues: http://www.reading.ac.uk/web/files/p...ia_2017_18.pdf

    I personally don't have any experience applying for a permit, this is just what I have gathered from searching the university website etc.

    There is always the University's ask a question page should you wish to get an official answer from the University. This can be found at the following: https://www.reading.ac.uk/forms/crm/question.aspx

    Any other questions, let us know!

    I understand completely that priority is for disabled and mobility students, but there are plenty of spaces still available and I honestly think the uni is being too strict about this. I'm finding this very stressful as I'm having to deal with this issue on top of my final year commitments. I don't need this hassle as I just want to focus on my studies. I hope you can help. Thanks.

    Hi there,

    Of course I understand that this is annoying for you especially the fact you are in final year and have a lot of other things on your plate. However, there are not enough spaces for everyone at the university who has a car to park therefore there has to be rules for everyone.

    If you are still unhappy, maybe you should take this up with someone at the University, I would suggest trying the Carrington Building.

    Hope this helps,
