I'm planning to apply for the bay campus accommodation in Swansea University and I can't find any information about parking whilst living there! Does anyone know how much it would cost or if there is free parking nearby the bay campus accommodations?
Parking on-campus can be a little difficult, but there are solutions we can offer. First of all, thank you to @swanseajack1 for covering some of it already!
If you have special dispensation from our welfare or disability departments, permanent parking passes can be arranged. However, if that is not the case we do offer out-of-hours permits for purchase that allow you to park on campus between 4pm and 8am on weekdays, as well as all weekend. However, to leave the car on campus during the day you would need to then use our pay-and-display facilities if there is space, or otherwise take your car out during the day.
I will admit that my knowledge of the full set of rules is a little basic, but if you send an email in to [email protected] they will be more than happy to provide you with further detailed information.
I hope this helps!
Students living in University accommodation
If you are an undergraduate or postgraduate student and live in University accommodation, on or off campus, you are not permitted to park a motor vehicle:
on University property
on public roads within the city of Bath boundaries
We may grant permits for exceptional circumstances, like medical conditions.
Another example from Exeter
Students residing in Halls/flats or those residing within the city boundary (post codes EX1, EX2 & EX4) are NOT eligible to apply for a permit. Read more at https://www.exeter.ac.uk/students/ca...6lBR8GJuq1S.99
The policy from Durham
Q. What are the criteria? A. Students will only be entitled to apply for a permit to park on University premises if they meet one of the following criteria: they have an exceptional medical need and are in possession of a blue badge; they live in University premises and have academic commitments requiring them to travel to locations not easily accessible by public transport; they have other exceptional circumstances; Students who are active in elite sport representing the University may also apply. NB. Students who fall into this category and who are awarded a permit will only be allowed to park in restricted locations.

What parking facilities are there at the Bay Campus and surrounding area?
There is parking for 600 cars at the Bay Campus including staff parking, disabled spaces, 100 pay and display spaces and parking for visitors to the Site of Special Scientific Interest.
Staff Permits allow staff to park on both campuses.
There is a controlled parking zone in Elba Crescent and Baldwin’s Crescent to avoid overspill parking.
Is there parking for students?
As has been longstanding University policy, there is no parking for students on either campus. However, parking for students is available at the Swansea City Council recreational ground at Singleton and the Fabian Way ‘park and ride’ facility for the Bay Campus, where students can connect with a bus to the Bay Campus and Singleton Park Campus. Students with disabilities will be able to park on campus – such cases will be dealt with on a case by case basis.
