Student parking is limited so normally you would have to park in an actual non-uni car park and then get the bus or walk in , or something like that. If it absolutely necessary then you can apply for permit but you have to meet criteria that they have listed on their website. This is only if you are a student there.

If it’s for an open day , they let people park on campus but like before it’s limited and right now there is construction going on so it’s even more limited. They do have a park and ride for these situations , don’t know if that’s on all year though or just for open days.

To be honest your best bet is finding somewhere near to park that isn’t the actual uni and getting in from there.

Hi,

I graduated from University of Birmingham in July and I now work for the College of Arts and Law.

The University has three main accommodation villages, The Vale, Pritchatts Park and Selly Oak Village. Parking is generally quite limited in Selly Oak Village, however there are generally more spaces available to residents at Pritchatts Park and sometimes The Vale. There is a charge for a resident parking permit at University owned accommodation villages, this is £290 for 42 weeks.

You can find more information on parking here: https://www.birmingham.ac.uk/study/a...tion/faqs.aspx under the section 'I have accepted my accommodation offer'.

There is sometimes slightly more parking available at Partner Accommodation sites, but this varies by site and it's always best to check with accommodation providers beforehand.

I hope this helps!

Molly

Hi,

I'm a current student at UoB and just thought i'd add onto what molly said from my experience. I lived in Liberty Court, one of the partner accomodations and they have a large, gated car park which is free to use if you're living there. I kept my car their for 4 months in my first year.

Cheers,
James
