    I've heard that you have to go to the darwin building to get one, its probably from security but someone can correct me on that if its wrong!

    nope, its not the darwin. go into chancellors, that corner near la cafe, in the big entrancy bit where they have art work and stuff on the walls. Its like a reception desk, and has a sign saying carparking on one side, and something else on the other side. (like 'accomodation', i cant remember exactly!).
    You just need 50 squid and your keele card. Then you fill in a little card and hand it over. its dead simple.
    then they give you your permit there and then. (DONT lose it )like I did.... i had to pay again )

    Just a final tip, make sure you read EXACTLY where your allowed to park because they will fine you even if the car park is nowhere near full or no matter how short your car will be there!

    Ive had 5 parking tickets since ive been to Keele in two years.
