FAQs for staff
Answers to popular queries about car parking on UWE Bristol campuses for staff. Please also refer to FAQs for all drivers.
What are the criteria for allocating a permit?
Can I get a refund on my permit if I no longer need it?
Are there any discounts on car parking?
If you're contractually needed to work a shift pattern that partly covers the car parking charge window of 9:00 – 17:00 (ie starting before 7:30 and/or ending after 20:00, as confirmed by their line manager), you'll get a 50% discount on these costs, due to limited public transport options that are available at these times.
Grade A contract
In line with the University’s commitment to the living wage campaign, staff on a UWE Bristol contract at grade A will not have to pay a charge – although they will still need to apply for a permit.
How does a salary sacrifice scheme work? Will it affect my NI contributions, tax or credits?
What happens if I lose my permit?
I would like to car share occasionally - which permit do I need to apply for?
What do I do if my car share partner is away? Can I bring my car in?
Yes. But if the permit is registered to your vehicle and you don't have a passenger, you won't be allowed to park in a car share space.
If the permit is registered to your car share partner’s vehicle, then you’ll need to find an alternative way to campus until they return. We’re looking at options for flexible car share permits, so please watch this space.
I have a courtesy car or personal hire care for a few days - what should I do?
If you do not have a permit, you must apply in the usual way.
I have changed my car - do I need to re-apply for a permit?
If I have a temporary disability - what can I do to make parking easier?
