From 1 November 2019, arrangements for visitors and other non-permit holders using Staffordshire University car parks were changed to reduce on-campus congestion. If you intend to drive to and park on one of our car parks regularly, you may wish to consider applying for a parking permit. New and existing students and staff can apply for a parking permit through the CPP portal.
Please bear in mind that students and staff whose term-time postcodes are located within a two-mile radius of the University will not automatically qualify for a permit. Parking permit holders are entitled to look for a vacant parking bay, but are not guaranteed a space on Staffordshire University car parks.
New off-peak tariffs, designed to make parking on campus outside of teaching hours more affordable for non-permit holders and visitors, will also be introduced from the same date.
| Monday - Friday (peak) 7am - 5pm||Monday - Friday (off-peak) After 5pm | Before 7am |
|Up to 30 minutes
|Up to two hours
|Up to four hours
|Over four hours
|Weekends (off-peak) Saturday - Sunday|
|Up to 30 minutes
|* All tariffs include the first 30 minutes free
