Car Parking

Car parking is very restricted, both on University land and in the city centre in general. All vehicles on University land require a valid permit. 

Staff parking

Staff are encouraged to use the city's Park & Ride service or join the free University car share scheme.

Staff who need to bring their car into Oxford regularly should read the University Car Parking Policy and Standing Orders before completing an application form for a parking permit. Staff permits are issued solely on the basis of need, as assessed against the criteria outlined in the regulations (as opposed to status, length of service or any other factor).

Staff with severe mobility impairments holding a current Blue Badge should be automatically entitled to a free parking space as close as possible to the accessible entrance of their main workplace. Please see the disabled car parking section for further details.

Visitor parking

Visitors to the University should contact the relevant department, faculty or other unit to obtain a visitor’s permit.
