We encourage our students to travel as sustainably as possible by walking, cycling or using public transport to get to university. We do understand however, that some students may need to travel further and therefore use their own vehicle.

Parking outside of core hours

All DMU students can use the Main Car Park free of charge outside of core hours, between 5.30pm and 7am. You must have a validated ID card in order to access the car park. Cards can be validated at the DMU Security office.

Parking within core hours

In order to park within core working hours, from 7.30am to 5.30pm, you must have been issued with a DMU parking permit. There are two types of permits available, the Local Authority Blue Badge Disabled Permit and the DMU Assessed Needs Permit.

Local Authority Blue Badge Disabled Permit

The Local Authority Blue Badge Disabled Permit is a free permit for Local Authority Blue Badge holders only. Permit holders can park in any parking bay on campus, but should use the designated disabled parking bays wherever possible.

Find out how to apply here.

DMU Assessed Needs Permit

The DMU Assessed Needs Permit has been designed to support students who do not hold a Local Authority Blue Badge, but who, for medical reasons, require access to parking close to their place of study. Permit holders are permitted to park in any parking bay on campus, including the designated disabled parking bays.

Permit issuance is subject to approval from the Disability Services Team. Find out how to apply here.

This appointment will also give you an opportunity to discuss support and to ensure you are accessing all the disability support asvailable to you.

You can find out more about student car parking here and read our Vehicle Parking and Cycle Policy.

If you have any queries, please contact the Estates Helpdesk by email estateshelpdesk@dmu.ac.uk or call 0116 250 6366.
