Workplace Parking Levy

Leicester City Council may introduce a Workplace Parking Levy in autumn 2023. Should this come into force then student parking may need to be reconsidered.

Terms and conditions:

This offer is subject to the following pricing and terms and conditions. For any questions or queries please contact: estateshelpdesk@dmu.ac.uk.

  • Applications will be checked for Campus Exclusion, prior to approval.

Should notice be given, permits will expire at the end of the month, with a full refund thereafter.
