Student Car Parking

  • Any student living in halls of residence is not permitted to bring a vehicle to Oxford.

    Student parking is available at the Wheatley, Harcourt Hill and Swindon campuses to those who fulfil the eligibility criteria as set out in the frequently asked questions (FAQs). No student parking is available at Headington Campus (including Marston Road), except for those students with a valid Blue Badge – though you must also have a valid Blue Badge Parking Permit issued by the University to park on-site.

    Students who have not yet applied for a new, virtual parking permit and qualify for one, should apply  through the online parking permit application portal.

    Permits cost just £10 per year and a daily charge of 50p (25p for 4 hours or less) will then apply for each day you park on-site during peak hours (07.00 - 16.30, Monday to Friday). ‘Pay and display’ style machines are in place in all car parks to accept these payments and accept cash and credit/debit card, although a ticket will not need to be displayed. Outside of peak hours students with a permit will be able to park for free on the sites at which their permit is valid.

    Please be aware that possession of a parking permit does not guarantee a parking space. We anticipate that most students will have no issue parking as needed, but there may be days when parking is limited.
