If you want to park your car on campus then you’re going to need to apply for a parking permit. Not all students are eligible for a permit, and if you are and you’d like to apply then you have a specific time window to do so.

Details are below, or if you prefer you can download the parking application process as a PDF.

Applying for a University of Hull Parking Permit, including eligibility

  • Permits will be issued on a first come, first served basis
  • Only students living over eight miles from the University during term time will be eligible to apply
  • Estates need to verify student’s term time addresses so will not be able to confirm if a student has been successful in their application until after they have registered (fully, not pre-registered)
  • Temporary permits will no longer be issued to students unless for a change of vehicle registration
  • During Welcome Week, we advise that students don’t drive onto campus and plan their travel in advance
  • If students do need to drive onto campus, they can park in the Wilberforce car park (subject to spaces being available). The cost of parking in the car park is £1 for four hours or £2 for a full day. Wilberforce is a pay on foot, card only system. Spaces are not guaranteed, particularly after 9am during weekdays.

(students should still pay on foot until they have collected their permit)


Blue Badge Holders

  • Blue badge holders will be able to park on campus and will be given a Blue Badge holder permit. They will still need to register with Estates to enable us to monitor demand for disabled parking spaces. There is no charge for a parking permit for Blue Badge holders.
  • During Welcome Week, Blue Badge holders can park anywhere on campus* without a University permit as long as they display their badge (*excluding the Wilberforce car park)


  • A parking permit doesn’t guarantee a parking space on campus. Terms and conditions apply.
  • Students who register late (for example in October) still need to apply for a permit within the application timeframe. These students will be able to pick up their permits once they have fully registered at the University.
