For some journeys, travelling by car is the only option. You can still reduce your fuel consumption, costs and emissions by car sharing, greener driving techniques or by using car clubs.

This page provides information about parking at both Headingley and City Campus.

Our campus car parks are administered by our car park co-ordinator. Resident permits are dealt with by the Accommodation team and our Disability Advice team deal with accessibility requests.

There is limited fee-based student parking at both the City Campus and Headingley Campus – details of this are below. Students with accessibility needs may be eligible for free parking or a parking permit. There are limited parking permits available at Headingley Campus for students.
