As we are a city-based university, on-campus parking is limited. However, there are some options for Medway and Tunbridge Wells.


Parking on Canterbury campus is limited, so we recommend cycling and walking, using public transport and the park and ride service as alternatives. Please make sure you read the Sustainable Travel Policy and Procedure.

Medway and Tunbridge Wells

Student parking is only available at Medway campus and for those students studying in Tunbridge Wells. In order to park on location, you will need to apply for a parking permit. Please make sure you read the Sustainable Travel Policy and Procedure before applying.

Applying for a permit

You will need to complete the Student Car Parking Application form and submit it, by email, to the reception desk at the campus at which you are based.

For Medway permits, please contact and for Tunbridge Wells permits, email

Once finalised, student permits will need to be collected from the relevant campus reception desk.

Parking permit cancellation

All students leaving the university or wishing to cancel their permit will need to complete the Cancellation of Parking Permit form and return it to their local campus reception for processing. No refunds are made when a permit is cancelled.

Changes to details

If you wish to change the car registration on your permit please email the details of the required change to the Facilities Helpdesk. If you lose your permit, please also contact Facilities Helpdesk for a replacement permit. However, there will be a £10 charge to replace lost or defaced permits.
