Changes to parking on the way
Our new parking system has been in place since September and, as with anything new, we’ve been listening to your comments and working to understand what the issues are and what needs changing.
On the 27th February we launch our new monthly payment app, which will replace the online system and make your payments easier. We’ll link to the new app from this newsletter when it’s available.
This new monthly payment option means that you no longer have to purchase and display a physical permit. We’ll also be increasing the car parking space for PayByPhone users, by opening up the Lowry Car Park to people who have downloaded the app.
As a result of your feedback, from the end of March we will also introduce pay and display parking options at Allerton, Irwell Place and Mary Seacole.
We know that finding a space can sometimes be an issue, so we’ve been monitoring the car parks to understand how quickly they fill up. There are over 500 car parking spaces on the Allerton campus, and you can usually find a space until around 9.30 in the morning. After this, Adelphi House and Farmer Norton car parks are good options. You can find out more on our parking web pages.
As you’d expect, we need to manage our parking to make sure that we can accommodate as many people as possible, and that everyone follows the same rules. That said, we know that the changes have caused some issues, and we want to make sure we continue to hear and act on your concerns.
If you have any comments to make about parking at Salford University, or want to talk to us about what you think, you can contact us at Estates-SupportTeam@salford.ac.uk
