Reminder: parking permits must be displayed on your dashboard
If you drive to university, you must display your parking permits on your dashboard so that it is visible in the windscreen to avoid receiving a parking ticket and a fine.
Prices were recently made far more competitive for you through our decision to join the paybyphone app, but our new parking providers are having to cancel a number of parking tickets every day and this will soon cease to continue – so make sure you don’t get stung.
Car users are asked to pay on entry to all car parks, with the new day rates allowing customers to pay £1.20 for 90 minutes, £2.40 for 180 minutes and £4 for a whole day (9.00am-10.00pm). Alternatively, you can park on Farmer Norton car park for £2 all day or at the David Lewis (Wallness Lane) car park for two hours for free if you’re using the Sports Centre, providing you register with Sports Centre reception staff when you arrive.
Monthly and annual student permits are still available and you can find more information about these here.
The app can be downloaded on Google Play, the App Store and Blackberry World.
Car users who do not own a smart phone, can pay by calling 0161 880 0100.
Please note: Lowry car park and Peel Car parks are designated for permit holders only.
