Parking on campus

It is, in theory at least, possible to find a parking space on central campus zone (parking zone A). However, as there are only a limited number of parking spaces available, we recommend that you leave your vehicle in one of the car parks. Permission to park free of charge within the central campus zone is restricted to certain groups (e.g. members of university staff).

Parking on central campus zone (parking zone A)

To park on central campus you will need to take a ticket at the barrier. Keep your ticket and pay at one of the pay point machines before exiting campus. Even if you are simply passing through campus or if your stay will be less than 60 minutes in duration, you must still take a ticket at the barrier on arrival and enter your ticket into the ticket-reader slot at the barrier on exiting. Look after your ticket. If you lose it, you will be charged the maximum daily rate of €15.

Parking charges for the central campus zone (parking zone A)

  • Short-stay parking up to 60 minutes or if passing through campus: no charge
  • Parking on work days between 7 a.m. and 5 p.m.: €4 for the first hour, then €2 per hour, max. daily rate of €15, the first 60 min. are free of charge
