Parking permits

Permit parking is in place at most of the University of Brighton's campuses. However, a parking permit does not guarantee that a parking space will be available for your use.

Moulsecoomb, Falmer and Eastbourne have different coloured parking permits that are specific to their individual sites. If you wish to park at different campuses you will need a permit for each one.

Permit holders may park in any designated parking space of university campus car parks. This does not include spaces designated for 'disabled drivers' or pre-booked 'reserved or visitor spaces'.

Please note the following individual campus information:
