Staff Car Parking

The new Car Park Management system:
why we need to do it?

Following feedback from staff, Unions, the Student Union and the appeals process, the Car Parking Team have been working with Greater Manchester Transport Unit to create a bespoke online car parking application and allocation system.

The new system will be more equitable and quicker to use. The allocation criteria has been reviewed following consultation and feedback from last year's appeal process and will access a greater range of work and social based factors in order to allocate the finite number of car parking spaces to those staff with the highest need.

There will be some paper based applications available for those staff who may not have access to a computer or feel uncomfortable using the new online software but we really want to encourage everyone to try the online system. It is very quick, easy to use and will allow us to contact you at different stages of your application so you remain fully informed throughout.

You will need an MMU Login ID and password to access the system. For further information, please refer to the Frequently Asked Questions document.
