If you live off Campus and study at Crewe you can apply for a car parking permit for campus car parks.
Permits are currently free of charge for day students.
If you don’t have a permit for your car and you park on either campus, you will be fined up to £70.
If you live in Davenport, Harley and Barlow Halls of Residence, no parking is provided.
If you live at Booth Hall, you can purchase a residential parking permit for £180. You will be contacted regarding this once you confirm your hall.
As of 13th September, any car parking policy in place at Alsager will be suspended and students and visitors will be able to park free of charge and without a permit. The inter-site bus will also be running and more information will be available under the inter-site bus tab.
All applications for parking will be assessed on the criteria within the car park access application form.
The application process will begin on 5th September 2012 and run until 12th October 2012.
Applications will not be accepted outside of this application window unless there are extenuating circumstances.
Applications will be assessed and successful students will receive an MMU parking display permit for their vehicle until July 2012.
To protect the interests of all permit holders the car parks will be patrolled daily to ensure all permit holders are being inconvenienced as little as possible by drivers who are not complying with the Terms & Conditions of the parking policy. This is to ensure safety, fairness and equity for all.
Anyone failing to comply with the Terms & Conditions of the use of the University Car Park agrees to pay an additional parking charge of £70 within 28 days, reduced to £35 if paid within 14 days. A parking charge notice to this effect will be issued to you.
The patrols will be carried out by The Car Parking Partnership, specialist car park operators, on behalf of MMU. The Car Parking Partnership is an organisation who operates many University Car Parks successfully (for example, Keele University). As a member of the British Parking Association it is obliged to abide by the British Car Parking Association’s Code Of Practice.
PLEASE NOTE: Your permit does not guarantee a parking space. The permit only entitles you to bring your vehicle on site for you to look for an available designated parking space. If one is not available you must seek alternative parking arrangements off campus. Please consider our neighbours when doing so and do not park as to cause an obstruction or annoyance.
No students are permitted to park on any of the University’s car parks without completing an application form and being successful in obtaining a valid student parking permit.
These conditions will also be clearly set out on signs within the car parks. By entering the car park and parking your car you are deemed to agree to these conditions, and have contracted to be legally bound by them.
Payments should be made to the Car Parking Partnership direct, not to the University:
If a civil parking notice is issued and is not paid in the allotted time, the vehicle keeper details will be obtained from the DVLA, which will result in further action being taken to recover the additional parking charge.
If a civil parking notice is not paid within the allotted time (and is not subject to a valid appeal), the access permit will be temporarily suspended and access to the car parks denied until the charge is paid.
Should a permit holder receive three parking charge notices within any 12 month period, they will lose the right to apply for a permit within the next permit application period.
Appeals against parking charge notices must be directed to the Car Parking Partnership, not to the University.
Representations can only be received in writing, either to the Car Parking Partnership website, or by registered mail to the Car Parking Partnership address: PO Box 597, Northampton, NN4 7XN.
When an appeal is received, the notice is held at its current amount until a response is made to the person making the appeal.
If your appeal is denied, you will be sent a letter giving the reasons for the denial and a period of 14 days in which to settle the notice at its then, current outstanding amount (i.e. the rate it was at when the appeal was received). The appeal outcome is final.
Your Cheshire permit will not allow you to park at Manchester campuses. Permits are only given to students with medical or European Blue Badge Holders on Manchester campuses.
Space on all MMU car parks is very limited and for this reason a needs based permit allocation criteria has been implemented, based on access to public transport, journey length, medical/disability and other social and academic related criteria.
The University Directorate have taken the decision to allow applications for car parking permits from day students based at the Cheshire Campus and only students with medical or European Blue Badge Holders at the Manchester Campuses.
The University’s car parking policy has been introduced to manage the number of cars coming to our campuses through demand management measures, which are guided by local planning obligations. Under its 2020 Vision for the University, MMU is presently undergoing a programme of transformation, consolidation and reconfiguration of its existing estate. Under this programme, it is envisaged that the number of MMU sites will be reduced down to just two centres at All Saints/Birley Fields in Manchester and Crewe in South Cheshire.
MMU are committed to reducing CO2 emissions and would like to encourage all our students to travel to our campus’ using public transport, wherever possible. All our sites have good public transport links from surrounding areas and beyond.
There are designated disabled parking spaces on all university campuses, placed in strategic locations near to major buildings, lecture rooms, library and other main facilities. You must still apply for a permit if you have a disabled blue badge or a temporary disability.
On the Crewe campus these are in front of the Reception/library building and also opposite the Campus Shop.
At Alsager they are in front of Reception, the former Contemporary Arts block, opposite the Wesley Centre, Sports Hall and in front of the Student Services building.
Wherever possible students are encouraged to share their journeys with fellow students which will not only help save themselves money but will also help reduce demand for car parking spaces and reduce carbon emissions.
