Parking Permit Information 2012
Application For Parking Permit
Applying for a Parking Permit
The University introduced a new policy this year whereby staff who apply to pay or currently pay permits by monthly payroll deductions are issued with a “lifelong” permit which is no longer renewed each session. Staff will be notified in advance of permit cost changes by payslip message or email annually. The permit issued remains with the holder until such times as they no longer require it.
Individuals who are required to pay annually or are exempt from payment for varying reasons receive a differing style parking permit. This style is required to be renewed each session. A reminder will be sent to holders that fall into this category (around every August) in advance of the new permit issue date.
Applicant’s must include on the application form particulars of each vehicle they may wish to bring onto campus (only one vehicle will be permitted at any one time) in order that these may be covered by the permit. Only one permit will be issued regardless of the number of vehicles and this must be displayed on whichever is being parked.
Permit charges are determined by the University Estates Committee annually. The charge is applied at the time of issue and staff may pay by monthly payroll deduction. All other categories must pay in full by cheque made payable to University of Glasgow or in certain circumstances by cash payment.
As of session 2012/13 which begins 01 October 2012, the Estates Committee has agreed that a revised charge structure will be implemented as follows:
Staff Car - £200
Student Car - £170
Staff Motorcycle - £50
Student Motorcycle - £40
Staff Car - £140
Student Car - £120
Staff Motorcycle - £50
Student Motorcycle - £40
University permit holders may park on the north side of Lilybank Car Park during each 24 hours period; so long as a current University parking permit is displayed on the vehicle windscreen. Vehicles must be parked within parked areas.
Arrangements for Disabled Students, Staff or Visitors using Glasgow University Campus Areas.
Blue badge holders are welcome to park on campus in any of the designated parking areas without the need to have purchased a University parking permit. Regular users of this facility are required to complete a Parking Permit Application form as it is a requirement that a University permit is displayed on the vehicle also. The permit will be provided free of charge. Should any specific guidance be required on entering the Campus, staff at the Gatehouse will be happy to assist. Staff or students who do not hold a blue badge, but have a disability related reason to require parking on main campus should contact staff at the Main Gatehouse for advice and assistance. Please note that regular users in this category will require to apply for a University parking permit, but will be given priority when permits are issued. Staff at the Student Disability Service at 65 Southpark Avenue are able to assist disabled students requiring support for a permit application. Disabled staff should refer to their Head of Department or other appropriate departmental contact for support in making an application where required.
The University has installed electrically operated barriers on the Main Campus at Gilmorehill, Garscube Estate Main entrance and St. Andrew's Building (Park Campus). These may be operated by Traffic/Security staff or by a Swipe Card inserted into a reader system at entrance points. Barriers are designed to rise as a vehicle approaches to depart and all drivers, apart from being aware of this function should exercise caution. It is also essential that slow speed is maintained at all Barriers. Non-card holders in possession of University permits at Gilmorehill may park within the Main Campus so long as they enter via the Main Gate.
The University Parking Permit System may be reviewed at any time.
University Parking Regulations - (copy issued with permits)
Please note permits are issued subject to compliance with the Parking Regulations of the University Court regarding car parking and traffic within the University grounds and on the understanding no liability can be accepted by the University for loss or damage sustained within the University grounds. Traffic and Security Patrolmen are responsible for the carrying out of the Regulations and will report infringements to the Head of Central Services. As their task is a difficult one, co-operation and understanding are essential.
Disregard of Regulations is likely to be the subject of a written report to the Secretary of Court, Senate, Head of Department or Director of Human Resources.
