A car parking policy for Motor Vehicles is in place and full details can be found for both staff and students on our internal Estates and Facilities Car Parking information pages. Full details on the application process is also available on Sharepoint.

Durham University is doing all it can to reduce the use of private cars; making the best use of existing facilities, managing travel demands and promoting the use of more sustainable modes of transport. So, unless you meet the needs-based parking criteria or are a blue badge holder, it’s best to leave your car at home. There are plenty of great alternatives like buses, bikes and taxis for getting around. Students 
can travel on Arriva bus services at discounted rates, check the Greenspace webpages for details. Links to cycle and walking maps are also available on the Car Parking &Travel Sharepoint.
