I’m a student, how do I register my vehicle to park at the University?

Home / Help and Advice / Getting here and getting in touch / Parking at the University / How do students register their vehicles to park?

University accommodation

If you’re living in University accommodation, you must register your vehicle. This entitles you to free parking at your contracted accommodation site. Students whose vehicles are registered at the accommodation are not permitted to park on teaching campuses between 8am – 5pm on weekdays and are encouraged to use the University’s free campus bus and Connect service.


Pay to Park

If you do not live at University accommodation, you can register your vehicle to allow it to be parked on campus. This enables you to park at the reduced rate of 35p per hour (up to a maximum of £1.30 per day). Please ensure you enter your term time address. If you have any questions, please contact Facilities on 0191 515 3366 or parkingservices@sunderland.ac.uk.

Please note this email address should not be used for appeals against Parking Charge Notices.


Blue Badge

If you’re a Blue Badge holder, you can register your vehicle for University Blue Badge parking. This enables you to park for free, in designated disabled parking bays on campus. If you do not hold a Blue Badge, you must contact the Disability Support Team prior to applying for a permit. 

To register your vehicle for parking at the University, please complete and submit this form.

The University operates a cashless parking system that allows staff and students to pay by the following methods:

  • Via the JustPark app which is available via Google Play or iTunes, if you have a smartphone
  • By following the directions on car parking signs if you do not have a smartphone
  • By paying in advance using the JustPark website
  • By using the two cashless parking terminals at the northern entrance to Edinburgh Gateway building on City Campus or the southern entrance to Reg Vardy Centre on Sir Tom Cowie Campus at St Peter's.
