Parking at student residences


Car parks at student residences are managed by the permit system. This ensures that car parks are only used by those who live on, work at and visit the site. Permits therefore need to be displayed by all users of the site.

Permit types

There are two types of permit at student residences: Category R (Staff) and Category R (Student).

Students… Are you insured? If you have not informed your insurance company that you intend to bring your vehicle to University of Sheffield you may not be insured, this may also affect your insurance premiums.

Please ensure that you have valid insurance cover before bringing your vehicle to Sheffield and applying for a permit.
