Travelling to work

Staff car parking

There is parking available at all University sites although this can be limited. Staff are able to purchase parking permits (although for certain campuses criteria must be met). From 2008/09 staff car parking permits are only available through salary exchange, unless you meet one of a few exemptions.

Further details about car parking for staff on the Exeter campuses and obtaining parking permits, visit the Staff car parking pages.

To promote our sustainable travel agenda the University has joined the car lift sharing website which is available throughout Devon and Cornwall. Further information can be found at Car Share Devon and Car Share Cornwall.
