Car parking for visitors

Pay and display car parking is permitted on the Streatham Campus excluding students who reside within EX1, EX2 and EX4 postcodes. Payment machines can be found at or close to each parking area. Charges apply between 08.00 and 18.00 hours, Monday to Friday, thereafter visitors/students may use any designated parking bay. A part of parking income will be used to support the University's Green Travel Plan.

Streatham Campus

Visitors may only park in car park C.  The location is marked on the Streatham Campus map.

Visitors must have a valid Pay By Phone session or a visitor hanging permit provided by the University. All other parking bays are for permit holders only from 08:00 -18:00.

Please note that parking spaces are limited, especially during term, and we encourage visitors to use public transport where possible. See Directions to the Streatham Campus.

St Luke’s Campus

Official visitors may park in any parking areas on the campus only if they have a visitor hanging permit provided by the University. Permits must be obtained in advance from the relevant School. Other visitors, without official permits will have to use the nearest public car park which is at The Triangle, off Heavitree Road (see Exeter city centre map).

The car park locations are marked on the St Luke’s Campus map.

Penryn campus

Like many university campuses, the Penryn Campus has limited car parking. As such, potential car park users are encouraged to use alternative, sustainable transport. You can find out more about travel, transport and parking on campus and around the Falmouth and Penryn areas on the Falmouth Exeter Plus website. The campus now operates an Automated Number Plate Recognition (ANPR) system in which you pay as you leave, with charges outlined below.

Truro campus

There are a limited number of ECEHH visitor parking spaces - permits need to be reserved in advance.

There is a paid car park at the hospital, but it's expensive and gets busy. It's very easy to use the Park & Ride, on the A390, before you reach Truro College from the A30. The Park & Ride bus goes about every ten minutes, and the bus comes through the hospital on the way into town or you can use the Park & Ride Treliske shuttle that just comes to the hospital.

Further information on travelling to the Truro campus can be found on the Cornwall Campuses website
