We have a very small number of spaces available that can be used for Students to park on site at Kedleston Road. These will only be available to students who can demonstrate an exceptional requirement to park on site. To be eligible you will fall into one of the following categories:

  1. You need a permit on medical grounds or are disabled but do not have a Blue Badge (You will need to provide evidence such as a Doctor’s Letter) If you are a Blue Badge holder click here
  2. You are more than 25 weeks Pregnant (We will need to see your MatB1)
  3. You are a Part Time Student and are studying around work or external commitments (We will check your status upon application. Part Time recovery students are not eligible)
  4. If you are full time and live more than 15 miles away during term time and either have children under the age of 11 and or have caring responsibilities (We will ask for evidence of your circumstances)

This permit allows you to park in the Student car park at Kedleston Road but you must still pay and display. Fines are issued if you do not pay and display as well as having a valid permit displayed.

Please note: Only Blue Badge Holders are permitted to park in marked disabled parking bays

From Monday 12th September 2016 you will not be allowed on site at Kedleston Road unless you are already displaying your permit. You will need to make alternative parking arrangements if you are collecting after that date. Please note you are allowed on site without a permit after 16.30


If you buy a Markeaton Park and Ride Permit instead the cost for comparison would be:

3 day Permit at £130 = £1.27 to park all day (3 days pay and display = £3.81 per week)

5 day Permit at £180 = £1.06 to park all day (5 days pay and display = £5.30 per week)
