Derby staff parking

We encourage all staff to firstly consider alternatives to driving to work. In particular, we offer a frequent, all year round, free Unibus for staff that connects Derby Station, Derby Bus Station and all University sites.

If you do have to drive and require to park your car on site, then please fill out the Staff Parking Permit Application (terms and conditions apply), your permit can be collected from Kedleston Road reception five working days after submitting your application. If you are a temporary member of staff, please email for a permit application.

If you have changed your vehicle and need to update your permit details, please fill out our change of details form this can be collected from KR reception five working days after you submit your application.

If you are driving, please consider car sharing - even just once a week saves 10% on your fuel costs.

We have a limited amount of parking space on site for our staff and students and would appreciate if it's only taken by those who really need it. 

Permit costs

Permits cost 0.35% of salary. So, someone earning a salary of £20,000 would pay £70 a year, someone earning £40,000 would pay £140 a year.

Parking rebates

We recognise that a lot of people can use alternatives to the car a lot of the time, but perhaps not all the time. As an incentive people who park on site for less than 100 days a year (pro-rata), can claim a rebate for some of their parking fee. The fewer times you park on site, the greater the potential rebate.

You can apply in September for the previous academic year. This is announced on the staff intranet.

NB Parking rebates only apply to Kedleston Road or Britannia Mill/Markeaton Street permits.
