1.1 The University allows the Permit Holder to access and use the Campuses and Car Parks in accordance with these Terms and Conditions, in return, the Permit Holder must abide by and perform the obligations under the Conditions and indemnify the University for any damage that the Permit Holder causes while in the Car Park.
1.2 The decision of the University to permit anyone to enter any Campus is final. In the case of Corsham Court, only Staff are permitted to park on campus (subject to these Terms and Conditions).
1.3 The Newton Park Campus is shown on Plan 1, Sion Hill Campus is shown on Plan 2 and Corsham Court is shown on Plan 3.
1.4 Vehicles must only be parked in designated parking spaces as shown in the Terms and Conditions Plans (see link below) or as otherwise clearly signed by the University, the only exception being Liveried Bath Spa University Vehicles in the exceptional circumstances set out in 6.1 below.
1.5 Motorcycles and scooters should be parked in designated motorcycle parking areas. They must not be parked on footpaths or other pedestrian areas unless otherwise agreed by the University.
1.6 If a driver has any doubt whether the location they propose to park is permitted, they should not park there until they have checked with Security or the attached plans to ascertain whether it is a valid parking space. A driver observing that another vehicle has been parked in a location, and has not received a PCN, should never assume parking in that location is acceptable.
1.7 Unless otherwise authorised by the University, all motor vehicles (with the exception of motorcycles/scooters and Liveried University vehicles) parked or loading/unloading on the Campuses must display a valid Bath Spa University Parking Permit, which can be a:
- Bath Spa University Disability Parking Permit
- Blue Badge disability permit with a Bath Spa Disability Parking Permit
- Staff Parking Permit
- Student Parking Permit
- Staff Validation Parking Permit with a Validation Ticket
- Student Validation Parking Permit with a Validation Ticket
- Corsham Court Validation Parking Permit with a Validation Ticket
- Authorised Visitor Parking Permit
- Staff Car Sharing Parking Permit
- Student Car Sharing Parking Permit
- Contractor Parking Permit
- Contractor Validation Parking Permit with a Validation Ticket
- Temporary Loading Bay Permit with a valid Bath Spa Parking Permit.
1.8 Motorcycles and scooters owners are required to apply for a valid permit so they are registered with the University; however it is not a requirement that permits are displayed on motorcycles or scooters.
1.9 A Validation Ticket is valid for any campus on the day of purchase if supported by an official Validation Permit (see paragraph 1.8 above). Validation Tickets can also be purchased through the JustPark App. For the avoidance of doubt, a Validation Ticket on its own (i.e. without a Validation Permit) does not constitute a valid permit allowing users to park on the campus.
1.10 A Corsham Court Validation Parking Permit is accepted at all sites where Pay and Display is in operation (Newton Park, Sion Hill, Corsham Court and Locksbrook Road). The parking area at Corsham Court in which these permits can be used is located behind the post office, where parking restrictions are enforced by Wiltshire County Council. Please be aware that a Corsham Court Validation Parking Permit must be accompanied by a Validation Ticket, which can be purchased from the pay and display machines in the car park. No other Validation Parking Permit (Student or Staff) will be accepted at Corsham Court.
1.11 Staff Permits are valid for use at any Campus (i.e. a Permit issued to Newton Park Staff is valid for use at Sion Hill, Corsham Court and Locksbrook Road, and vice versa).
1.12 Permits are paperless and will be monitored by our Automatic Number Plate Recognition (ANPR) system. Permit applications take 24 hours to activate on the ANPR system. For the avoidance of doubt, it is the driver's responsibility to ensure the permit is active – it is not the University's or the Parking Enforcement Officer's responsibility to check if a vehicle permit has been issued.
1.13 Students that live in University managed accommodation are not permitted to park or bring vehicles onto the Campuses at any time, unless they have been approved for a Disability Parking Permit / Special Circumstance.
1.14 Students that live in University postcode restricted areas (BA1-1, BA1-2, BA1-3, BA2-3 and BA2-9) are not permitted to park or bring vehicles onto the Campuses at any time unless they are a Disability Parking Permit holder, or the University has agreed to provide a Student Parking Permit due to exceptional circumstances.
1.15 Persons wishing to park a non-University liveried vehicle overnight must ensure the car has a valid permit, notify Security (contact details: Tel: 01225 875555 email: email@example.com) in writing or by email (giving a reasonable notice period and ensuring that confirmation of receipt by Security is obtained prior to the overnight parking), and provide vehicles details, including registration number, make, model, and colour of the vehicle. They must follow any instructions given by Security regarding where the vehicle should or should not be left.
1.16 The University does not guarantee access to individual bays nor does a permit guarantee the holder a parking space on campus. Parking on the Campuses is done so entirely at the owner's risk, the University accepts no responsibility for any theft of vehicles, or any loss from, or damage to vehicles parked on the Campuses. The University is not liable for personal injury or death other than that resulting out of the University’s negligence.
1.17 Persons parking on Campuses are requested to respect other drivers, adhere to signage, and park in designated bays while on Campuses.
1.18 The University may:
- reserve Bays for specific visitors by the use of name boards and when Bays are reserved, those Bays shall only be used by the named visitor while the board is displayed
- reserve Bays for parking associated with special events
- temporarily close Bays for works etc. through the use of appropriate signage
- Temporarily permit parking in areas where it is not normally permitted through the use of appropriate signage.
