As a student at Bath Spa, you’re only permitted to park on campus if your term-time residence is outside of the restricted postcode areas, if you’re a Blue Badge holder, or if we’ve agreed to provide a Student Permit due to exceptional circumstances.
Restricted postcode areas are BA1 1, BA1 2, BA1 3, BA2 3, BA2 9 and BA2 1HB. If you're eligible for a parking permit, you'll need to apply through the AppHub.
There are two types of permit to choose from:
Student Validation permit: £10 (one-off annual payment) followed by a £1 pay and display ticket each time you come to campus
Lump Sum permit: £120 (one-off annual payment), with no further payments required.
The type of permit you choose depends on how many times a week you'll be on campus. Once you've completed Registration you can apply for your permit, but we recommend that you wait until you get your timetable.
Parking is free for a week at the start of term, so you'll have time to apply and pay online. Permits are paperless and are activated once payment is made. After this time, you'll need to pay for your parking either via a permit or at the machines.
You can use the Justpark app to buy your validation ticket. The code to use varies by campus:
- Newton Park: 310150
- Sion Hill: 310130
- Locksbrook: 310132
Car share permits
Car share permits are available for students who share their car journey to the University with other Bath Spa University permit holders. Apply for your permit by email: email@example.com.
