Parking at the University of Hertfordshire
There is plenty of on-site parking at the University of Hertfordshire. Parking charges are applicable from the College Lane Campus on weekdays from 8am to 5:30pm, and at the de Havilland Campus on weekdays from 8am to 7pm. If you’re coming into the university for an even, there may be specific parking arrangements in place. Contact your event organiser to find out more.
If you have registered to attend an open day, the university will send you a reminder email one week in advance. This email will contain specific information about the parking for this event, so be sure to refer to this before arriving.
If you’re a student or staff, you can park on campus, or you can use the park and ride service just off junction 2 of the A1(M). You don’t need an e-permit for this, but you’ll have to buy a ticket for the shuttle bus, which costs £1 per day per vehicle.
For students, if you want to park on campus, you can park without an e-permit in the multi-storey car park beside the Forum. The first 30 minutes of parking here will be free, then up to 5 hours of parking will cost £3, and anything over 5 hours of parking will cost £5. If you have an e-permit you can park in green or orange parking zones for a daily cost of £3. You don’t need a permit to park on bank holidays, or when the university is closed, or outside of charging hours. As long as you register your motorcycle with the university, you can park for free on campus.
Staff will need an e-permit to park on campus. You can choose to pay the daily cost of £3, or pay for an annual permit via deductions from your salary or an upfront online payment. Staff can park in the blue, green, and orange parking zones.
