The role of the Transport and Parking Office and the services it provides
The Transport and Parking Office is part of the Support Services Department within Estates and Buildings.
We are responsible for the management of University car parks within the Central Area, King's Buildings and the periphery, Easter Bush and Little France.
The University's Parking Regulations apply in these areas. Anyone wishing to park within these areas must display a valid parking permit. This includes staff, students, visitors and contractors.
We are responsible for the allocation of permits to park in University car parks, and for enforcing the University's Parking Regulations.
The car parks at the Western General and Royal Edinburgh Hospitals are not under the management of the Transport and Parking Office. These are managed by the NHS.
Car parking facilities at University student residences are managed by Accommodation Services.
