About the parking permits staff and students can apply for to park at Easter Bush.
Car parking is available across the campus for staff, students, visitors and clients.
Car parking is carefully managed to ensure the campus is accessible and safe.
A parking management strategy has been prepared to ensure that those with the greatest need to travel to the campus by car are able to park.
Parking by permit only
In order to park in the campus car parks a valid permit must be purchased. Permit holders are able to park in any of the car parks, with the exception of dedicated visitor / client only parking areas.
The University of Edinburgh parking regulations apply at the campus. The regulations are enforced between 9am and 5pm Monday to Friday. You do not need a permit to park at the campus between 5pm and 9am or at the weekends.
Motorcycles do not require a permit to park at the campus. Dedicated motorcycle parking facilities are provided and should be used. Motorcyclists must not park in the car parking bays.
It is recognised that there may be occasions when a non-permit holder (someone who normally walks, cycles, takes public transport or car shares) needs to be able to bring their vehicle to the campus.
A limited number off floating permits will be available from the reception points of the main buildings. Use of the floating permits will of course be monitored as misuse will not be tolerated.
The floating permits must be displayed clearly on the windscreen of the vehicle.
Tripshare is the University of Edinburgh's car share scheme. Parking permit applicants who register with Tripshare and form a car sharing group with colleagues (known as a BUDi Group) will increase their chances of being eligible for a permit.
This is because car sharing can significantly reduce demand for car parking spaces.
A BUDi Group may only apply for one permit. A single parking permit may have up to five vehicles registered on it. This means that you can if you wish alternate who drives each day if more than one member of the BUDi Group has a car. You must always display the permit regardless of which registered vehicle you use.
