Free parking ends on 31 October 2021 and your Temporary Permission to Park (TPTP) permit will no longer be valid. From 1 November, staff will require a new permit to park on University property. Visit University Parking Permits to apply for a new parking permit.
Any parking permit issued by the University only gives you the right to hunt for a parking space. It does not give you the right to use a particular space and does not guarantee that a space is available. You cannot use your permit for on-street parking on the public highway.
To ensure permits are issued by 1 November, departments must approve applications from their staff by 1 October. Please speak to your departmental permit administrator for advice on any internal application deadlines for your department.
What is the TPTP permit?
A TPTP permit gives you the right to ‘hunt’ for a parking space, it does not give you the right to use a particular space and does not guarantee that a space is available. Also, you can’t use your permit for street parking.
To apply for a TPTP parking permit, you will need an account on the University’s Planon system. If you already use FM Helpdesk or FacilityNet to order services like catering or room booking, you can use your existing login. If you need help contact the Planon Systems team.
When applying for a TPTP permit, make sure that you select the nominated car parking administrator for your department. Otherwise, your application may be delayed.
Successful applicants will automatically be subscribed to the Temporary Permission To Park mailing list in order to receive updates on where they should park and the availability on different sites. If your application is rejected you will need to contact your departmental administrator for further information. The head of department will make a final decision, but if you are not happy with this, you may then appeal to the Car Parking Working Group. Contact the Sustainable Transport Officer if you want to do this.
Types of permit
Under the temporary arrangements, there are just two types of peak permit valid for parking at all University sites within the Oxford ring-road: the University Disabled Permit (Blue Badge) and TPTP permit.
We are once again able to issue off-peak parking permits to University Staff for private use. These can be purchased for £40 (non-refundable). For further details and a link to the application form, please see the off-peak section below.
If you need to park at off-peak times for work purposes you should apply via the TPTP form and select the option ‘out-of-hours required.’
If you want to park at one of the hospital sites, you will need to email the Oxford University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust.
