Staff holding a valid permit can charge their private electric vehicle in the Amenities Building car park at Old Road Campus. Please note that only vehicles with an E-permit will be eligible to park in a space with an electric vehicle charge point. To obtain this, please add '(E)' at the end of your vehicle registration number if your car is a plug-in electric vehicle when you are applying for a parking permit.
There are spaces for 8 cars to be charged at 7kWh on level P0A and for 2 cars in possession of a blue badge permit on level P1A. To use the charge points you must have an account with the POLAR network and have a POLAR RFID card. To charge your vehicle:
