Car parking: Electric vehicles

We want to support the growing number of people who use energy-efficient electric vehicles. That’s why we provide free charging points in several locations on campus.

As our infrastructure develops and demand for charging points increases, we intend to introduce more of them to the University, settling on a standard set of chargers, although in the meantime we are trialing various chargers.


Need to access a charging station?

If you drive an electric vehicle and would like to park it on campus, please get in touch with carparking at warwick dot ac dot uk to discuss your requirements.


Kirby Corner Car Park (Staff permit holders only) Available soon

New Smart EV Grandis charging units have been installed in Kirby Corner car park. 10 dual units are available: 2 in the row of disabled parking, with one space now reserved for EV charging only; and 9 dual units in the opposite parking row, with all 18 bays now reserved for EV charging only.

To use these units you’ll need to:

  • Register via smartev.cloud using a phone number (you need to type this in without ‘0’ ie 7788 112233), requesting access to KC-1. Once registered, you will be able to trigger charging via the website on your smart device, or order an RFID fob via the website which will be posted to you direct from the company.
  • Charging stations ready for use will display a blue light bar. Anything else and the unit is out of action and should be reported to carparking@warwick.ac.uk. Plug in and follow the instructions on screen.

Char.gy units

We have 3 Char.gy EV charging units on Westwood Campus, in the car park over the road from the Avon Building (as shown on our map).

To use these units you’ll need to:

  • Register with Char.gy online. The campus units are free to use, but you will need to register for a free plan, which does involve registering details of a valid debit or credit card.
  • Once you’ve parked, check the number on the unit you’re connected to, and visit char.gy/XXXXX (putting the number where the Xs are). Enter your details there, and the unit will start charging your vehicle.

Monthly plans are also available if you also intend to use char.gy units elsewhere. For more information, see char.gy.
