Car parking: Electric vehicles

Important Notice

The University is out to tender for an EV parking solution provider. Existing EV parking processes may change once a supplier has been awarded with a contract; please select the "notify" button at the top right side of the webpage for any updates.

The maximum allocation for ChargeMaster RFID cards has been provided. If you have made a previous submission and have not received a card you will be notified when this is ready for collection. We will no longer be able to issue any more RFID cards to new applicants pending the outcome of the University tender for a single EV charging provider.

We want to support the growing number of people who use energy-efficient electric vehicles. That’s why we provide free electricity in our charging points within 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 trialling various chargers.

Kirby Corner Car Park

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 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. Please note we have reached our allocation of RFID cards, however if you do not have smart device we may supply you with an RFID card under exceptional circumstances.
  • 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 Plug in and follow the instructions on screen.


University staff and students may utilise our units which are operated by BP ChargeMaster. As these units operate on a private network to provide free electricity (parking tariffs apply), you must apply for a BP ChargeMaster RFID card by completing the form hereLink opens in a new window. units

We have 3 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 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 (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 units elsewhere. For more information, see
