Parking: 'Pay and Display'

Temporary suspension of parking charges

Following the decision to leave only critical staff remaining on Campus, and the move to working from home for the majority of members, it has been agreed to suspend charges for parking, including the use of 'Flexi-pay' scratch cards whilst the current exceptional situation remains in force.


    'Pay & Display' facilities are available to all staff, students and visitors to campus - all you need to do is find a space and park. You must buy a ticket for the required time period from the pay station and display it in your vehicle, or display a 'flexi-pay' scratch card. Overstaying the time displayed on the ticket may result in a Parking Charge Notice being issued (see our regulations page).

    You can see the locations of our 'Pay & Display' car parks opposite.

      'Flexi-pay' scratch cards

      For your convenience, we sell 'Flexi-Pay' scratch cards at Senate House Accommodation Reception, Gibbet Hill Cafe and University House Cafe.

      From 1 October 2019, Flexi-Pay scratch cards are priced at £55 for a book of 10 scratch cards, reduced to £49.50 (10% discount) if you pay with your Eating at Warwick card. They are valid in all car parks marked 'G' on the map, plus additional parking areas marked 'F' at Gibbet Hill campus only. Each card offers a full day’s parking in any 'pay and display' space on campus (excluding the Sports Hub car park).

      The scratch cards save you bringing the correct change with you every time you park, and, if you take advantage of the Eating at Warwick offer, they save you money too!

      When using the scratch cards, the normal restrictions still apply – parking in lined bays only, no parking in disabled bays without a valid permit, no parking in car share spaces before 10am (unless you’re part of the WarwickShare or 'Take a Mate' car sharing schemes, EV charging bays without a valid plug in vehicle and other restricted areas). If you park in a time-restricted, short stop space (like the ones at the top of Health Centre Road), you must not park for longer than the time limit specified. Each card is valid for one day only – you must scratch out the date you’re using it on and display it clearly on your dashboard. Scratch cards are transferrable between valid car parks on the same day.
