Parking: 'Pay and Display'


'Pay and 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 (see below). Overstaying the time displayed on the ticket may result in a Parking Charge Notice being issued (see our regulations page). If you have a valid University permit, you can display that instead of a 'pay and display' ticket.

You can see the locations of our 'pay and display' car parks on our Where to park page.

Pay machines only accept the correct change. Sorry for any inconvenience this may cause you.

'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. They’re priced at £50 for a book of 10 scratch cards, reduced to £45.00 (10% discount) if you pay with your Eating at Warwick card. Each card offers a full day’s parking in any 'pay and display' space on campus (excluding the Sports Hub car park).

The 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 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). 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. Cards are transferrable between car parks on the same day.
