E-scooter announcement

We’re disappointed to inform our community that the e-scooter trial scheme on campus has come to an end.

The scheme, which has been operated by VOI over the last few years, has been popular with students and staff, providing a sustainable and convenient form of transport.

The West Midlands Combined Authority bike hire schemeLink opens in a new window continues to offer a green and convenient form of transport for our community. We will continue to explore other sustainable transport options in future, including any new partnerships which support the use of e-scooters in the region and on campus.


Privately owned e-scooters are not allowed on campus as they are not road legal and therefore prohibited to be used, stored and/or charged within the confines of the University.

As bicycles and non e-scooters increase in popularity it is important that you:

  • are mindful of others when travelling on campus
  • walk with your bicycle / non e-scooter when close to the vicinity of halls in order to minimise the risk of collision with pedestrians or other users of the residential pathways
  • take care when parking or storing your bicycle or non e-scooter and ensure that it doesn't create a hazard for evacuation of an area in the event of an emergency
  • Skateboards, roller blades, etc are not allowed in the vicinity of halls.
