Parking on campus
You must have a parking permit to park on campus. If you don't have a parking permit, our Automatic Number Plate Recognition (ANPR) cameras will know, and you might get a Penalty Charge Notice.
Students who live on campus in Halls, or live closer than 1.5 miles of campus are not eligible for parking permits, apart from residents at Kingswood who can apply for a permit to park at Kingswood Hall only.
If you do live more than 1.5 miles away from campus, or if you have a particular disability or medical condition, you might be able to apply for a parking permit.
Motorbikes and scooters must be registered via the Parking Permit Portal but are not required to display a permit. They must be parked correctly in a designated motorcycle parking area, or if spaces are unavailable in general then park in car parking bays in the appropriate car parks.

The vast majority of taxis are safe, but you may want to take a few precautions, especially if you're travelling alone. For example, have your money ready before you reach your destination, get out of the cab and then pay the driver. When booking a cab you can also ask what sort of car will be collecting you. For journeys out of Egham, it is advisable to agree a price with the cab firm before you depart and share your journey with a friend if possible.
