We encourage everyone coming to the University to use sustainable transport.
Visitors to the campus should note that at certain times, during semester, demand for car parking spaces may exceed supply. Visitors are therefore strongly encouraged to:
-Use the excellent public transport links to and from Stirling or Bridge of Allan or
-Walk from Stirling or Bridge of Allan to the University, getting some exercise and seeing the University's beautiful surroundings first hand
Parking for visitors
Pay & Display machines are in operation within all campus car parks and affect all who drive to and from, and park on, campus. Visitors should note the following:
Pay & Display only operates Monday – Friday, 9am-5pm during the University’s academic semesters.
Current semester dates can be found here.
Pay & Display rates are as follows:
Up to 1 hour – 50p
1 - 3 hours - £1.00
3 - 5 hours – £2.00
5+ hours - £3.00
Blue Badge holders are not required to Pay & Display.
Where vehicles do not have a ‘Pay & Display’ ticket displayed and/or are otherwise in breach of the University’s Traffic & Parking Regulations (e.g. parking on double yellow lines or in disabled bays), a Private Parking Notice (PPN) will be issued requiring a payment of £40 to the University. This will be reduced to £20, if paid within 14 days of the date of the notice. Failure to pay a PPN within 28 days will result in the vehicle being denied access to the campus at the main control barriers.
The University’s Traffic and Car Parking Regulations, along with a list of Car Parking FAQs can be accessed by clicking the relevant links below or by calling in person, at Cottrell Room 4Z2.
