University of Suffolk Car Parks

We manage high quality car parks, where parking is simple and where customers feel welcome, safe and assured.

Our Car Parks

To qualify for a University of Suffolk permit, you must be a staff member or a student. Find out more and apply for a permit.

If you are a visitor to the university, then please use one of the public pay and display car parks. The closest are Athena Hall or Duke Street. More information can be found on our car parks page.

Parking without a valid University of Suffolk permit may result in a Parking Charge Notice (PCN) being issued.

If you wish to roam between Athena Hall, University Car Park and The Wharf Car Park during one parking session, you will need to purchase a parking stay through the RingGo app.

Parking stays purchased from our Pay and Display machines will not be valid for roaming between these car parks.
