Update on campus car parking for Trimester 2

After carrying out a review of our car parking capacity across all campuses, we're pleased to announce free parking provision for students in Trimester 2.

A limited number of temporary parking permits will be made available free of charge across our Sighthill and Craiglockhart campuses. If you do not have a temporary parking permit for the campus you’re parking in, you must apply for one by downloading a car parking application form and emailing it to

No additional permits are being made available for Merchiston at this time, but if you have a temporary permit already, it will remain valid and free of charge.

UKPC will be patrolling all our car parks, so you must make sure you have a temporary permit in place before you begin using the car parks. If you already have a temporary permit, you do not need to reapply, but please make sure your vehicle details are up to date. Please only email if you are updating the vehicle details.

All permits are now checked via your car registration details, so there is no need to display any old permits.

We will continue to monitor demand throughout Trimester 2 and readjust if necessary, so please remember that temporary permits may be reviewed. We will let you know the full details of any changes as and when they happen.

If you have any further questions or would like to update your vehicle details, please email
