There are a limited number of car parking spaces available to students studying at our Burnley Campus.

To manage the space available on campus, parking permits for students are offered on a semester-by-semester basis to those meeting one of a set of criteria. Currently, this includes those with a declared mobility issue, those with childcare commitments and students whose daily commute to campus is over one hour. For further advice please email the Car Parking Team.

Burnley town centre has a number of car parks which students can use on a pay and display basis.
