Staff parking permit

Staff parking permits must now be purchased directly from the Online Store and can be paid by monthly payroll deductions, which will automatically renew each year until cancelled.

The permit application form is now available via the Online Store and has been amended to authorise continuous deductions, until cancelled. Alternatively, payment can be made in full with a Credit or Debit Card. Once you have completed the Online Store process you will receive a confirmation email and a “self-print” parking permit. Printing the permit is now your responsibility and it must be clearly displayed in the front windscreen of your vehicle.

For those who select the monthly payment option, continuous payments will be deducted from your salary and your annual parking permit will be automatically renewed each year, until cancelled. During the month of August, a link to the Online Store will be emailed to you and you will be asked to confirm your Car Registration details. On completion, a renewed “self-print” parking permit for the new academic year will be emailed to you. If you pay in full for an annual parking permit, you will receive an email the following August to remind you that your permit is due to expire. You will need to purchase a new parking permit directly from the Online Store.

To purchase a staff parking permit please visit the Liverpool Hope University Online Store.

The misuse of the “self-print” parking permit is seen as fraud and strictly forbidden. The University will invoke disciplinary procedures against any member of staff who misuses the parking permit.

His decision shall be final.
