The Orange Zone car parks at the University of Leeds are open to the general public on evenings after 17.00 (Monday – Friday), weekends, bank holidays and when the University is closed. Use of the car park is restricted to University staff and official pre-booked visitors during core parking hours (Monday – Friday 07.00 – 17.00). Please see below for details regarding bookings for official visitor parking.
Department Visitor Parking
During core parking hours – (07:00-17:00, Monday to Friday)
To avoid disappointment, visitor parking must be pre-booked by a University staff member. Bookings by host departments should be made using the online permit system. Visitors who are to pay for their own parking should obtain a code form the barrier at the main entrance on Woodhouse Lane. The code can be used to on any of the pay machines located on level 1 of the multi storey and in The Edge car park. Payment is made before exiting, not on arrival. Visitors do not need to display a permit in their windscreen as the ANPR cameras will verify their booking.
To make a booking:
- You must first register your details on the system (if you have not already done so).
- Click on the Register button from the main home screen and confirm your personal details and vehicle registration information.
- Once you have registered your details, you can now book a visitor permit. Click on the Apply for a Permit button from the main home screen and select the Visitor option.
More details are available in our step-by-step guide for visitor parking.

Methods of Payment
Car parking on campus can be paid at the payment machines located in the Multi Storey Car Park and The Edge car park in Orange Zone.
All contractors’ official vehicles used for deliveries and offloading heavy equipment must report to the car parking attendant at the main Woodhouse Lane barrier to obtain a short stay pass. This is free of charge and allows up to 40 minutes on campus.
Except for loading or unloading heavy equipment contractors must not park in restricted areas marked by double yellow lines or hatching. These areas must be kept clear for health and safety purposes.
Contractors requiring daily parking or for longer periods should contact the department they are working for to arrange parking. Contractor vehicles are permitted to park in the main visitor car park area known as Orange Zone. In exceptional circumstances, a contractor vehicle may be permitted to park in a different zone close to the works being carried out. Any such applications should be raised with the Helpdesk when booking in advance of the date parking is required.
It is essential that the permit is clearly displayed in the vehicle with the mobile telephone number of the person working on site.
