We work closely with over 170 education sites throughout the UK, helping to transform their parking to not only improve safety and accessibility but also greatly improve the staff and student experience. We’ve worked with major universities including Warwick University, Leeds Beckett University and Manchester Metropolitan University as well as a number of schools and colleges across the country.
University, college and school car park management
Many educational sites rely on their own internal teams to manage security and parking. This can be a time-consuming task and especially difficult on larger multi-campus sites with multiple places to park. The size of some educational facilities makes them difficult to police and presents a number of issues, including:
- Over-subscribed car parks during term time
- Expensive or out-of-date barrier systems
- Unauthorised parking on site
- An increased number of student and staff parking permits
- Complexity managing lots of different user types – from students and staff to visitors and suppliers
- Demand for protected spaces
- Access to EV charging
We’re all too aware that when it comes to the educational sector, car park management is often at the bottom of the to-do list due to limited resources and funds. However, Parkingeye’s know-how helps to minimise stress so our clients can focus on other issues.
ParkEV is our way of supporting the necessary changes to EV infrastructure in the UK. Our solution uses Evology chargers, combined with specialist enforcement technology, that will transform the landscape of EV parking in the UK. With various charging options available we help the businesses we work with to adapt to ever-changing customer requirements, establish their EV offering, and protect their bays.

Common challenges for education
Reduce car park abuse
ANPR delivers the perfect balance of reliability, durability, and accuracy. Using cutting-edge ANPR cameras we log every single vehicle entering your site so we can we track who’s on your site at any point in time. Any unauthorised users or someone abusing the spaces on your car park will be issued with a Parking Charge Notice (PCN), this serves as a strong deterrent and helps keep your car park available for the staff and students who need it.Find out more
Any opportunities to generate additional revenue which can be reinvested back into your educational facilities need to be considered. We’re able to help you understand the demand for specific services on your car parks using our powerful data analytics and provide the blends of solutions that allow you to maximise the often-hidden revenue potential within your car park.Find out more
