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  • Expensive or out-of-date barrier systems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 you can focus on other issues.

Introducing ParkEV New

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.

The Parkingeye process

We take pride in our ability to understand our customers and the issues facing their specific site and sector.

Within the education sector, one of the major issues we run into is a need to move away from outdated or unreliable solutions. We provide powerful ANPR, permit, data and EV solutions that require minimal admin from your teams, giving them back precious time to focus elsewhere, streamlining your services and reducing operational stress.

Our tailored solutions for educational sites include:

  • ANPR cameras
  • Virtual permit system and digital permit management
  • Payment machines
  • Manual ticketing
  • Maximising revenue from permits
  • EV charging
  • Bay Enforcement to protect priority spaces such as blue badge bays
  • Data analytics to identify peaks and troughs
  • Flexible paperless permits to manage different zones/CPs

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.

Generating revenue

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.

Staff and student experience

Attracting the best talent and brightest minds to your campus means taking every part of someone’s interactions with your site into account. A positive parking experience, powered by reliable and powerful technology, helps to underpin a sense of quality on your site, not only removing a major source of complaints for your admin teams to deal with but also eliminating stress from a journey and helping staff and students arrive on site focused, ready to teach and willing to learn.

  • Our college is located in St Helens town centre where parking is limited and expensive. Prior to Parkingeye installing the new system, our staff struggled to park on site because the car parks were constantly full of unauthorised users. The Parkingeye team worked closely with us to understand our aims and requirements for our car park and provided us with all the tools we need to manage different types of permits and visitors on site, as well as installing and maintaining all of the equipment free of charge.
