Car Park Management for Educational Sites

School, college & university parking solutions

University, college and school car park management

A good number of colleges, universities and other educational facilities across the country are managed in-house by their own security staff, which can be a time-consuming, difficult-to-police task due to their size. On top of this, a number of other common issues often present themselves, including:

  • Over-subscribed car parks during term time
  • Expensive or out-of-date barrier systems
  • Misuse and abuse
  • An increased number of student and staff parking permits
  • Complexity managing lots of different user types – from students and staff to visitors and suppliers

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 resource and funds. However, ParkingEye’s know-how helps to minimise stress so our clients can focus on other issues.

Our bespoke car park management service includes permit management, the installation and maintenance of equipment and on-going enforcement of the site’s parking rules. With hundreds of sites under our management, we serve a number of the UK’s top universities, including the University of Oxford, Manchester Metropolitan University, and Warwick University, while colleges, schools and nurseries also benefit from our expertise.

The ParkingEye process

When we sit down with a client to discuss their issues, it’s important that we find out how their site is currently managed, and what they aim to achieve with a new system in place. It’s often the case that the system they currently have in place is outdated and unreliable; our innovative ANPR car park management system allows for extensive management of the entire estate.

Our tailored solutions for educational sites include:

  • ANPR cameras
  • Virtual permit system and digital permit management
  • Payment machines
  • Manual ticketing
  • Maximising revenue from permits
  • Data analytics to identify peaks and troughs
  • Flexible paperless permits to manage different zones/CPs

Going live with ParkingEye

After fully inspecting the site and understanding the client’s aims, we’ll talk through our proposed solutions, after which we’ll draw up a communication plan, so all students and staff are informed of the new system.

Once everything is installed and BPA-approved signage is put in place, your site is good to go and ready to be used in the manner intended.

We’re also an approved provider of the new Car Park & Infrastructure framework as part of the NHS Shared Business Services Framework, helping your car park oversee improved throughput and profitability.

This allows you to save valuable time and money due to a reduction in the often-lengthy procurement process, the while complying with OJEU regulations – giving you 100% confidence that you are receiving best-in-class solutions.
