Students and staff will need a University of Kent parking permit to park here on site.

University staff and students are allocated a certain number of parking spaces here which is in line with the University’s lease arrangements.

To ensure the number of Kent vehicles at the Historic Dockyard remains within this allocation, a permit system has been introduced.

These permits will be available to students via the Medway parking ballot.
