Campus means any land or buildings under the control or ownership of the University, including land or buildings occupied by private individuals or companies whether as tenants or licensees.
Likely to cause an obstruction or danger means the positioning of a vehicle in a marked car park in a location not defined as a parking bay or the positioning of a vehicle in an unmarked parking area in a manner contrary to local signs or in a manner deemed by Security Staff to potentially limit the movement of other vehicles including access/egress of emergency service vehicles.
Controlled Hours means those hours during which barrier control is in use at all entrance access points.
1. All roads within any Campus come under the Road Traffic Acts and Police may be called to deal with any serious breaches of the Acts.
2. The maximum speed limit for vehicles within any Campus is 10 miles per hour and vehicles must at all times be driven in accordance with the Highway Code and with due care and consideration for all vehicular traffic, pedestrians, University property and wildlife. Drivers must treat pedestrian crossings on any Campus in the same way as those located off campus.
3. All users of vehicles on any Campus shall comply with traffic signs and notices which may be displayed either permanently or from time to time and with instructions from Security Officers or other employees having requisite authority.

5. Staff and eligible students wishing to park a vehicle on any Campus will be required to register their vehicle(s) and display a valid Permit for that year on the top or bottom right hand corner of the vehicle windscreen whenever the vehicle is driven or parked on the Campus. Permits denote a holder’s entitlement to gain vehicular access to the Campus but do not provide guaranteed access to a car parking space. Motorcyclists are required to register their vehicle but are not required to display a Permit.
6. Access to any Campus will be controlled throughout the calendar year by means of entry barriers at the main entrances. These barriers will be automatically operated to allow vehicles with a valid Permit onto Campus. Visitors who shall only be spending a limited time on campus will be issued with a temporary Visitor Permit which must be displayed in the vehicle windscreen.
8. All roads and parking areas within the University are private property and are provided at the Universities expense. Although every effort will be made within the resources available to provide convenient and secure parking facilities, the University cannot accept responsibility for the vehicles parked on the premises or their contents. Parking is at the owner or operators own risk.
Any damage caused by Staff/Student/Visitors parking on University premises must be reported, failure to do so may result in Staff/Student/Visitors being refused entry to park on University premises in the future.
Permits will be issued on application to members of staff, currently registered 1st year undergraduate students resident in Treforest campus accommodation, post graduate students employed by the University and other regular users.
Applicants must hold a full driving licence. Provisional licence holders are not
eligible to apply for a permit.
Staff, eligible students and other regular users may apply for a full charge Permit that will cover the full parking year with discounted charges being applied to certain users as follows:
No parking of caravans, mobile homes, vans, minibuses or similar vehicles is permitted without the special permission of the Property Services Manager Gareth Llewellyn (Gareth.firstname.lastname@example.org). Under no circumstances may such vehicles, when permitted to use the car park, be used for sleeping accommodation.
11. Permit Holders are prohibited from waiting or park in the following areas:
10. 1st year students resident on Treforest campus accommodation only, are permitted to bring a car onto campus and have to apply for a parking permit, on a first come first served basis (unless they are officially registered as Blue Badge holders).
Registered non-resident students will be entitled to park in any car park designated for general student use.
12. Any vehicle parked out of a specified parking space, on yellow lines, or in a car park for which the appropriate current Permit is not held, or in any manner likely to cause an obstruction or a danger to other users, will be noted and a warning sticker placed on the vehicle informing the owner that they have breached the University’s Traffic and Parking Regulations, (hereinafter referred to as The Regulations).
The Regulations are in force 24 hours per day, 365 days a year. After three warnings, you will receive and email informing that if there is a further breach of the Regulations within a 3 month period Directorate have agreed that your parking right can be withdrawn and you barrier pass suspended for a three month period.
13. Motor cycles, scooters and bicycles may not be ridden along University paths or in areas which are normally closed to private motor vehicles.
14. Any motor vehicle which, in the opinion of the University, is causing an obstruction or a safety hazard or is found to have been apparently abandoned within the University grounds will be liable to be removed. In cases of apparent abandonment, the University will take all reasonable steps to obtain the registered owner’s particulars, and if ownership is established, the owner will be requested in writing to have the vehicle removed within 28 days. Failure by the owner to do so will result in arrangements being made for its disposal. Any expenses incurred in the removal or by the abandonment or disposal of such a vehicle will be met by the registered owner.
15. In a case where ownership of any motor vehicle cannot be established the University reserves the right to dispose of the vehicle. In such circumstances the University will not be responsible for any damage whatsoever, which may result to the vehicle.
The benefits of the car sharing will be to:
All vehicles are parked on University sites at the owner’s risk and the University accepts no liability for the safety and security of such vehicles.
Most car crime is opportunist and you can put thieves off with vigilance and by taking the following simple precautions:
Security, patrol all areas of the University throughout the day and night and there is an extensive CCTV (with digital video recording) system for your safety. The incidence of car crime on Campus is extremely low.
To help maintain a safe University immediately report any suspicious persons or incidents to Security on (01443) 482057.
Disputes relating to these Regulations shall be referred in writing to the Property Services Manager Gareth Llewellyn (gareth.llewellyn) in the first instance. Where the dispute cannot be resolved by this route, the user may appeal in writing to the Director of Estates Stephen Godber (Stephen.email@example.com) whose decision shall be final.
In line with the University’s environmental policies and Green Travel Plan a Car Sharing scheme has been established in order to assist in reducing the volume of traffic visiting its campuses and to encourage a shift away from single occupancy vehicle journeys and to reduce the number of vehicles parking on campus.
The main benefits of joining the scheme are that members will pay a reduced annual parking fee; in addition members will be demonstratively supporting the University’s environmental policies.
