Parking is 16p per hour for registered vehicles is payable via the ParkSmart App (see below). There is a minimum stay charge of £0.64p.
A new cashless payment system is in place for those who choose to pay each time they visit. You pay for your parking online instead of at machines. This new system improves safety and offers a simplified way to pay for your parking. Payment for parking is operated via our partner company Parksmart.
To use our cashless parking system, you will either need to download the Parksmart app or log on via a web browser to make your payment. It is important you sign into the app by selecting the 'Single Sign On' option. You will be redirected to a University web page and prompted to use your @essex.ac.uk email address.
