Parking spaces and charge points

Electric cars

There are 12 parking spaces on campus for electric cars. There are six in the East Car Park, and six more in West Car Park.

Each space has access to a 7KW Mennekes socket charging point. You must charge your vehicle while parking in these spaces.

East Car Park

All six spaces are reserved for electric vehicle charging at all times. Other vehicles may not park in these spaces at any time.

West Car Park

Two spaces are reserved for electric vehicle charging at all times. Other vehicles may not park in these spaces at any time.

Four of the spaces in West Car Park are reserved for electric vehicle charging until 10.30am, after which they become available to any permit holder.

Confirm your charge with POD Point

When you park at an electric vehicle charge point, you must confirm your charge within 15 minutes of plugging into the unit.

Use the POD Point service to confirm your charge:

If you're a student or member of staff, you should use your bath.ac.uk username when you sign up to POD Point.

Electric motorbikes and scooters

There are charging points for electrically-powered motorcycles and scooters in the Underdeck. The small grey boxes are at the Wessex House end of the Underdeck. You can use any of these points during the day.

Electric vehicle parking permits

If you drive an electric vehicle, you may be able to apply for an electric vehicle parking permit:

Pay and display tickets

If you don't have a parking permit, you must buy a pay and display ticket from one of the machines in the car park to use the charging points.

This ticket will only be valid in these allocated spaces if the vehicle is plugged in and charging.

Invited departmental visitors should contact the department they are visiting in advance to get a valid permit for these spaces.
