Parking at Edge Hill can be a tricky one for new students and sometimes existing. Due to a lack of parking space available on and around campus parking permits are as rare as a sober first year in Alpine. With this in mind if you need to park and have a good reason to do so the university will try to accommodate you as much as possible. So here are 3 great tips to get your car in a space in or around the University.
Get a parking permit.
The best way to get your car near your classes is to register for an official EHU parking permit. These are rare because parking is so scarce on campus due to limited space. To get your permit you can fill out a form here: https://www.edgehill.ac.uk/services/parking/ . Be aware that you might not get one if you live close to the University.
Find parking in Ormskirk.
If you live in Ormskirk it may be possible to find on street parking outside your house. Usually streets are signposted with times that you can park on the road, however if you live on a ‘permit’ road you can, just like on campus, register for a permit here: https://www.westlancs.gov.uk/more/your-community/roads-and-travel/parking-permits.aspx . Again be aware that you might not qualify for a parking permit but it is worth a try. You can also try and find off street parking. Ormskirk Co-Op offers this for a set fee and you can find out more here: https://horizonparking.co.uk/ .
Car share or take the bus!
The only way to guarantee parking on campus every day is to book a car share parking space. With two people and two permits on display you are 100% sure to take a space on campus. Edge Hill is proud of its excellent transport links and offers a free bus service from Ormskirk town centre to both sides of the University. I would encourage all of you to consider taking the bus or other public transport to save on costs when trying to get to University. Parking is cool but trust me the bus is just easier.
Hopefully this blog answered all your questions about parking on campus. If you want to read more you can check out the university page here. The only other advice I can give you is this:
Don’t park on St. Helens road. You will be ticketed, clamped and possibly towed.
