Some additional information about parking in university birmingham station, to cater to all your parking needs
There is no on-street parking at the university itself, which means there is no on-street parking near University Birmingham Station. Birmingham as a whole has a considerable number of on-street pay and display parking spaces, but not within most people’s walking distance of Birmingham University Station. Parking is free of charge and without time limit on any road with no yellow lines, no parking bays and no signs restricting parking.
There is no student parking at University Birmingham Station and very little at Birmingham University. Students who would like to apply for a parking space will need to either have a blue badge, live more than 10 miles away during term time, have dependents under the age of 11 living with them during term time and more than three miles from the university, or be registered as a carer to disabled family members at their permanent home address.
Visitors are discouraged from coming to the university by car, but may (often with difficulty) find a place at the North East multi-storey car park off Pritchatts Road, or at two other car parks on the same street – but most parking spaces are reserved for hotel guests, staff members and other residents.
That leaves Queen Elizabeth Hospital as the nearest car park and, while you can park there, the charge is £3.10 for the first hour, space is often limited, and you will be left with a considerable walk.
The solution offers itself: park elsewhere, for example in the substantial multi-storey car parking facilities at Birmingham New Street railway station, and catch a train to University Station.
Public transport in Birmingham is very good, with a network of local railway services operating out of Birmingham New Street Station and very good bus services covering the whole city.
Blue badge holders can park free of charge without a time limit at all on-street pay and display parking bays and in all council-owned (but not privately owned) off-road car parks. They can also park for up to three hours on yellow lines, as long as they are not obstructing vehicular or pedestrian traffic and no loading restrictions are in place.
There are controlled parking zones (CPZs) in central Birmingham in which preference is given to those with residence or business parking permits.
Apart from Christmas Day, charges apply as normal for most parking spaces on bank holidays.
Birmingham is the second biggest UK city in terms of population and there is a corresponding wealth of things to see and do. Parks are plentiful and the City of Birmingham Symphony Orchestra, Birmingham Royal Ballet, Birmingham Repertory Theatre, Barber Institute of Fine Arts and Library of Birmingham all enjoy a reputation stretching far beyond these shores.
