New College Parking - FAQs

Register for your E-Parking Permit

Why are you introducing the scheme?

SGS College is introducing a managed parking service at its WISE, Filton and Stroud sites to bring it in line with many other Colleges and Universities.

The service is being introduced to reduce the number of cars on site and encourage users to consider more environmentally friendly forms of travel, in line with the City’s sustainable transport initiatives.

The College is committed to ensuring we have a safe parking environment for learners, staff and visitors. The new service will ensure parking facilities are managed so they are not overloaded beyond capacity, with non-users of the facilities and that responsible parking is adhered to.

Who is parking free for?

SGS College students, staff and pre-registered official visitors on bona-fide college business.

Who is expected to pay?
