Red Car Parking Pass 

Coventry University may issue Red Car Parking Passes to the disabled students who did an individual assessment of their cases. The students who have been issued a Red Car Parking Pass from the disabilities office can park on any university car parking space for free no matter the staff or student car park. 


For a student to apply for the Red Car Parking Pass, they have to get a Disabled Blue Badge and submit a copy. The Pass is for the time they are at University as long as the Blue Badge is in date. They can park in any of the university car parks in the disabled spaces and need to display their Blue Badge and car park permit. There are forms for students to complete by email disoff.ss@coventry.ac.uk.
