Car Parking Policy
The College has a very generous level of car parking around most of its buildings and for the majority of the time this is more than adequate to cope with all the parking demand. In November 2004 Oxford City Council introduced The North Oxford Controlled Parking Zone and this restricted parking in the majority of the roads around the College. With the increased number of students with cars, pressure on the available spaces will increase and a clear policy is required to ensure all members of the College fully understand parking restrictions.
This document states the College car parking policy for all sites. The policy applies to all road users including motorists, motor-cyclists and cyclists and all road users must comply with the current Road Traffic Act whilst on College owned or leased land. All members of the College, staff and visitors are required to comply with the Colleges regulations of which the College car parking policy forms part.
3.0 Policy Statement
The College does not guarantee parking facilities to any members of the College, staff or visitors to the College, unless they are driving a College-owned or College-leased vehicle. All spaces are on a first come first served basis. Vehicles may only be parked on the College premises when on official College business.
Users of the College car parks do so at their own risk and Wolfson College cannot accept liability for accident, loss or damage to the vehicle (or to the contents of the vehicle) howsoever caused. Granting of permission to park by an officer of the College does not constitute any admission of liability.
All members of the College and staff must display a current parking permit.
4.0 Parking Permits
The College operates a system of parking permits for Fellows, Students, Staff, Members of Common Room and visitors. Parking permits allow quick and easy identification of vehicles and allow College staff to contact owners if required.
Parking permits are issued in the following colours
Permit Type Colour Fellows Green; Main Building, Robin Gandy and M Block & Catherine Marriott Building Yellow; Annex, Garford Road, 21, 23, 25, 31 Linton Road, 14 and 16 Chadlington Road Orange; Common Room and Graduate Students (non-resident) Pink; Staff Blue.
All Fellows will be issued with a parking permit on request and completion of a permit application form and are entitled to park in all areas of the College excluding the under ground parking on the main site (unless the Fellow is a resident). Fellows are requested to use the South car park at all times unless this is full then the West car park should be used.
4.2 Residents (Students and Others)
All resident students are entitled to apply for a parking permit. All vehicles parked on College ground must be road legal at all times and proof of vehicle registration, current MOT certificate and Certificate of Insurance may be requested along with a completed permit application form before a permit is issued. Any resident changing their vehicle must apply for a replacement permit. This will be issued on surrender of the old permit and, if requested, the new vehicle documentation should be produced.
For residents in the Main Building, Robin Gandy, M Block and Catherine Marriott Building permits are issued for the underground car parks along with a car park key for which a deposit and fee are charged.
For residents in The Annex, Garford Road, 21, 23, 25, 31 Linton Road, 14 and 16 Chadlington Road permits allow residents cars to be parked only in the grounds of the accommodation in which they live.
4.3 Graduate Students (non-resident) and Members of Common Room
All non-resident graduate students and Members of Common Room will be issued with a parking permit on request. Proof of vehicle registration, current MOT certificate and Certificate of Insurance may be requested, along with a completed permit application form, before a permit is issued. Parking is only permitted when on official College business.
All full and part-time college staff will be issued with a parking permit on completion of a permit application form. Temporary staff will be issued with a temporary parking permit to cover the length of contract. Students working at the College are not entitled to apply for staff parking permit but can apply for student parking permit as described in 4.1 or 4.2. Staff are required to use the South car park or, if this is full, the North car park.
4.5 Visitors and Conference Visitors
Visitors should use the West car park. Only when this is full they should use the South car park. Conference visitors may park up to six cars per conference. If a conference wishes to bring more cars in to the College this must be by special arrangement with the Events & Conference Manager.
Contractors must report to the Lodge on arrival at the College and will be issued with a Contractors Parking Permit. Permits are normally issued on a daily basis unless exceptional circumstances apply. Contractors are normally required to park in the North car park unless this is not practical due to the location of the contractors work.
5.0 Leaving vehicle on College premises
No vehicles are permitted to remain parked in the North, South or West Car Park overnight unless they are visitors staying in College guest room accommodation and displaying the Guest Room Parking Permit or unless special permission has been granted by the Home Bursar or College Officer.
The College reserves the right to make charges for car parking and to increase these charges or implement charges in areas that are currently free of charge at any time with one (1) months notice.
7.0 Motorcycles and bicycles
Motor-cycles All members of the College may park motor-cycles on the College sites free of charge during the day. Residents wiht motor-cycles must have a garage space and be registered with the Accommodation Office. Permits do not need to be displayed.
Bicycles Bicycles may be parked free of charge, provided they are parked in the cycle areas provided and carry the correct colour string (colour changes every year) issued from the Lodge or Accommodation Office.
The College reserves the right to chain or remove motor-cycles or bicycles parked in breach of these requirements and owners may have to wait for release.
8.0 Parking for persons registered disabled
The College provides two parking spaces marked disabled only. These are located in the West Car Park and in the South Car Park. These may only be used by persons who are registered with the local authority as disabled and are blue badge holders. Temporary permission may be given at the discretion of the Home Bursar to allow members of the College to use disabled only parking spaces for short term medical conditions.
9.0 Restricted Parking
No Fellow, student (resident or otherwise), member of staff or common room is permitted to park in spaces marked for persons with a disability (unless displaying a blue badge), on double yellow lines, on grass verges, in spaces marked reserved, double parked across other parked cars or any other area that may prove to be a hazard or is considered to be a hazard by the Home Bursar.
10.0 Warning Stickers
Illegally parked cars or cars failing to display a current parking permit will have a warning notice attached. In the first instance these will be easily removable non-adhesive notices and will generally be placed on the windscreen of the vehicle. If it is necessary to attach further warning notices these will be self adhesive stickers and will require wetting to remove. These will be placed in such away so as not to obstruct the drivers view.
Please drive slowly (5 mph maximum) and safely around the college site at all time.
12.0 Locking of the gates to the South car park
The gates to the South car park are locked every night from 11.00pm until 7.00am. Vehicles left in this car park will be locked in if not removed by 11.00pm and will not be released until 7.00am. The College reserves the right to lock these gates at any other time without notice. There is no public right of way through any of the College buildings or cross the footbridge or any of the College land, with the exception of the marked footpath around the meadows.

Due to the tireless work of musicologists such as Anna Beer, a rich legacy of music by women has been, and continues to be, unearthed. The tide is, however, beginning to turn and we are hearing more female composers. But how can we, indeed how should we, write these composers' lives?
