Parking at the University
Anyone who parks in the University’s parking spaces must have a valid digital parking permit. Parking in reserved spaces also requires a separate digital parking permit which is managed by the unit that has use of the reserved space. Parking inspections of the University’s parking spaces take place 24/7. From 01.01.2021 all reserved spaces for units will be removed and paid parking will be introduced at UiB.
Information about the parking scheme at UiB
On 28 November 2019, the University Board decided to change the parking scheme at UiB as part of the Climate Issue. This includes paid parking, removal of unit-reserved spaces and reducing the number of parking spaces.
The changes will take effect on 01.01.2021 - further information will be published closer to the implementation date.
All employee/students must have an electronic parking permits (new from 01.07.20).

Parking terms and conditions
The parking spaces at the University are based on a first come, first served basis. The parking spaces will be used in connection with the periods that employees and students are working and studying at the University. At the start of ordinary study/working days the spaces will be empty and then fill up on a first come, first served basis.
Overnight parking is not allowed and there is parking enforcement 24/7. Among other things, this means that employees and students who live in the area are not allowed to use the University parking spaces for parking that exceeds the usual working or studying day. Such needs must be resolved in other ways, for example via Bergen Municipality's scheme for zone parking.
The availability of parking at the University is extremely limited. If there are no spaces available then it is up to the driver to find other solutions at other locations.
Application for parking permits
Only employees and students with a valid employee number/student identity number can apply for a parking permit. The car registration number is recorded in the parking app so that it is allocated a digital parking permit and is identified by parking control.
If an unregistered car uses one of UiB’s parking spaces then a parking charge notice can be issued. It must therefore also be borne in mind that if, for example, you use different cars, have a rental car or have purchased a new car, you must make sure you obtain an electronic parking permit for a new registration number before parking. You can manage which car (registration number) you have a parking permit for in the parking app
Anyone using multiple registration numbers must be aware that you can only park one registered vehicle at a time.
It is only possible to order one parking product for the remainder of 2020 - there is a parking permit for free spaces for staff/students including electric car spaces and disabled spaces with duration from the order date until 31.12.20.

Employees and students with a valid electronic parking permit can park in spaces that do not have a separate reserved sign. Electronic parking permits are ordered in the app from Aimo Park after registering a mobile number in UiB's parking solution.
- Electric cars/Charging stations for electric cars (Electric car spaces)
Employees and students with a valid electronic parking permit and an electric car can park in spaces marked with Electric car/Charging station for electric cars. Note that spaces with charging stations for electric cars can only be used for as long as the vehicle is on charge.

Employees and students can park motorcycles/mopeds in MC spaces. No separate parking permit is required for MC spaces.
Motorcycles/mopeds must be placed in marked areas, not parked in elsewhere around the buildings.

Parking spaces have been allocated for company vehicles at UiB. Only service vehicles marked with UiB's logo or coat of arms can use these spaces. These cars are granted an electronic parking permit from the Department of Estate and Facilities Management (register with UiBhjelp).
Private cars used in service cannot use these spaces.
- Patient parking
- Reserved parking spaces for patients are allocated at the University Dental Clinic and Alrek health clouster (Årstadveien 19) and for participants in studies at the Research Unit for Health Studies (Årstadveien 21).
