Parking at the University
All who use UiB parking space must have a valid parking permit. You can get your parking permit by registering in the UiB parking system and then downloading and registering in the Aimo Park Norway AS app. In order to park at a parking spot marked by a sign saying “reservert” you must have a special permit (whitelisting). Whenever you have obtained your parking permit, you may park at an UiB parking space and use the app to pay for the parking time.
The UiB parking areas are subject to parking surveillance and enforcement 24-7.
In addition to having a valid UiB parking permit, you must activate and pay the parking fee in the Aimo Park Norway App each time you park at a UiB parking space. This applies to both the student/employee parking spots and to reserved spots. MC parking spots and HC-spots are exempt from the parking fee.
How to apply for parking permits for the open parking spots at UiB
Only students and employees with a valid student/employee-number can apply for a parking permit.
- Open the UiB parking system (note that the system is in Norwegian and does not have an English translation).
- Open “Søknad om parkeringstillatelse - Registrering for bruk av parkeringsapp fra Aimo Park”
- Read and agree to the terms for parking at UiB.
- Register your phone number in the parking system. Then register in the parking app Aimo Park Norway AS.
- Download the app “Aimo Park Norway AS”. (Note: this app is not available on phones using Windows operating system. If you own a windows phone or want to register via a web-browser, please use https://qpark-permit.giantleap.no/#/parking/products/agreement).
Also see the Aimo user manual made especially for UiB.
- Open the app and create a user profile. You must register your phone number and payment information. Update the profile with your user information.
- Register the parking permit in the app.
- Choose “Andre produkter” (not “start parkering”).
- Choose location “Bergen”.
- Choose product “Bestill parkeringsavtale”.
- Order the parking agreement “Universitet i Bergen. Ansatte og studenter”.
- Choose between “Ansatt-parkering” (employee parking) or “Student-parkering” (student parking).
- Enter your car’s licence plate number (up to 3 different cars can be registered at the same time).
- Read and approve the parking terms.
- Finish by pressing “Kjøp”. (Note: some phones does not show the "kjøp" button, if this happens you must register on this webpage.
- Check the homepage in the app to make sure that the correct licence plates are registered.
If you are parking an unregistered car, you may be issued a parking ticket. This applies even if the parking fee is paid. If you acquire a new car, use a rental car, or borrow a car, you must ensure that the car is registered in the app before you park it at an UiB parking space. Also note that, while you may register up to 3 vehicles at the same time in the app, only one can make use of UiB parking spaces at the same time.
Do I have to update my parking permit?
You do not have to take any action to renew your parking permit as all UiB parking permits are automatically renewed each month.
The system checks if your phone number is still registered to an active UiB account, if not, the parking permit is removed automatically.
Note that Aimo Park occasionally sends out messages to their users asking them to renew their permits. UiB employees and student can safely ignore these.
Are you unsure whether you have a valid parking permit?
Employees and students must have a valid parking permit to make use of open parking spots at UiB. This includes spots for electric cars and handicap spots.
You can check the status of your parking permits in the parking app “Aimo Park Norway AS”. You will find a summary of valid parking permits, how long these will last, and the vehicle registration number connected to the permits at the App’s home screen.
Parking at specially reserved spots require a special parking permit (whitelisting), this is administered by the UiB unit that manages the spot.

Applying for a garage spot
If you want to lease space in one of the garages you must apply through our electronic application form (the form is in Norwegian).
The first deadline for applying for 2023 the 30.11.2022. Any applications that are received after that date will be considered if there are space left in the relevant garage. In the ordinary application period students and employees with children in kindergarten or 1st grade will be prioritized (this must be documented). Following the deadline, parking space will be assigned on a first come first served basis if space is available.
Emeriti may apply only after the deadline has passed and will be assigned a parking space if one is available.
The price to lease space in a UiB parking garage is 8000 NOK per year. Payment is due twice a year (4000 NOK each time), in December and June, and the first instalment must be paid before the leasing period begins.
The leasing period runs from 01.01.23 to 31.12.23.
It is not possible to apply for a shorter leasing period in the ordinary application round.
You may only cancel the lease every half year. The deadline for cancelling the lease is June 1st.
If you are assigned a spot after the ordinary application, but in the period 01.01 – 30.06, you will be charged for the full year. If you only lease a spot from 01.07 – 31.12, you only have to pay for half a year.
How to activate parking at Årstadveien 19
NOTE: when you park at Årstadveien 19, you must make sure to use sone 8591_6 if you use manual parking registration. We advice you to use an automatic payment subscription. See guide below on how to obtain a subscription.

- Or you enter and exit without registering or paying. You can then pay in the app or on the Aimo Park website within 48 hours.

Please note that when you exit with your car that automatically ends the parking period. It is therefore not possible to enter and exit the garage several times a day and still only pay one time.

How to get an automatic payment subscription:
- Start at the “home page” in the Aimo Park app. Press the button named “Aimo Park Easy”. It is located at the bottom left of the screen.
