On the 15th October 2004, Údarás na hOllscoile approved a parking management system intended to facilitate staff, students and invited visitors to the University Campus to park in an orderly fashion on campus and to maximise site parking efficiency. Part of this system includes the intention to issue a parking permit for the vehicles of staff working on the main campus, Earls Island and Nun’s Island. Updates to the system announced by the Vice President for Capital Projects on 8th January 2010 were intended to clarify these categories and describe a ‘mobility management charge’ for all those holding or applying for NUI Galway parking permits.
