Parking and reservation of parking spaces

The University of Oulu has parking spaces in Linnanmaa and Kontinkangas campuses, Teacher Training School and Koskela office. University staff, students, partners and service providers can apply for parking spaces for their use through the Eparking app. Time-limited parking spaces and parking spaces subject to a charge are available for visitors for short-term parking.

Parking for students and service providers

The Linnanmaa and Kontinkangas campus areas do not have completely free parking areas, but using the parking area requires either registering as a user of your own organization's parking area (so-called cold parking areas without heating poles) or claiming the right to use your own organization's paid parking area (heating pole and electric car charging areas).

There are different organizations in the campus area, each of which has its own parking area. It is not allowed to reserve the right to use the parking area from an organization other than your own. More detailed instructions on how to apply for the right to use the parking area can be found on this page under "Booking a parking space at the university".

Paid and time-limited guest parking spaces are primarily intended for the parking of visitors at the Linnanmaa campus.

Visitor parking

In the Linnanmaa campus, there are time-limited parking spaces available for visitors. In addition, Linnanmaa has 64 paid customer parking spaces marked with separate signs in connection with five different parking areas. Furthermore, all of the university's unheated parking spaces on the Linnanmaa campus serve as paid customer parking spaces. Payment for customer parking spaces is via eParking, EasyPark or ParkMan apps. The short-term parking permit may be also be booked beforehand through these systems. On the Kontinkangas campus, the university does not have separate guest parking spaces.

Short-term parking is subject to charge on weekdays between 8:00 am and 4:00 pm. The price of short-term parking is €1/h + the fee charged by the operator but no more than €5/day + the fee charged by the operator.

Booking a parking space at the university

Use of unheated parking spaces is free, but requires registration as a user. Registration does not guarantee that there are free unheated parking spaces available.

You may apply for a permit for a parking space with a heating outlet for the parking area you desire. In your application you must justify your need for a parking space. Applicants will receive confirmation of their parking space permit by e-mail. You can only park your car and use the heating pole in the area for which the permit has been issued.
