Electric Vehicle charging facilities

The University has eleven twin 7KW Chargemaster electric vehicle charging posts available for staff and one twin charging post for visitors.  

You can view the charging posts across campus on the Map of Charging Points

Please follow the tabs to the right for information on charging for OU Staff and Visitors.

EV Charging bays

The electric charging bays are denoted with a green ‘E’ and signage.  Near most of the charging posts there are additional bays next to each charging post where users may park their vehicles whilst waiting for the post to become available for charging. They are not available for general parking. 

Once your electric vehicle has charged you will need to move it to a normal parking space in order to avoid the imposition of a fixed parking charge notice.   Anyone who uses these for general parking will be in breach of the University car parking regulations and risk the imposition of a fixed parking charge notice. 

For further information please visit thel car parking regulations
