Parking areas at UiA are indicated by public signs for parking – a black “P” on white background.
All ordinary and short-term parking spaces are subject to a parking fee. Read the signs and the information on the parking machines to see the what rates apply.
The maximum parking duration is 14 hours per day. If you leave the parking area after paying, you can return without paying a new parking fee within the 14 hours, assuming you have not cancelled your parking in the app and are parking in a space with the same rate as the one you left (see tables on the relevant campus parking pages).
The parking fee for the relevant parking area applies for every day of the week and at all hours of the day.
Parking is only allowed in marked spaces.
Electric cars must also pay the ordinary parking fees.
Motorcycles and mopeds have to park in separate motorcycles spaces near parking area P1 – in front of the main entrance at Campus Grimstad. At Campus Kristiansand motorcycles and mopeds can be parked in front of the bike parking area close to the main entrance. These spaces are not subject to a parking fee – i.e. they are free of charge.
More detailed answers to many of these questions can be found on the parking web pages “General information about parking at UiA” or on the respective pages for parking at Campus Grimstad or Campus Kristiansand.

Do I have to pay for parking in the evening/at night or on Saturdays/Sundays/public holidays?
Yes. The stated parking fee for the relevant parking area applies to all days and at all hours.
Where shall I send my complaint about the parking fine I got? To UiA, who receives the money, or to Apcoa, who operates the parking areas and system?
Are there regular rates for parking fines?
Yes. Fining is in accordance with the national parking regulations that came into force 1 January, 2017 with additional updates – see the government’s press release or the regulation on lovdata.no.
Can the parking areas for employees be used when going on a work trip and if you are away for several days?
Yes. Employees going on a work trip can park their cars for more than 14 hours/for longer periods on the parking areas reserved for employees as long as a the car has an active registration for (UiA-fordelsparkering) UiA benefit scheme in the Apcoa Flow-app.
How about when a group or a division is going on a work trip and park their cars on campus for several days, and the time of departure is so late that there are no more available parking spaces for employees?
Such trips are usually planned well in advance, so please contact email@example.com well in advance so we can together come up with good solutions.
If you have parked in one area and then leave, you are allowed to come back and park your car without paying a new parking fee. But do you have to park in the same area?
Yes – but not necessarily in the same parking area. But you must park in an area with the same code as where you first parked your car.
Example: In the morning, you park your car in P4 in front of Hokus Pokus kindergarten on Campus Kristiansand. Then you must leave for a trip to Campus Grimstad, and return after lunch and park in P1 – the main parking area. Both these areas have the same Apcoa code: 6848 – and when Apcoa scans license plates, there will not be any problems. The same applies if you park in P3 – the upper parking – on Campus Grimstad and return later to park your car in P2 – the car park. Same rate and same Apcoa code.
The parking area near the Natural Museum on Campus Kristiansand (P7) has its own Apcoa code, so it is not possible to park there and return to park in another parking areas or vice-versa. Most people will probably not want to park for long durations at these parking spaces with a NOK 20 per hour rate.
How much does it cost to use the app?
Apcoa (Europark): Registering and first-time usage adds an additional 1 NOK to the parking fee. Using the app afterwards does not add any additional charges.

UiA has facilitated the use of two apps to pay parking fees – Apcoa (former Europark) or Easy Park, which you can find in the App Store (iPhone) or Google Play Store (Android).

Here you find Apcoa's website. A separate UiA-agreement for employees who are parking on the two areas reserved for UiA employees. How to install the app and register your car(s), you will find in the next open/close-point "Apps for paying parking fee".

Employees at UiA have a limited number of free parking spaces at their disposal in separate parking areas.
At Campus Grimstad, employee parking is behind a gate that can only be opened with an employee card.
At Campus Kristiansand, two parking areas at the end of the road Universitetsveien are reserved for employees. An app is now the only valid parking solution. To access the employee car park, you must download the Apcoa Flow app on your phone or PC. See article on "Innaskjærs" - Parking app for staff at Campus Kristiansand. Once you have created a user and entered the plate number, you add ‘parking benefits’. You can find this by clicking the menu in the upper left corner, go to ‘colleges and universities’ and find the University of Agder. You must log in via Feide to confirm that you are employed at the university. Once you have registered, the registration is valid for one year, and does not have to be renewed every time. You can add several cars to the app, but only one car can be active at a time. If you switch between cars, you must remember to change cars in the app as well.
Cars parked in a manner that violates the parking rules will be fined, NOK 600 currently - or NOK 900 if the car is parked in a space reserved for movement-disabled with a parking permit.
UiA has engaged Apcoa as a controlling authority.
Apcoa fines violations of parking rules and is also the appellate authority.
Apcoa handles all cases about fines – meaning that all inquiries and complaints must go through Apcoa's systems. On Apcoa's website “About fines” you can also find out how to contact Apcoa's customer support centre.
Apcoa's controlling activity is performed for a set cost. Income from fines and parking go directly to UiA and is used to operate the parking facilities and for environmental efforts, cf. UiA Board’s resolution in item 101/16.
Electric cars must pay ordinary parking fees. This also applies when they are parked in a space with a charging station.
Mer Norway AS - former called Grønn kontakt - operates all the public charging points on campus.
Parking spaces with charging points are reserved for cars that are being charged. After charging, the vehicle must be removed or moved to an ordinary parking space.
UiA has parking spaces reserved for those who are movement-disabled. These spaces are indicated by HC symbols and signs.
For parking on a HC-marked space, an officially approved parking permit must be visible in the car’s windscreen or on its dashboard. Parking at UiA for those who are movement-disabled is regulated by the Regulation on parking permits for movement-disability.
Disabled parking is free of charge.
If you break your leg or become temporary movement-disabled in another manner, please contact at firstname.lastname@example.org to check if you can get a temporary permit to use disabled parking.
