Electric vehicles

Charge your Electric Vehicle with over 70 charge points located across campus.

The University already has many spaces available for charging your electric vehicle, see Campus Map  The University Travel plan sets out clear targets to support the shift towards electric vehicles, and we will continue to incentivise this with the offer of upgraded charging facilities. All charging facilities are provided via the EVC app. Users must have an account to access the points.

We ask that once your charge has completed to please move your vehicle to allow others to utilise the charge points. Vehicles that blocks points for over an hour may be subject to additional charges.

From January 2024 users will be required to pay for charging their electric vehicles. The cost will be 32p/kWh Incl. VAT (This is the actual cost to LU to provide the electricity). It will be reviewed quarterly, and any changes will be communicated.
