Parking at Griffith campuses requires a virtual permit or casual parking payment. There are a limited number of parking permits issued each year, so if you're living on college and have a car it is recommended you purchase a permit as early as possible. Nathan campus colleges have a gated off-road car park with limited spaces that you can request access to, once a permit has been purchased. Spaces in this carpark are allocated as the requests come in until spaces are full. Check out the specific parking permit or parking arrangement that suits your needs on the Parking website.Visit the Parking website
