If your vehicle is parked outside of parking bays displaying this symbol, the requisite fee for a parking permit must also be paid and all outlined parking regulations must be followed.

A blue Australian Disability parking permit can park for free in parking bays displaying the Blue or Red international symbol of access (as signed) on Griffith University campuses. If your vehicle is parked outside of parking bays displaying this symbol, the requisite fee for a parking permit must be paid and all outlined parking regulations must be followed.

This is in accordance with the information published by the Queensland Government.

Event Parking

Free event parking may be organised to assist in hosting Griffith University events on campus. Note, no parking is available at South Bank campus.

It is now possible to generate short term permits for attendees to use. This allows attendees to park in general permit areas and the G55 multistorey casual parking area, by registering their vehicles at a Pay-by-Plate parking machine. Event parking is not valid within other multistorey car parks.

If event attendees do not follow instructions or enter their information incorrectly, they may receive an infringement that is unable to be rescinded.

Where possible, we’ll always try to facilitate and assist with your event. In order to do so, information about the event is required; Application Form.
