Trimester and Annual parking permits

A parking permit is best suited for staff and students who regularly and consistently park on campus.

A permit allows you to park on campuses within the zone the permit is valid for. The permit holders number plate is linked to their permit so nothing needs to be displayed on the vehicle and no additional daily payment is required when parking.

A limited number of Trimester and Annual permits are available for each period and it is recommended you take note of upcoming sale dates to avoid disappointment.

For those who visit campus less frequently and for shorter periods of time, flexible casual parking remains a great option for you.

Note that there is no parking available at South Bank campus.
