Parking at Griffith

Griffith campuses are Regulated Parking Areas (Griffith University Act 1998) and parking must be paid for.

Casual parking is available in daily (light purple) and 2-hour parking zones (green); view the campus parking maps below to find your best parking option. Payment can be made by card at a pay-by-plate machine on campus or via the Paystay app.

Trimester and Annual parking permits can be purchased by students and staff who regularly attend campus and who may find this option more economical. Trimester permits go on sale approximately two weeks prior to each Trimester. Annual permits go on sale prior to Trimester 1, all permits are subject to availability.

Note that there is no parking available at South Bank campus. Public transport or Brisbane City Council street parking should be utilised.
