Apply for a Staff Parking Permit

An all-year or Semester staff parking permit entitles the permit holder to park in areas designated for staff. Purchase of a permit does not guarantee the holder a parking space. It is simply a license-to-hunt.

Cost (GST inclusive)

All-year staff parking permit for 2017 is $600 and for 2018 is $800.
Half year permit is $300 for 2017 and for 2018 is $400.
Quarterly permit is $150 for 2017 and for 2018 is $200.
Monthly permit is $50 for 2017 and for 2018 is $66.65.

Permits are transferable. However, if you forget to transfer your parking permit to another vehicle and you wish to park on campus, a daily coupon must be purchased and displayed appropriately. Failure to do so will result in enforcement action and possible penalty as per the Parking and Traffic Statute 2017.

Obtaining a staff parking permit

Permits will be available from the Security Office at 114 Ilam Road. 2017 permits are available from the end of December 2016.
