If you have a student parking permit, you can park in the yellow parking areas (car parks 1, 4, 8, 9, 21 [upper], 31, 35, 37 and 43).

A parking permit does not guarantee you a parking bay.

If all the yellow student parking areas are full, you may park in short or long-term pay and display parking areas after purchasing and displaying a ticket.

Parking without a permit

For non-permit holders, or if the permit-parking areas are full, there are long and short-term pay and display parking areas:

  • Long-term (8am to 5pm)
    Car Parks 9, 17, 23, 25, 31, 33 and 35.
