Parking meters

Parking meters accept coins only. All you need is your licence plate details to enter into the meter and choose the 2-hour or all-day parking option.

Parking meters only accept $2, $1, 50c, 20c and 10c and do not provide change.

Parking regulations

University car parks are regulated by the Road Safety Act 1986 and its associated regulations.

  • A charge for parking applies (refer to 'hours of operation' above for paid-parking times).
  • A daily permit or digital ticket allows you park at any campus on the day of issue.
  • For safety reasons, the speed limit in all VU campuses is 10kph.
  • Users park at their own risk. University Management will not accept responsibility for any damage, accidents or losses.
  • Accessible parking spaces are available on each campus. You need to display a current Category 1 Municipal Disable Parking Permit.
  • Cars not parked according to car park signs will be fined.

Parking infringement notices

Parking infringement notices (PINs) are issued to vehicles parked contrary to the requirements of the car park signage.

Staff parking permits

Staff can salary package University parking permits and purchase annual permits through the parking office. Full details are available on the Facilities Department intranet site. You can have the fee automatically deducted from your fortnightly pay. Staff can park in E Permit or P Meter areas.

If you have a VU one-day scratchy permit, these may be used in either E Permit or P Meter areas.

Re-applying for permits

Staff who wish to have an E Permit or Reserved Permit, including current permit holders, will need to reapply for a parking permit. This is due to the time that has passed since permits were active and to accommodate the development of new processes.
