Paying for casual parking on campus

You have two options to pay for parking at ticket machines on campus:

  • Use cash at the ticketing machine and display the printed ticket on your car’s dashboard.
  •  Pay by credit card through a free mobile App called Cellopark. You won't need to display a ticket on your dashboard and using the App will save you walking to and from the ticket machine to your car.

You can download Cellopark from the app store now. When you pay for parking, your licence plate will register as paid with the parking officer and you will not be fined. Information regarding the change and the Cellopark App will also be displayed at each of the parking machines for your reference.


Most of our campuses either do not offer on-site parking, or only very limited spaces, which means you may need to find street parking or locate a private car park.

Parking permits are available to postgraduate or evening students for Camperdown/Darlington and Cumberland.

Disabled parking spaces

Students with a mobility / disability parking permit may park in disabled parking spaces. A mobility parking permit does not entitle you to park in spaces designated for University parking permit holders.

Penalties

You need to display your ticket on your vehicle at all times.

Any vehicle not displaying a current parking permit, an approved temporary visitor's pass or a valid pay-and-display ticket is liable to be issued with an infringement notice. The registered owner of the vehicle is responsible for any penalty imposed.
