Paying for casual parking on campus

The parking meters are “Pay by Plate”. Park your vehicle, go to the meter, pay the fee and enter your vehicle’s registration number and go on your way.

You have four options to pay for parking at the meters and there are three different type of machines. There are nine that take credit card only, seven that take credit cards or coins and six that take credit cards or coins or notes.

You can still pay through credit card using the free mobile App called CellOPark.

You can download CellOPark from the app store now. When you pay for parking your licence plate will register as paid with the parking officers and you will not be fined.

You can also top up your parking at any machine by simply paying and entering your registration details.

eReceipts can also be requested from the machines. Anyone wanting a receipt should follow the prompts and enter their email address into the machine and a receipt will be emailed to them (Please note the machines cannot print out receipts).

The machines do not give change and the University does not provide refunds.

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.

Parking permits

Our parking permit system is currently offline. If you wish to apply for a permit, please email security.traffic@sydney.edu.au.

Please note that your parking permit is not activated until you receive a confirmation email.

The email will provide your parking permit number and advise you to attend either Campus Assist Help Desk at G12 or Cumberland to collect your parking permit sticker.  

Should you choose to park on campus before you receive the confirmation email and have appropriately attached the permit to your vehicle, you will be at risk of receiving a parking infringement.
