Avoid parking fines! Find out where and how to park on campus

Trimester 3 is nearly here! Travelling to campus by public or active transport is a great way to start the day – but if you think you’ll need to drive to uni, make sure you know how to pay for parking ahead of time so you don’t end up with a parking fine.

Where to park on campus

All of our campuses provide multiple parking options, including accessible parking. Check out our campus maps for specific parking locations. No parking is permitted in any orange bays.

Free parking

Permit parking

All other car parking requires a paid permit between 8.30 am and 4.30pm, Monday to Friday. Parking permits are not required for motorcycles, scooters or bicycles. 

Burwood and Waurn Ponds offer a range of parking permits and payment options. Different permits apply in different areas, so please follow the signs:

Remember that holding a parking permit does not guarantee you a car park on campus. 

New temporary car park at Waterfront Campus

If you’re studying at Waterfront Campus this trimester, remember that Car Park 2 is now closed and spots in the new Car Park 3 are extremely limited.

Car Park 3 is located on the corner of Cavendish and Smythe Streets. There are 93 general (white) parking spaces and four accessible parking spaces available. See map below (just click on the image to enlarge it):

You’ll need a general short-term parking permit (see above). Once you’ve parked, it’s a short 100 metre walk to the Deakin Cube and main entrance.

Work is continuing on the new multideck carpark at Waterfront Campus, which will provide permanent replacement parking by Trimester 1, 2024.

Save on parking this trimester!
