Parking and travel during exams



It's important to plan how you will be travelling to and from your exams so you can arrive on time. You need to factor in peak hour traffic, parking restrictions and public transport timetables (especially on public holidays).

Public transport

If taking public transport, check for any planned works on train or tram lines. This information, along with timetables, maps and a journey planner, can be found on the Public Transport Victoria website.

Protective Service Officers are stationed at all premium railway stations including Caulfield and regularly patrol trains to and from this station.

Check the list of public transport services running to and from Caulfield campus.

Inter-campus shuttle bus

Regular, free shuttle buses run to and from the Berwick, Peninsula and Caulfield campuses via the Clayton campus. A bus also runs from Peninsula campus to Frankston Railway Station.

Buses fill quickly at busy times but leave about every 17 minutes. Just show your Monash student card to use the service. See the inter-campus shuttle bus timetable.

Evening exams shuttle bus service

As well as the existing inter-campus buses, extra bus services will run express to and from the Clayton campus bus loop to the Caulfield Racecourse exam venue. Semester one timetable to be confirmed closer to exam time.

Campus security bus service

Security buses operate on our Clayton and Caulfield campuses from 5.30pm to midnight, Monday to Friday. They leave about every 30 minutes.

See the security website for more information, including the bus routes for the campus security bus.

Evening exams security bus service

Extra security buses will be available for students leaving an evening exam. Pick up and drop off locations to be confirmed.
