Parking permits terms and conditions

Monash University roads and car parks are subject to the State traffic and parking laws, including the Road Safety Act and Road Rules (Victoria), and the university's own Parking Rules (as amended from time to time). These are applied to help ensure a safe and orderly environment.

Monash University campuses and car parks are under 24 hour/7 day video surveillance managed by Monash Security using closed circuit television, and may include vehicle licence plate recognition technology.

Your personal information is collected by us and on our behalf for the primary purposes of management of car parking on the campus and campus safety, including the prevention and detection of crime and misconduct. Other purposes of collection include traffic management and reporting purposes.

This information may be disclosed to contracted service providers of the University (eg, traffic management service providers), law and regulatory enforcement agencies (eg, VicRoads and Victoria Police), and where required or authorised by law.

If you do not provide your personal information you will not be able to purchase a permit to park in designated permit car parking spaces on campus. You have a right to access information that Monash University holds about you, subject to any exceptions in the legislation. For further information about  privacy at Monash University please refer to the Monash University Privacy Procedure.

The university does not accept liability for any damage, loss or injury arising in respect of any private vehicle on university property. This responsibility remains with the vehicle owner.

Availability of parking spaces

  • Whilst the university controls the numbers, types and locations of permits, no guarantee is given that a particular permit bay type will be available in any such location at all times. Parking is subject to normal user demand (first come). The responsibility for finding available authorised parking as always rests with the vehicle driver.
  • The university encourages the responsible parking of all vehicles. Vehicles found parked on university property contrary to the relevant legislation or rules may be issued with a parking infringement notice.

Students may purchase an annual permit or opt to make a half year payment and renew mid year. Please note if you take this half-year payment option the release of parking permits for the second half of the year will be limited.
