Special permits

Monash University operates a parking permit system for regular users of campus car parks. Permit areas are defined by different colours, each with different eligibility for usage. Special permits are available to eligible groups who access our campuses.

If you are a visitor to campus or not eligible for a parking permit, we have visitor parking areas available for you to park.

Departments and faculties

Yellow permits are available for department and faculty usage when they would like to pay for their visitor parking or if staff are travelling between campuses for business purposes. Yellow permits cannot be purchased for personal use.

Yellow permits:

  • Allow you to park in Yellow and Blue areas on all campuses except Parkville
  • Can be purchased for 2hr, 4hr, 5hr or daily parking sessions
  • Can be purchased immediately or in advance of specific times
  • Must include an associated vehicle registration number
  • Must include an associated cost centre and fund

Permit prices

Departmental or faculty budgets are used to pay for Yellow permits. Payment will be processed at the start of each month for the previous month’s activity and a report on usage can be accessed by authorised users.

Contractors

There are two parking options for inducted contractors who work on our campuses. You can either pay as you use with CellOPark and only pay for the time you park, or purchase an annual permit.

Both parking options allow you to park in Blue areas all day, or Yellow areas for a maximum of 2 hours at a time.
