Pay As You Use

Pay As You Use (PAYU) parking is used across all campuses to make parking on campus fairer, flexible and easier for staff and students. By using the CellOPark app, you only pay for the time that you park on campus.

Staff and students attending our campuses use the CellOPark app to pay for parking in Blue or Red permit areas (except for staff and HDR students who hold a 28-day vPermit). Check the information below to find out how and where you can park on campus.

How to park when you arrive on campus

When you arrive on campus, your daily PAYU parking is registered through the CellOPark app. For assistance in downloading and registering your account, see Setting up your CellOPark account.

To start a parking session using the CellOPark app:

  1. Open the CellOPark app when you park
  2. On the Street Parking screen, select Monash University location and the code for the area you are parking in. For example: 3800521 - Clayton - Blue. The zone code for your parking area is displayed on signage in the car park.
  3. Select the vehicle you are using, ensuring the vehicle registration is correct. If you drive a different vehicle to campus, make sure you select the correct vehicle registration number in the CellOPark app.
  4. Press START
  5. When you are ready to leave campus, press STOP and you'll only pay for the time you park. If you park for less than 5 hours and don’t press STOP you will be charged the maximum daily rate. The daily cap is 5 hours, so if you park for longer than 5 hours you do not need to press STOP when you are ready to leave campus.

If you do not have a mobile phone or have forgotten your phone you can start a CellOPark session either online at www.cellopark.com.au or by calling CellOPark on (03) 9111 1799 or 1300 CELLOPARK.

Parking prices

Parking rates in permit areas are charged by the minute, with a 5-hour maximum daily cap.

Parking rates in each parking area vary depending on the time of year.

Peak pricing

During peak periods of the University calendar where there is increased demand for parking on campus, Peak parking rates will apply. This has been introduced as a capacity management measure, and to increase the likelihood of finding a park when demand is high. We encourage you to consider public or active transport options during these peak periods.

In 2024, Peak pricing will be implemented in Blue, Red, Chancellery Red and Green permit areas in the following periods:

  • Week 1 to Week 4 in Semester 1 - 26 February to 22 March
  • During graduations (Clayton campus only)
    • May: 13 to 24 May
    • September: 9 to 20 September
  • Week 1 to Week 4 in Semester 2 - 22 July to 16 August
