Staff and students

Monash University operates a parking permit system for students and staff. Permit areas are defined by different colours, each with varying eligibility for usage.

Permits differ depending on whether you are a student or staff member. There are different options available for students, staff, emeritus staff, executive staff and Monash Residential Services.

Students

Permit parking is provided on a Pay As You Use (PAYU) model. Using your mobile phone or computer, you start and stop your parking session with CellOPark and only pay for the time you are parked, charged by the minute.

Parking locations

The most affordable option for students is parking in Blue permit areas on campus and selecting the Blue zone option on CellOPark.

At select campuses, you are also able to utilise the Red permit areas after 10:30am at the Red zone rate.
