The C12 car park was re-zoned for University development on Sunday 7 October 2018. Following this date, the C12 car park will be permanently closed and MRS Urban Community resident parking reallocated to the N1 car park. Construction of the new Technology Education building will take place on the C12 car park site.
MRS Urban Community Residents will be able to use any blue permit parking bays (approximately 2,900) in the N1 car park. Blue parking is available on levels 1-6. MRS residents must have their purple Urban Community residential parking permit visible on their front windscreen when parking in the N1 car park.
The N1 car park is located in the north west corner of the Clayton campus, please see Map.
Residents are not allowed to park in the south east car parks with their residential permit.
The C12 car park will have 30 minute drop off bays throughout the construction period. This will allow MRS Urban Community residents and staff to park for up to 30 minutes in the C12 car park when dropping off their belongings.
If you ever feel unsafe getting around campus, security officers are available to escort you to your car, public transport, taxi pick-up points, colleges or other locations on or in the near vicinity of the campus. This free 24 hour service is available to all students and staff from anywhere on campus and can be arranged by calling 9902 7777. If you intend to work late at night and know you will need assistance, try to book a security escort in advance to avoid delays. If your escort is delayed for any reason, the Security Office will contact you.
In advance of the C12 car park closure, Buildings & Property have conducted lighting and safety audits along Sports Walk, College Walk, Alliance Lane and Campus Park to ensure all routes have adequate lighting levels in the evenings. The car park has security cameras on all floors and an elevator on the south side, whilst bike bays have been installed to allow for smooth transfer from your residence to the N1.
The Buildings and Property Division decided to relocate the Urban Community parking to the N1 car park because of the conditions it offered to residents. There are more parking bays available, more surveillance cameras, great lighting, and it is closer to regularly populated central campus areas and has lots of bike hoops for free Monash share bikes.
The SE car parks were look at very closely. However, this area is not as illuminated as the N1 car park, and has fewer parking bays.
The Buildings and Property Division wanted to select a car park where they knew residents were assured to find a car park 24 hours a day and could walk to your residence, as safely as possible.
To have the Technology and Education Building ready for students to use for Semester 1, 2020, the Buildings & Property Division are on a tight deadline to begin construction and meet this completion date.
