Seat Map



From 8.30am to 4pm much of the parking on campus is permit-only with specific areas of casual meter parking available. After 4pm, most parking areas become free and unrestricted areas.

The closest meter parking to our performance venues is located on the Eastern-side of Scenic Boulevard, near Wellington Road. Meter Parking at Monash University has recently changed and is now cashless and requires your vehicle registration. There are two ways to pay – To Pay-by-App you must download the CellOPark app, create an account with your registration & payment information, then, once you have parked, select your location and follow the prompts to ‘start’ and ‘stop’ parking. To Pay-by-Plate, once you have parked, you must enter your car registration number at one of the parking meters available, select the amount of time you wish to park and insert or tap your credit/debit card to make payment.

There are convenient Accessible Parking spaces in all car parks for disability permit holders. If the disabled parking bays are full, you can then park in any red, yellow or blue permit spaces, ensuring you display your disability permit.

Wherever you park, be sure to follow the signs to avoid a fine. For further details, please visit the Monash University Parking website.

For Alexander Theatre, the closest unrestricted parking on weeknights and weekends is S2 underground parking off Ancora Imparo Way.
