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, executive staff and Monash Residential Services.

Students

Permit parking is provided on a Pay As You Use (PAYU) model, meaning you only pay for the time you actually park.

PAYU is a new and improved way to pay for parking. 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 permit option on CellOPark. Students can use PAYU parking in Blue permit areas at the following locations. Click on the campus maps below to view Blue permit areas:

Campus Blue permit
Clayton All Blue areas
Caulfield Blue areas in Building J multi-level
Peninsula All Blue areas

Once you start a Blue parking session, you can travel between campuses parking in Blue permit areas without having to start a new session.
