How to Pay for Parking

All visitors to campus, including staff, students and affiliates, are able to park on the Bruce campus in casual car parks. These car parks are identified by blue entry gates. A 30 minute grace period is applicable before casual parking rates apply. There is no casual parking available at the Scrivener building.

Please note that UC does not accept cash payments for parking. Payment may be made via Visa, MasterCard, Scheme debit or prepaid card. Parking charges can be paid on exit by inserting or swiping your credit card at the exit boom gate, or at the yellow ticket machine located in the Hub, outside the Commonwealth Bank.

How to use prepaid, single use casual parking tickets

Please read the following instructions on how to use your prepaid, single use casual parking tickets.

  1. You can only purchase the pre-paid booklet online from the University's Pay Parking web page.
  2. The purchaser will receive an electronic receipt after a successful purchase.
  3. Casual parking is only available in blue boom gated car parks. Holding a validated parking ticket does not guarantee that a space is available.
  4. After purchasing your book of casual parking tickets, please attend the Security and Traffic office in building 8 to collect your tickets. Please bring a copy of your receipt to confirm payment at the point of collection.
  5. To use your pre-paid tickets, note that you must simply insert a pre-paid ticket when exiting the car park. It is recommended that you discard the ticket taken on entry to the casual car parking areas to prevent confusion with your pre-paid tickets.
  6. Pre-paid tickets will expire, on 31 December in the year in which they are purchased.
  7. PLEASE NOTE: Please choose parking option carefully as there are no refunds.

Discounted parking rates are available for all University of Canberra and University of Canberra College Students who elect to purchase an e-Permit. Please refer to the parking rates page to review and select the most appropriate option for your circumstances, as there are no refunds on parking purchases.

Residential Students

  • There is no dedicated parking at Cooper Lodge and UC Lodge.  You can choose to purchase a student e-Permit which will give you 24/7 parking access to the multi-use carparks whilst your permit remains valid.
  • Campus Living Villages Residents may purchase student parking through CLV. This does not permit access to UC car parks.
  • Weeden Lodge paid parking users will be granted an e-permit to Campus Parking.

For the purposes of parking options, staff are defined as University personnel who may have a continuing, fixed-term, full time or part time employment status. Casual and sessional staff should refer to the Affiliate Parking option to purchase your e-Permit.

In addition to casual paid parking or prepaid casual parking options, staff may elect to purchase a fortnightly recurring e-permit through the completion of the Salary Deductions e-form. Access to the 'yellow' boom gated car parks and the Scrivener car park is via a valid e-Permit.

You can cancel any salary deduction via the Salary Deductions e-form. By doing this, at least one deduction will be applied to your fortnightly pay.  If you have just completed the form and wish to cancel this deduction, please email Payroll immediately.  Any delay in notifying Payroll could result in one deduction being applied to your fortnightly pay.

You can use the Salary Deductions e-form to apply for another salary deduction. Your previous deduction will cease at the date you've selected, and any future deduction can only commence after this date. You can only apply for a new deduction within 5 days of the previous deduction's end date.

Please note:

  1. E-permits are stored on your UC card – present this at the readers on the boom gate entrances for access and again on exit.
