Availability of Parking
It is not possible to accurately predict daily demand for parking at each campus, therefore a permit cannot guarantee that a bay will be available. Locating a parking space can often be difficult, particularly at the beginning of trimesters or during exams.
Alternative transport is recommended, including cycling, carpooling and public transport. Please visit Deakin University's TravelSmart web page.
New! Purchase permits online for Salary Sacrfice
Salary sacrifice nominations for your parking permit will be done online in 2013. Your available permits and payroll deduction options will be displayed automatically once you log into the parking permit system.
Parking permits purchased using the salary sacrifice option will be posted to your nominated address. The system will issue you with a printable receipt which can be displayed while you await delivery of your permit in the mail.
The salary sacrifice parking permit system can be accessed here.
