Parking at ECU is divided into clearly identified zones for staff, students and visitors, outlined on our campus maps.

Parking permits

Parking permits are required to park in all ECU parking zones between business hours (8.00am - 5.00pm weekdays). With the exception of ACROD areas, no permits are required for parking after hours, with staff and students encouraged to park as close as possible to buildings to aid personal safety whilst on campus.

If you have been issued with a parking infringement at ECU, find out how to pay or appeal the infringement.

The following tips may assist you in avoiding a parking infringement in the future:

  • Read our ECU Lands and Traffic By-Laws prior to parking on ECU grounds.
  • Ensure that your parking permit or ticket is clearly displayed at all times. Infringements are issued for not displaying a permit, not necessarily for not owning one.
  • Notes on dashboards are not accepted in place of a permit. If you are not driving your normal vehicle, obtain a temporary permit.
  • All vehicles parked in areas signed ‘Visitor Parking’ must display a valid visitor permit from the ticket vending machine.
  • For the protection of the University environment, and for the safety of students, staff and visitors, vehicles are not permitted to park on verges, grass areas, roads or pathways.
