UQ St Lucia Campus Lake Boardwalk
New footpaths and the boardwalk across the lake are examples of the way in which parking funds are used to improve access to the campus from parking areas and the UQ Lakes bus terminus. Many people use this infrastructure after crossing the Eleanor Schonell Bridge from Dutton Park.

Parking Fees & Charges

Since 1991, UQ Transport Systems has invested more than $50 million to create new parking facilities, to purchase modern and user-friendly equipment, and to make campus parking more safe, secure, equitable, accessible, and environmentally responsible. The Paid Parking Scheme is the sole source of funds for UQ Transport Systems, and income is invested in areas such as infrastructure, equipment, maintenance, and road safety. UQ Transport Systems is a not-for-profit organizational unit, aiming only for 100% cost recovery.

Each year, parking fees for the ensuing year are recommended by the Transport & Parking Advisory Committee to the Chief Operating Officer. Revision to parking fees, will help meet the cost of ongoing improvements to parking facilities for vehicles, motorcycles, and bicycles, plus road safety infrastructure to contain the speed of vehicles to the prescribed limit.

In 2014 it was announced that UQ parking fees would be increased over a 2 year period. This was the first increase in parking charges at UQ since 2010. The first and largest round of parking price rises was introduced on 1 January 2015. The second round of rises was levied from 1 January 2016 at UQ St Lucia, UQ Herston and PACE.
