The new vPemit (virtual permit) system provides significant improvements for UQ staff who park at the University’s campuses or utilise permits for visitors and guests. The system will eliminate the need to have paper permits.

Parking at UQ St Lucia is hard to find during semester peak periods from 7am until 3pm - so check out Carpark availability here before your trip.

All permit applications, renewals and changes to your active vehicle can be completed online at vPermit.
