Note: Changes to Parking at UQ in 2017

** Paid parking applies 7am - 9pm, Mon - Fri (excluding public holidays)**
    [Note: Relaxation of rules]

    Conditions of Use

  • If paying upfront, the permit year runs from 1st January – 31st December.
  • The minimum length of time a permit may be purchased for is 4 weeks, unless the customer wishes to purchase a one off trial permit for one or two weeks.
  • Restrictions apply in relation to the cancellation and reissuing of permits. The only exceptions to this rule are the return to work of permit holders who have been on maternity leave, extended sick leave or who are assessed as a case for special consideration.  In these circumstances they will be issued a permit straight away if space is available within the carpark.
  • Staff permit holders increasing the number of days their permit is valid will be placed on the waitlist  (e.g. from part-time to full-time, or from 2 days per week to 3 days per week).
    Staff part-time permit holders wishing to change the days their permit is valid (e.g. from Mon, Tues, Wed, to Wed, Thurs, Fri) must accompany their request with a letter or email from their supervisor detailing the change in work pattern, otherwise they will be placed on the waitlist.
  • Permit holders who pay via fortnightly payroll deductions can only request for their payroll deductions to be ceased whilst on leave if the period of leave is 3 months or greater.
  • Permits paid by payroll deduction are automatically renewed each year and permit-holders therefore do not need to submit an annual renewal form. Payroll deductions for parking will automatically be salary packaged.
  • Automatic renewal of Chancellery permits will continue until the permit-holder advises that it should be cancelled and also returns the permit to the Parking office.

Please note: Once permit numbers are exhausted in staff carparks, staff will be placed on a waitlist.

When the University has received a ruling on the issue all staff motorcycle permit-holders will be contacted to confirm their preference.
  • Otherwise, payment may be made at the PF Assist reception in Building 42, by cash, credit card, or Eftpos.

What is this permit for?

Motorcycle permits allow for motorcycle parking only in designated motorcycle areas. Motorcycles may not be parked in parking bays assigned for cars in any zone on all University sites. This condition applies at all times, not only during the hours of paid parking.Motorbike Zone

If you ride a motorcycle only occasionally, and usually drive a car to University, then the motorcycle details may be added to the motorcar parking permit - that is, an additional motorcycle permit would not be required.

For the purposes of the Paid Parking Scheme, all scooters - whether or not they are required to be registered with Queensland Transport - are treated in the same way as motorcycles.

Where are motorcycle areas located?

At St Lucia, open-air motorcycle parking is available:

  • adjacent to the Parnell Building (7),
  • in Cooper Road (adjacent to Building 74),
  • at the lower end of Staffhouse Road (adjacent to Buildings 47 ), and
  • University Drive.

Undercover motorcycle areas are available:

  • Conifer Knoll Car park (P11)
  • UQ Centre (P10),
  • Warehouse complex (P1),
  • Sir James Foots Building car park (Building 47A)
  • within Multi-level Carpark 2 (P3), and
  • below the Ritchie Laboratories (Building 64A).

Permits must be displayed on the motorcycle using a means that renders the permit details visible at all times.

Special Needs Permits

Pregnancy

How do I apply for this permit?

  • Please click here to download Parking Permit Application Form - PF01:
  • After completing the form please deliver it by fax, email, or by hand to PF Assist, Level 2 Prentice Bldg (42).
  • Before applying for a Special Need permit, pregnant women should have applied for Parental Leave so that PF Assist can confirm the dates with Human Resources Division. Where a woman wishes to work beyond six weeks prior to the expected confinement, a Statutory Declaration must be provided to this effect, with the anticipated final day of work identified.
  • The staff member would be required to return their current permit to PF Assist before the Special Need permit was issued. Payment at the current Staff permit rate would continue until the Special Need permit was no longer required.
  • If a pregnant woman does not hold a current Staff parking permit, then she would need to pre-purchase the Special Need permit at the same fortnightly rate as a Staff Undercover permit. If her details are not recorded on Aurion, then each request would be dealt with on a case-by-case basis at the UQ Transport Systems management level.

What is this permit for?

Members of the University community who have a current annual Staff parking permit may - at no additional cost - upgrade the current permit to a Special Need permit from the time they are 16-weeks pregnant until they depart on parental leave six weeks prior to the birth of their child.

The Special Need permit would allow all-day parking in 1½ P, 14P Hourly and 14P Daily parking zones. The permit does not guarantee that a parking space would be available, and the permit-holder would be required to comply with parking regulations in the normal way. The permit does not allow parking in Disability Bays.

 

Infant Carer

How do I apply/reapply for this permit?

  • Please click here to download Parking Permit Application Form - PF01:
  • After completing the form please deliver it by fax, email, or by hand to PF Assist, Level 2 Prentice Bldg (42).
  • The permit will be issued with the mother's contact details, and the carer's name should be supplied for noting in the permit.
  • In the case of multiple carers, more than one vehicle may be registered. The permit will allow a maximum of 60-minutes parking.

What is this permit for?

This permit has been developed for women who have returned to work and/or study and are breast feeding or bottle feeding their babies. This will enable carers to bring the infant on campus, and to park within reasonable proximity of the mother's place of work or study.

The permit is valid in all 1½ P and 14P Hourly parking zones at St Lucia.

The criteria for issue would be that the applicant had recently returned from Maternity Leave, or in the case of students or new staff, other documentation could be provided e.g. a birth certificate.

 

Australian or Red Disability Parking Permit

What is this permit for?

Parking spaces are reserved for vehicles of people with mobility disability at a number of locations around University of Queensland campuses and sites.

A valid Australian Disability Parking Permit (ADPP), or Red Disability Parking Permit issued by the Queensland Government or an equivalent permit issued by another State or Territory must be displayed. The holder of these Permits may park without paying a fee in a University-designated Disability bay, or in any other University parking space other than Restricted or Reserved bays.

How do I apply for a Disability Permit?

If you would like more information or wish to apply for a Disability Permit, please visit the Queensland Transport Disability Parking Scheme website where you can download the application form.

 

Temporary mobility impairment

What is this permit for?

Given that the University does not issue a Disability Permit, there remains a need to accommodate people who experience a temporary mobility impairment that arises because of serious injury or surgery. Accordingly, members of the University community who have a current Staff annual parking permit may, at no additional cost, upgrade the current permit to a Special Need permit.

The Special Need permit would allow all-day parking in 1½ P, 14P Hourly and 14P Daily parking zones. The permit does not guarantee that a parking space would be available, and the permit-holder would be required to comply with parking regulations in the normal way.

NB The permit does not allow parking in Disability Bays under any circumstances.

How do I apply for this permit?

  • Please click here to download Parking Permit Application Form - PF01:
  • After completing the form please deliver it by fax, email, or by hand to PF Assist, Level 2 Prentice Bldg (42).

The applicant would be required to provide a medical certificate that indicated the date to which the permit would be required. The applicant is required to return their current permit to PF Assist before the Special Need permit can be issued. Payment for the current annual parking permit would continue until the Special Need permit was no longer required, when the original permit would be exchanged for the temporary permit.

If a person did not hold a current Staff parking permit, then he/she would need to prepay for a Special Need permit at the same fortnightly rate as a Staff permit. If the employee held only a motorcycle permit, then he/she would need to purchase a Special Need permit at the Staff permit rate for the duration.

 

 

Relaxation of Rules

After 5:00pm each weekday afternoon, Staff Permits and valid Pay & Display permits (tickets) authorise the holder to move their vehicles to either 1½ P, 14P Hourly and 14P Daily parking zones or Service & Maintenance bays/zones.
