Paperless virtual permits and 'pay as you go' parking are now available at UNSW

Parking at UNSW

Estate Management has identified opportunities to improve the parking experience on campus and has introduced changes to the UNSW parking permit system for 2021.

Paperless virtual permits (vPermit) and ‘pay as you go’ parking have replaced the UNSW annual staff parking permit system. These changes will contribute to our sustainability goals and cater for staff on flexible working arrangements and for staff who may not drive and park on campus every day.

If you would like to drive to campus, you will need to register via the new parking system.

Here are the key things you need to know about the changes:

UNSW staff

  • Annual parking permits are provided by the new vPermit system. These are now available to register for online via the vPermit website. For staff on continuing and fixed-term arrangements, these will continue to be offered as salary sacrifice. For staff on other arrangements, these can be purchased using a debit or credit card in person at the Gate 2 Security Office. Fees will not be charged until Monday 1 February 2021.
  • A new system of ‘pay as you go’ is now on offer to staff. This will be offered through the online CellOPark App at a flat rate of $8 per day for standard permit spaces (select Zone 2052033) or $24 per day for reserved parking spaces (select Zone 2052099). ‘Pay as you go’ is not eligible for salary sacrifice. You will need to download and register via the CellOPark App. Fees will not be charged until Monday 1 February 2021.

External partners, contractors and tenants

  • Parking permits are provided by the vPermit system. Weekly, annual, three- or six-month permits are available. Once you have registered for the most appropriate permit, payment is to be made in person at the Gate 2 Security Office using a credit or debit card. Fees are currently being charged.

UNSW students

  • PhD Candidates are eligible for annual parking permits which are being offered on the vPermit system. Registration for these permits is completed online and payment can be made at the Gate 2 Security Office by credit or debit card.
  • All other students are eligible to apply for an ‘after-hours’ permit which allows the permit holder to park in UNSW Permit Holder Bays after 3pm each day. These permits are purchased on a term-by-term basis. Registration is completed online and payment can be made in person at the Gate 2 Security Office by credit or debit card.

Visitors

  • Casual and visitor parking will continue to be offered via the CellOPark App and ‘pay by plate meters’ at current rates. Fees are currently being charged.
