There are many conveniently located car parks around campus. These are clearly marked on the attached map.

Ticket parking and Permit parking options are both available.

A free Loop Bus service is provided by the University. The service passes most car parks and runs at regular intervals.

Semester and yearly parking permits

Students and Staff of Flinders University can purchase yearly or semester permits. These allow you to park in the white line marked bays in all general car parks (not 6 and 13 which are short term car parks).

Permits are NOT VALID in short term ticket parking areas (i.e. they are not valid for any of the spaces in car parks 6 and 13, or for short term parks in car parks 4, 5, 7 and 15).

Online Purchase of Permits

Avoid the queue … 

In 2015 we are trialling online payment for parking permits. Initially this will be available to anyone with a current Flinders University Student or Staff ID wishing to purchase a Semester or Full Year car or motorcycle permit. (Note: permits may take up to 7 days to be posted).

Displaying your ticket or permit

Do not leave your vehicle parked without a ticket.

Hang tags (plastic Perspex hangers) are available from the Cashier’s office and can be used to hang your permit from the rear-vision mirror whenever you are parked on campus.  If utilising more than one hung permit (e.g. car-pooling) please use the appropriate slot, so that one hang tag hangs from the other for clear viewing of the multiple permits.  Please be aware that you are obliged by law to remove the hang tag/s from the rear-vision mirror before the vehicle is driven.

 


Overflow parking

During peak periods there is overflow parking available for University Students and staff on the main lower oval (opposite Flinders Private Hospital) access through car park 12A.

This car park is open from 9:00am till 6:00pm Monday to Friday during peak periods (clear signage will indicate when the car park is open). University parking permits are required to be displayed.

A shuttle bus is available to deliver you to the main campus buildings and the Loop Bus is available for the return trip back to the ovals.

The shuttle bus is a free service only for University students and staff using the overflow car park. 

 


Short term parking

Short term car parking can be purchased in the form of a ticket from the vending machines at the rate of $1.60 per hour.

Short term parking is available in car parks 4, 5, 6, 7, 13, and 15.

Tickets are available from the GREEN vending machines located in those parking areas.

Signage displaying 2P, 4P or 8P will indicate the maximum parking time allowed for those bays.

Only correctly displayed short term tickets are valid in the short term parking bays. 

Tickets MUST be displayed on the front dashboard, facing upright and be clearly visible from outside the front windscreen of the vehicle.

For ticket machine faults, please call 8201 2207 to report the fault immediately. Please quote the Ticket Machine ID and the car park number, and then obtain a ticket from an alternative machine. 

Do not leave your vehicle parked without a ticket.

 


Access Parking

Access parking is available in most car parks throughout the main campus and Sturt precinct.

Parking in disability parking bays with an Australian Disability Parking Permit does not require a University permit or day ticket.

The permit must be hanging from the rear vision mirror and facing forward so that the permit information is clearly visible from outside the front windscreen of the vehicle at all times.

To protect the rights of disability permit holders, Flinders University strictly monitors the use of Access parking bays.
