There are several designated parking areas and open spaces for student parking on the Mt Albert campus - though not always right next to your classroom. Check the campus map for specific parking areas.
Free and pay-and-display parking
Approximately 60 percent of the carparks are free and the remaining car parks are pay-and-display. The minimum charge is 50c, and if you're parking for the whole day you only pay $3.00. These parking charges apply Monday to Friday, between 8.00am and 5.00pm, during the academic year (February to November).
Pay-and-display parking permits
If you regularly use the pay-and-display parking areas, you can apply for a pay-and-display parking permit. Permits cost $100.00 per semester or $160.00 for the full academic year (February to November). Application forms for pay-and-display parking permits are available from the Safety and Security Centre in Building 16 (Entry 2).
While we may have plenty of free and low cost parking at our Mt Albert campus, we do enforce a strict parking policy which allows for the wheel-clamping or towing of vehicles infringing the parking provisions.
Please ensure that you are parking your vehicle appropriately, taking note of nearby signage and road markings and clearly display valid pay-and-display tickets in your vehicle if required . If in doubt, it may be better to find a different parking space!
If your vehicle has been clamped, please contact Security on (09) 815 4321 ext 7777, or from an on campus phone on ext 7777.
Clamped vehicles will be released upon paying a $30 release charge at the Security Centre.
If you think your vehicle has been towed away, please contact Security on (09) 815 4321 ext 7777, or from an on campus phone on ext 7777.
Cars are towed as a last resort and any inconvenience is regretted, however it is important for all students and staff that cars are parked in a legal and appropriate manner.
Towed vehicles are taken to a vehicle holding-pound behind the Security Centre at the Mt Albert campus. Ace Towing are contracted to carry out this task. Vehicles can be recovered after paying a fee of $50 at the Security Centre.
Using the roads on campus
Please respect the 40kph speed limit, as well as emergency exit ways, visitor parking and no parking signs. Our internal campus roads often carry large vehicles and the campus shuttle, so it is important that this traffic has access in narrow areas.
