Public transport isn’t always an option; as such the University has partnered with a NSW start-up, backed by NRMA, DIVVY Parking, so that all on-site carparking can be pre-booked at $1/hr from the 30th of July. Further, to ensure our campuses are accessible built environments the University is offering priority access to free, on-site parking for students and staff who have an RMS permit. For more information and to sign up for an account visit Parking on Campus.
Liverpool Westfield have also offered all Ngara Ngura building staff and students $8 daily parking with any purchase from a Westfield retailer or $12 without any purchase. Simply present to the Westfield Concierge with your ID card and a receipt of your purchase to validate your parking ticket. This is instead of their standard $50 daily parking rates.
If you prefer to bike it into uni, we have bicycle stands in the basement. There are also bicycle stands at Liverpool Train Station if you prefer to leave your bike there.
