Parking at Western Sydney University
Western Sydney University campuses are restricted parking areas. When on campus you must park in accordance with the Western Sydney University Parking and Traffic Policy. This includes displaying a valid parking permit on the front windscreen of your vehicle and parking in the correct bay for your permit.
Western Sydney University operates a paid parking system on all suburban campuses, with the exception of the Nirimba Education Precinct, which is governed by a community title.
Parking Permits for 2019
The end of year is fast approaching and it will soon be time for Campus Safety and Security to issue 2019 parking permits.
For staff who salary sacrifice/salary deduct their permit fees, the 2019 permits will automatically be issued to the address on your permit record from the beginning of December 2018.
If you have changed your postal address or your vehicle registration details please update your permit record by completing the Change of Parking Permit Details form
Please note: Updating your personal details in Staff Online does not automatically update your parking permit record. The Change of Parking Permit Details form is the only way to amend your permit record.
Staff who purchase their permit via OneStop will be able to purchase a 2019 permit from 1 December 2018.
