Types of parking permits
To park on Western Sydney University campuses you must purchase and display a valid parking permit. Use the information below to find which type of permit is best for you:
Note: only the purchase of a Dedicated Red with bollard parking permit guarantees you a parking bay at all times of the day.
Pay and Display one day parking permits
Pay and Display one day permits allow the holder to park in yellow parking bays. The exceptions to this is Parramatta South campus where, for an increased fee, the purchase of a Pay and Display one day parking permit will allow the holder to park in a blue bay.
Permit machines accept cash (coins only) and credit cards. Please refer to Parking maps for the exact locations of the permit machines.
Scratch and Display one day parking permits
Payment of Scratch and Display one day parking permits can only be made by journal transfer, which is processed by University Parking at the end of each month.
A Scratch and Display one day permit allows you to park in yellow bays at all campuses. The exception to this is Parramatta South campus where a Scratch and Display one day permit lets you park in a blue bay.
Annual and half year permits
General Yellow parking permits
Note: There are no yellow bays on Parramatta South campus. For further information on parking at Parramatta please refer to the Parking at Parramatta page.
Restricted Orange parking permits
A Restricted Orange permit does not allow the holder to park on any University campus during peak hours. Fines apply for parking with a Restricted Orange permit during peak hours.
Communal Blue parking permits
Only a limited number of Communal Blue parking permits are offered. The University Parking team monitor the number of Communal Blue permits issued and will stop issuing them once we are at capacity.
Dedicated Red parking permits
The purchase of a Dedicated Red parking permit only guarantees you a parking bay during peak hours (5:30am – 5:30pm). Outside of peak hours (5:30pm - 5:30am) red parking bays are available to Communal Blue and Restricted Orange permit holders.
Only the purchase of a Dedicated Red with bollard permit guarantees the holder a parking bay 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
To buy a Dedicated Red parking permit, with or without a bollard, you must first apply for an approval code. Approval codes are issued on a first-come, first-served basis. To apply for an approval code you must complete the Red Bay Approval Code Application Form. If a red bay is not available, eligible applicants will be placed on a waitlist and notified via email as bays become available.
Replacement parking permits
If a second replacement permit is required, you must submit a Statutory Declaration Form [PDF, 7.93 KB] (opens in a new window) with your Replacement Parking Permit Application Form before a second replacement permit is issued.
Once a replacement permit is issued, the original permit is cancelled and marked as invalid for use. Displaying an invalid permit will result in a parking fine.
