Parking rules and regulations

Parking procedures

The University’s Parking Procedures include all the rules and regulations around parking on Victoria University campuses and are the first point of information for anything to do with parking on campus.

Speed

The University campus precincts are pedestrian areas with vehicle access restricted to a maximum speed of 15 kilometres per hour (15 kph).

Illegal parking

With the exception of visitor parking and authorised contractor parking, parking on campus is restricted to staff permit holders only. If you are a staff member and wish to apply for a permit, email carparking@vuw.ac.nz for more information.","sans-serif";>

Any vehicle found parked illegally without a current and valid permit on reserved spaces, yellow lines, disability spaces, on the grass, in designated service areas, blocking fire egresses or on non-marked spaces is liable to be ticketed, clamped or towed at the owner's risk and expense.

Parking across entranceways within the University precincts is prohibited. Doorways and/or emergency exits must never be obstructed by any vehicle—including cars, bicycles, scooters and motorcycles.","sans-serif";>

If a staff permit holder has parked illegally, parking staff will try to contact the owner of the vehicle to request that it be moved. If the vehicle is not moved, or if the vehicle owner cannot be contacted at the time, the vehicle will be clamped or towed.

Reserved spaces

Reserved parks on all campuses are restricted 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

If a ‘reserved’ or named sign is missing from its mounting, contact the FM Service Desk.

Penalties for illegal parking

Any vehicle illegally parked on campus or not displaying a current and valid parking permit is liable to be ticketed, or towed at the owner's risk and expense.

Park at your own risk

The University takes no responsibility for any vehicles, bikes, scooters or motorcycles parked on university-controlled property, whether or not vehicles are parked in designated parking areas. Staff, visitors and contractors park at their own risk and the University does not accept any responsibility for damage to, or theft of vehicles while parked on university grounds.

Student parking

VUWSA manage a small number of student parks around the Kelburn and Pipitea campuses.

Motorcycles

Permits are not required for motorcycles. A number of designated areas have been provided and motorcycles/scooters causing a hazard will be removed at the owner’s expense.

  • Roof of von Zedlitz service tower off Glasgow Street.
  • Laby—under building at south end
  • Ring Road—motorcycle deck behind Rankine Brown
  • Alan MacDiarmid—basement (staff only)
  • 85 Fairlie Terrace.

It is recommended that motorcyclists lock their bikes and take their personal property (helmets, etc) with them.
