Where to park

Parking at UOW’s Wollongong Campus is limited and in high demand, especially during session. We strongly encourage using public transport, walking or cycling, where possible.

The Wollongong Campus is a Restricted Parking Area. NSW Road Rules and the University’s Access and Order Rules are strictly applied and penalties apply.

Each carpark on campus has different parking conditions which operate year round. Please refer to signage in the carparks and the parking map.  Current parking availability is shown on signs at each carpark entrance or the UOW Parking app.
