UOW has implemented an online parking permit management system (vPermit). vPermit is available on the Wollongong campus, Innovation campus and at some student accommodation residences.
vPermit allows UOW staff, eligible students, and other user groups to apply for and manage parking permits online (eligibility conditions apply).
The system replaces physical paper and sticker permits, and paper-based application forms. Physical parking permits are no longer issued.
The vPermit system is integrated with a vCompliance system that uses vehicle licence plate recognition. Your vehicle licence plate may be checked by UOW Security when you are parked on campus or at student accommodation residences.
The vPermit system also allows users the flexibility to have multiple vehicles linked to a virtual permit, and switch between vehicle licence plate numbers depending which car they are driving to campus that day. You need to enter your vehicle licence plate number/s in the system when applying for a permit, and manage any changes required. If you enter multiple vehicle licence plates, you can only have one of these vehicle's selected as 'Active' at any time (i.e. only one vehicle can be parked at any time).
It is your responsibility to ensure the vehicle licence plate number you have selected as ‘Active’ in vPermit matches the vehicle you are driving to campus that day for your permit to be valid. If you do not have the correct vehicle selected as 'Active' you could receive a fine.
If you do not have a vPermit, please ensure you have an active CellOpark session or a valid ticket. Please check you have parked in the correct area by checking local signage conditions. Permits are valid only in designated areas in P2, P3, P4, P5 and P8.
