Tickets, Permits and Penalties

UOW Parking - Penalties Image

Any vehicle parked on the Main Campus must display a valid parking permit or ticket.

Fees apply for Pay and Display ticket bays and the Short-term Parking Station (free for the first 30 minutes).

A UOW Entry Permit provides access to signposted UOW permit bays or carparks only – not reserved parking bays, the Parking Station or ticket or time-restricted ticket bays (except the Western Carpark where signposted).  A permit does not guarantee a space.  Fees apply.


Reserved, UOW and Motorcycle Permits must be displayed on the driver’s side of the windscreen (or fixed on the motorcycle).  Permits must not be placed behind window tinting.

Pay & Display tickets must be displayed on the dashboard, correct side up and visible from outside the car.

Application Forms

Disabled (mobility) parking

Mobility permit holders are authorised to access dedicated disabled parking bays, UOW entry permit or ticket bays, free of any charge.  Parking Stations are also accessible, free of charges.  Permit holders should see the Parking Attendant for a free validated exit ticket.

Only those with a mobility permit  are authorised to access the dedicated disabled parking bays and this applies 7 days a week, 24 hours a day.

Penalties apply to improper use of designated disabled parking bays.   


Incorrect placement or absence of a valid ticket or permit  and parking in designated disabled parking bays without a mobility permit may incur a fine.  Parking Enforcement Officers regularly check all carparks.  Obscured or unreadable tickets or permits will be treated as invalid.

Penalty Notices for breaches of the New South Wales Road Rules are determined by the Parliament of NSW, and cannot be reviewed by the University.  Refer to the Penalty Notice for information on how to pay or dispose of the notice.
