Transport & parking

The University's Acton campus caters for student, staff and visitor parking. The University's goal is to minimise the environmental impact of university related travel, reduce the number of vehicles travelling to campus and promote sustainable transport.

Parking spaces on campus are limited and it is suggested campus community members consider catching a bus, cycling, walking or utilising ANU car share to travel to, from and around campus.

Parking restrictions apply on campus 24 hours a day, 7 days a week unless stated otherwise. Permit, Pay As You Go, Pay&Display (ticket) and time limited zones are in force from 8am to 5pm Monday to Friday, public holidays excepted.

The Facilities & Services reception counter in the Anthony Low Building is open from 9:30am-4:00pm Monday to Friday. This includes parking enquiries, payments and printing of Security cards. The parking office team can also be contacted by email at

The ANU Parking Team will also be available via appointment at the F&S Joplin Lane Hub between 11am to 1pm on weekdays. Appointments can be made for permit enquiries and permit payments only. Kindly note that parking infringement discussions will continue to take place in the Anthony Low Building at 124 Eggleston Road.
