Accessible parking

Accessible parking spaces are available in various areas around campus.

ANU requires staff who are Government disability parking permit holders to also apply for an ANU disability parking permit in order to use accessible parking spaces on campus. This is so the demand for accessible parking can be monitored and only eligible ANU staff can use the allocated spaces. This also applies to staff requiring a Temporary Disability Parking permit for use on campus – due to a short term injury or illness that is restricting their mobility.

Authorisations will only be issued to those staff who can demonstrate a need (through medical documentation) for access to accessible parking, whether on a temporary or permanent basis. ANU permits need to be re-issued each year.

Correctly displayed ANU disability parking permits allow a person to park in:

  • marked accessible disability parking bays
  • pay or voucher parking spaces at no charge
  • timed parking bays for extended times for:
  • a maximum of two hours if the signposted time limit is 30 minutes or less
  • unlimited time if the signposted time limit is more than 30 minutes.

ANU disability parking permits do not allow vehicles to be parked in unauthorised zones, such as:

  • loading
  • bus
  • medical practitioner
  • no stopping/parking zones
  • red kerbs
  • similar restricted areas.

ANU disability parking permits are only valid on the ANU campus and does not entitle a staff member to use accessible parking off campus, in council car parks, etc.

For staff to seek approval for accessible parking, please email with medical documentation and the timeframe that the parking is required.  The Injury Management Team will then contact the Parking Office to confirm this has been provided.  Further instructions for registering for Accessible Parking through the VPermit system can then be actioned.
