Additional information

For additional information on travelling to Southern Cross University campuses including public transport options, cycling, walking and carpooling, go to the Travel to SCU page.

Southern Cross University provides a limited number of on-campus car parking spaces for the sole use of staff, students and campus visitors. All parking is offered free of charge.

SCU is a restricted parking area as defined by section 60 of the Road Transport (Safety and Traffic Management) Act 1999 and the Road Transport (General) Act 1999.

Drivers are required to observe the rules as they would on any public street and parking restrictions apply as signposted.

Campus roadways and parking are monitored by Security.

All parking is available on a ‘search & find’ basis.  There is no guarantee space will be available, particularly in the first four weeks of Session 1 which is our busiest time on campus.

Your car must be registered with the University and display a staff or student parking permit to access on-campus parking. Whilst motorcycle details must be registered also, motorcycles are not required to display a permit.
