Rules and infringements

Macquarie University has a traffic and parking policy. Refer to our Traffic and Parking Rules.


Parking compliance at Macquarie University is enforced under the ‘NSW Road Rules for a Restricted Parking Area'. Enforcement of the restricted parking area is managed through the issue of penalty notices which are processed by Revenue NSW.

Any non-compliance with the University's Traffic and Parking Rules may result in a parking fine being issued.

How to avoid receiving a parking fine

  • Obey all parking and road signs
  • Park only in marked bays and parking zones that you are permitted to use
  • Ensure you have paid for parking either via PAYG, vPermit or ticket machine (details here)
  • Ensure you have selected the ACTIVE vehicle registration using your parking account
  • Ensure that you START and END your parking session using your CellOpark PAYG account - it's the driver's responsibility to activate and stop each parking session.

Hours of operation

Student and staff parking rates for PAYG users apply between 6:00am and 6:00pm, Monday to Saturday.

Visitor, Sport and Aquatic Centre and Sports Fields parking rates apply between 6:00am and 6:00pm, seven days per week.

A vPermit allows parking at any time so the above hours of operation do not apply to vPermit holders.
