How to apply for pre-purchase a Staff Premium vPermit (East 2 and 3 carparks)

Staff at Macquarie University pay to park on campus using our digital parking management system. There are two ways to pay for parking at work – vPermit or Pay As You Go (PAYG). 

The choice is yours

With either option (please register for just one), there are no tickets or display permits. The system uses licence plate recognition technology that identifies whether parking has been paid. Please take a moment to consider the following before deciding which type works best for you:

  • your budget
  • how often you park at work, hours of parking used
  • period and type of employment (see comparison table below)

2019 Staff vPermit rates and registration

vPermit (virtual permit) is an alternative to PAYG and to purchase a vPermit, head online and register via a secure portal. Once registered, your licence plate is proof of payment for the term of the vPermit.

In 2019, vPermits are available for a maximum of eight months (1 May to 31 December). The cost is pro-rata from the earliest start date of 1 May and staff can purchase a vPermit at any time during the year, with permits: 30-day, 90-day and longer.

What do I need to register for vPermit?

  • Macquarie University staff MQ OneID - make sure you include MQ at the start
  • DO NOT abandon the registration process part-way through, the session will time out 
  • Macquarie University staff EMAIL address (not Hotmail or Gmail)
  • Credit or debit card (for vPermits less than six months)
  • Car licence plate number/s: multiple vehicles can be registered on an account - YOU MUST SELECT THE 'ACTIVE' VEHICLE ON YOUR ACCOUNT - the system doesn't automatically recognise which car you're driving. Learn more.
