Park n Ride

Property Services provides a Park n Ride service which is available to all University staff and students. 150 spaces are available for the exclusive use of permit holders from the hours of 7:30am to 7:30pm Monday to Friday (excluding statutory public holidays). Park n Ride users are required to display a valid University Park n Ride permit in the windscreen of their vehicle at all times in the car park.

The Park n Ride car park spaces are located within the larger Forsyth Barr stadium car park. Any vehicles parking outside of the designated University Park n Ride spaces will be subject to the Stadium's parking rules, charges and penalties.

From 2021, permit holders are required to pay an annual $50 administration fee. Once all permits are filled, the Park n Ride waiting list will be cleared with a new waiting list starting for the following year. No applicants will be added to the waiting list for the following year.

Note that more than 150 permits are issued for the Park n Ride, so payment of the fee does not guarantee a park.

Students will be able to collect their Park n Ride permit from the Property Services office located on 111 Albany Street and must provide photographic ID when collecting their permit.
