Parking FAQs 

At the start of 2024, the University introduced EasyPark, a digital parking permit system to make parking more convenient for our students, staff and visitors at UWA.

What does that mean to you? Staff and students should have received an email from [email protected]. If you haven't received this email or if you have further queries, you can find more information in the FAQs listed below.


What you need to know

For students and visitors

There is no more distinction between student and visitor parking areas. Instead, new yellow (student and visitor) bays are available to both students and visitors.

Eligible students have the ability to choose between either a 'virtual' permit or pay-as-you-go (PAYG) parking option through the EasyPark app. 

For staff

Staff salary-deducted annual permits have transitioned to a 'virtual' permit, eliminating the need for physical permits on windscreens. All full-time or part-time staff can apply for a salary-deducted parking permit to use in red (staff) bays.

All UWA full-time, part-time, and casual staff using one-day parking permits (scratchies) will transition to using the EasyPark app for pay-as-you-go (PAYG). This change eliminates the need for pre-paying for parking vouchers. Read more staff information here.

Changes to student and visitor parking areas

UWA has implemented changes to student and visitor parking areas for improved accessibility and convenience.

  • There is no longer a distinction between student (yellow) and visitor (green) parking areas. Instead, new yellow general purpose bays are available to students and visitors.
  • Eligible students registered with EasyPark will be charged the student rate for parking in these yellow (student and visitor) bays. Visitors will be charged the visitor rate.
  • The new yellow zones means easier access to conveniently located parking at student rates for eligible students.
  • The yellow bays, can be used by both students and visitors, with distinct pricing:
    • Student rate parking will be 50c per hour to a maximum of $2 per session*. A session is valid for a full day (i.e. If you park for 4 or more hours in one session, the maximum payment remains at $2).
    • Visitor rate will be $3 per hour.
  • There are a limited number of green (special reserved visitor) bays, which are exclusively reserved for use by visitors attending UWA clinics (optometry, sleep and podiatry, Oral Health Centre, University Club members and Lawrence Wilson Art Gallery visitors. Always check signage and bay colour for zone confirmation.

*Session validity: A session is valid for a full day. For example, if you park for 4 or more hours in one session in the same car park, the maximum payment remains at $2. You can park in yellow (student and visitor) bays for this price.

REMEMBER: Your session is valid only if you remain parked in the same car park. If you leave campus and park in a different car park, you must stop your old session and start a new one for the new car park. However, if you leave the car park and return to a different car bay within the same car park, that is allowed within the same session.
