Permit prices are published on the parking and permits webpage. Prices have increased marginally (1-2%) in line with inflation and rising costs.
Purchasing your permit
Permits will become available for purchase on the above listed sale dates. To purchase a permit, visit the purchase portal and follow the prompts. Staff can choose to offset the price of a permit through salary packaging.
As in previous years, we issue permits on a first in, first served basis and waiting lists may apply at some campuses.
We have more than 600 carpool spaces across our Berwick, Caulfield, Clayton and Peninsula campuses. With an annual cost of $76, a carpool permit provides the best value for money parking at Monash. Find out more at the Monash Rideshare website.
Alternative transport options
We encourage everyone to consider sustainable and active modes of transport for their daily commute. At Monash we actively support public transport, walking and cycling with bike storage and end-of-trip facilities located at each of our campuses.
Our free inter-campus shuttle bus service connects the Clayton campus with our Berwick, Caulfield and Peninsula campuses. There’s also a free shuttle service between Peninsula campus and the Frankston Train Station.
Our public transport networks will see major improvements this year when we welcome the new Monash Transport Interchange to Clayton in February and see the upgrade of the Huntingdale Station Precinct in June.
Clayton campus parking changes
Parking permit locations
We have more parking than ever at our Clayton campus, with an additional 1,170 new spaces added last year. A further 800 spaces will also be available mid-year with the completion of the Learning and Teaching Building’s new basement car park.
There’s been some changes to permit and metered parking locations for 2017. These changes can be viewed on the 2017 Clayton parking and access map, and will take effect in stages throughout February. Please review these updated parking locations before purchasing a 2017 permit.
Free and discount metered parking
From Monday 27 February:
- Free parking will be available at the Off-campus Two (OC2) car park at the corner of Howleys/ Normanby Road. This will replace the free parking that was previously available at 264 Ferntree Gully Road, which has now closed.
- Discount metered parking will be available at the Off-campus One (OC1) car park at the corner of Wellington/Blackburn Road for $1 per hour or $5 all day.
Parking space line markings
All parking spaces have now been repainted with uniform white lines to increase the flexibility of our parking space allocations. To ensure you're parking in the correct permit area, check the parking permit signs in each car park.
New vehicle directional signage
We have a number of projects underway at Clayton to improve access and parking on campus. This includes new digital vehicle signage to help you easily find on-campus parking.
Dynamic LED signage will be installed at multi-level car parks, roundabouts and intersections across the campus, providing real-time data on the nearest available permit, metered and visitor parking spaces.
Changes to the south-west entrance
Campus access from the Monash Science School/ Monash College entrance off Wellington Road will only allow access to the South-west One (SW1) and South-west Two (SW2) car parks.
Connection through to Boundary Road to access the north of campus is no longer available due to the road realignment for the new Biomedical Learning and Teaching Building. Check the 2017 Clayton parking and access map for more information.
