Eligibility for a red staff parking permit

Only ongoing and fixed-term, full-time and part-time staff (as defined by the Human Resources system) may apply for a red staff parking permit.

Ongoing and fixed-term staff, who are also students, are not eligible for a student parking permit.

Full-time and part-time students who are also part-time staff may apply for a student parking permit.

A person can't have both a student and staff parking permit.

 

New staff

If your appointment is ongoing or fixed term you may be eligible for a staff parking permit.  Please contact the Unipark office for further information.

Casual, temporary or employment agency staff

Casual, temporary and employment agency personnel are not eligible for a staff parking permit but may park in short or long-term pay and display parking areas after purchasing and displaying a ticket. 

At the end of the time limit on the signage, the vehicle must be moved from the carpark.

Employees of the commercial enterprises on campus

You are eligible to apply for a staff parking permit if your employment is ongoing, or for a fixed term, and not a casual or temporary appointment, or from an employment agency.

Full payment is required at the time of obtaining a parking permit. If you are employed on a short-term contract, you may purchase a parking permit for periods of two-months duration.

One-day permits

If you are eligible for a staff parking permit, you may purchase a book of 10 one-day parking permits, which cost $27.50.

The date on the one-day permit being used must be written in ink in order for the permit to be valid. One-day permits may be used in red staff parking areas only and must be displayed face upwards on the dashboard of the vehicle.

If you are not eligible for a staff parking permit you can park in short or long-term pay and display parking areas after purchasing and displaying a ticket.

Please note – These permits are year specific.  They will expire at the end of the year printed on the permit.  No refunds will be given for unused permits.

There is a restriction of purchasing only 2 books (20 permits) per month.

Carpooling for staff

We offer carpool parking bays if you regularly share your commute to UWA. This carpooling system helps you share costs, reduce parking pressure and your carbon footprint.

If you are eligible for a red staff parking permit, you are eligible for a carpooling permit.

The minimum number of staff in a carpooling group is three and there is no maximum number.

 

How to apply for a carpooling permit

Visit the UniPark Office with the entire carpooling group and return your current red parking permit. Each person in the group with a vehicle will be issued with a carpooling permit. All you need is your staff number and vehicle details.

Fill in the following form to authorise the University to make automatic salary deductions for a carpooling permit:

Carpooling parking areas

A carpooling permit is issued for a carpark and bay for the exclusive use of the carpooling permit holders between 8am and 5pm from Monday to Friday (except Car Park 37 where parking is restricted between 7.00am to 8.00pm).  An area will be set aside in the existing area of any of the staff parking areas.

Carpooling permit holders may park in short or long-term pay and display parking areas after purchasing and displaying a ticket.

If you change your vehicle please remove the permit and visit the UniPark Office to get a replacement parking permit. If you lose your permit, a replacement can be obtained for $11.00.

Carpooling permits are not transferable from one person or vehicle to another.

If the carpooling group brings a different vehicle to UWA, the group must obtain a temporary parking permit.

If more than one vehicle from a carpooling group is found in the carpooling area at the same time, each vehicle will be issued with an infringement.

If there is a special need for one person in the group to bring an additional vehicle to campus you can purchase a book of ten one-day parking permits from the UniPark Office. These entitle the holder to park in the red staff parking areas.

Cancelling your staff parking permit

Yes, you can cancel your parking permit for the following reasons:

  • Staff who resign or retire from the University automatically have their deductions stopped on their final pay.
  • Staff who no longer have a requirement for a parking permit may apply to have their parking payroll deduction cancelled.
  • Staff who are on leave, long service leave, study leave and so on, for a consecutive period of three months or more, may also apply to have their parking payroll deduction cancelled.

Before your salary deduction is cancelled, you must return your staff parking permit with a completed Cancellation of Payroll Authority form (which you can get from the forms page of the HR website) to UniPark.

If the permit cannot be returned, the $11 replacement fee will be applied before the permit can be cancelled.  A Statutory Declaration may also be required to be completed.

The form is then processed by Human Resources who will action it from the next available pay. The University does not back date any cancellation of parking payroll deduction.

You can't re-apply for a parking permit within four months of cancellation. For carpooling, all members of the group must return their permits.
