Parking around the University of Queensland (St Lucia)
The University of Queensland main campus is located in St Lucia and offers on-site parking for students and visitors. To ensure residents who live in this area have access to on-street parking, a Traffic Area and Regulated Parking Permit Area are in place.
The St Lucia Traffic Area surrounds the university’s grounds and a two hour area-wide parking limit applies on all unsigned streets in the area between 7am-6pm, Monday to Friday. The Traffic Area operates between February and November only and there are signs on roads that enter the St Lucia Traffic Area that highlight the start of the area-wide parking limits. Highly visible information signs have also been installed underneath street signs to help motorists identify what streets are within the area. Vehicles that have a valid parking permit are exempt from the two hour area-wide parking limit.
The St Lucia Regulated Parking Permit Area is located on the outer university catchment area, adjacent to the St Lucia Traffic Area. Parking signs have been installed on each street in the area indicating the parking time limits. Vehicles that have a valid parking permit are exempt from the time limit indicated, if the parking sign says ‘Resident Permit Excepted’.
If you park for longer than permitted in the St Lucia Traffic Area and Regulated Parking Permit Area without a parking permit, you could be fined. If you live within the St Lucia traffic or Regulated Permit Parking areas, you can apply for a parking permit.
