Driving and parking

If you decide to drive to Deakin University, you’ll need to purchase a casual parking permit.

Your parking permit allows you to park in the white bays (General Permit zones) on campus. You will need to pay for parking between 8:30am–4:30pm, Monday to Friday. Students and visitors are unable to park in orange bays.

  • Parking with CellOPark

$1.60 per hour, $6.40 per day

To pay for parking by the hour or day:

  1. Install the free CellOPark Australia App or visit the CellOPark website to create an account. You can start your parking permit session through the app, website or by calling CellOPark on 9111 1799 to use their call to park service.

  2. You can enter multiple vehicles on your account but only one vehicle can park at any time so, remember to ensure you enter your vehicle registration(s) correctly, and select the correct car when starting a parking permit session.

  3. When you park, open the app, select the relevant campus zone number (1040300 at Burwood) and press ‘start’. Stop the session when you leave, so you pay only for the time you are parked.
