Fair Parking for Griffith University Students

Parking rates at Griffith University to be more affordable.

Do you believe that parking at universities is too expensive? Yes??? then have your say! If we have enough backing and support then we will approach the parking sector with enough evidence to show that a lot of students have been affected. If we can get a bench mark of 6000 people to sign this then we will start to make steps towards helping students obtain lower daily parking costs, and/or gain access to further parking.

Recently, Griffith University's parking sector has developed a new permit system. This system has completely disadvantaged lower income university students because those who didn't have a chance to purchase a permit are forced to pay daily fees, equating to $360 per trimester ($6 per day). 

Griffith maintain that although parking permits sold out, they offered everyone equal opportunity to obtain parking permits however, this is not the case. Residential College Students and Staff received an email warning them that parking permits were selling. 

The average student however, was not sent this email and therefore was unaware until it was too late.

I am asking that people understand the inconvenience of this as numerous university students travel straight from university to work and vice versa. 

There are many students who are now in a dilemma who require permits, but unfortunately Griffith are not showing any care or concern regarding this issue.
