UC Liberal Society started this petition to Mrs Vicki Williams (Deputy Vice-Chancellor Finance and Infrastructure) and

Students at the University of Canberra are tired of the appalling parking conditions on campus and the lack of public transport to compensate for this. UC Students would like to see elected UCX delegates lobby Vicki Williams and other University executive staff for:

  • More car spaces - take immediate steps to build a multi-storey car parking station on campus, whilst ensuring permit costs do not rise for students. Lower costs for resident parking and provide adequate lighting and CCTV in these spaces.
  • Properly light and maintain car lots - The University has a duty of care to ensure all on campus residents are able to get from their car to their residence safely. The reality is many young students walk in darkness to and from their residence, in fear of being attacked late at night.
  • Expand Public transport or ride-sharing options - whether that be expanding the bus network or a fast-tracked light rail, some students would prefer to use public transport. However the lack of regular services in off-peak times or the awkwardness of the current ACT transport system, means MORE students need to drive to and from class.

With students returning to campus after the COVID-19 pandemic, the University has an obligation to ensure the safety, access and (commercially) attract new students to campus. Parking is such a basic place to start. 

If you think the UCX should lobby for the above changes, PLEASE SIGN THE PETITION!
