More Student Parking at the University of Newcastle, Callaghan Campus!

This petition had 1,654 supporters

Students at the University of Newcastle are struggle yearly with the issue of parking. Especially those living in rural areas, they have no other choice but to drive to the university for their classes, due to the lack of trains to and from the campus.  

Students are struggling to attend their classes on time due to the lack of parking. The current parking arrangements at the university are unacceptable, with some students on average searching for up to 90 minutes for a park. Some are abandoning the search and are going home, missing lectures and tutorials in the process or parking illegally on side roads or grass areas, risking the issuing of a fine. 

Even the allocation of additional over flow parking hasn't assisted the issue, with parking being located far from university buildings and are sometimes unsafe due to the lack of lighting and rough terrain.

It is time for the university to implement change!
