Terms and Conditions

The purchase of a Deakin parking permit is restricted to University students, staff and authorised visitors/contractors only. Purchasing a permit for use by a non-Deakin motorist is contrary to the University’s Code of Conduct.

Please read the information below about using vPermit and/or parking at Deakin.

  1. Long term permits

    Long term permits can be purchased via vPermit (online parking permit system). Please visit www.vpermit.com.au/deakin. Registrations must be entered correctly (a maximum of three vehicle registrations can be entered but only one vehicle can be active/valid at any time).

  2. Pay by app at Deakin University

    CellOPark is an easy and convenient way to pay for parking. No need to queue at parking permit machines when you can manage your account on-line, receive SMS alerts, receipts and update your account details. All you have to do is download the free CellOPark app to get started. To find out more, visit cellopark.com.au.

  3. Parking permit machines

    Hourly and daily parking permits can be purchased from parking permit machines located on the Melbourne Burwood Campus and the Geelong Waurn Ponds Campus. These parking permit machines are pay by plate machines that require you to enter your vehicle registration correctly and they accept credit and credit/debit cards.
    If a parking permit machine is not working, please pay by app using CellOPark.
    Parking permit machine faults are to be reported via email to parking@deakin.edu.au

  4. Salary sacrifice permits

    Eligible staff wishing to purchase a parking permit via salary sacrifice may do so by accessing vPermit (www.vpermit.com.au/deakin) and purchasing an Ongoing General or Orange parking permit. Staff will need to accurately enter their vehicle registration (maximum three registrations can be entered but only one vehicle can be valid at any time). Payments will be processed via fortnightly salary deductions and will continue until such time as the permit is cancelled or the employee leaves Deakin. To request cancellation of an ongoing permit, please email parking@deakin.edu.au Please note: there is no longer a requirement to apply for a salary sacrifice permit each year.

  5. Upgrading Ongoing (salary sacrifice) permits

    Requests for permit upgrades are to be directed to parking@deakin.edu.au. Parking administration staff can cancel your Ongoing General parking permit which will then allow you to purchase an Ongoing Orange parking permit. Fortnightly wage deductions will be adjusted accordingly.

  6. Visitor permits

    Deakin University Faculties, Divisions and Institutes are able to issue visitor permits for official University visitors and guests, via vPermit. Requests for access to issue visitor permits are to be directed to parking@deakin.edu.au. A generic team email address and an account code is required for processing of monthly charges for all visitor permits issued.
    Please note: University funds are not to be used to purchase visitor permits for private vehicles belonging to University staff.

  7. Refunds

    Deakin University does not refund parking permits.
