Car Parking Procedures


The University of Adelaide advises that whilst any vehicle is parked on campus pursuant to the University By-Laws, neither the University nor any of its authorised persons are liable for any theft, loss or damage to any vehicle and/or its contents.

1.1 Grace Periods

Parking within North Terrace campus requires a permit at all times apart from:

  • 15 Minute Zones - No permit required. Parking strictly 15 minutes only, seven days a week, 24 hours a day.
  • Loading Bays - No permit required. Parking allowed for the unloading and loading of goods and equipment. All vehicles have 30 minutes unless previously arranged with the Tenix Solutions Parking Services on 1300 106 065.

Vehicles detected without a permit will be noted by the Parking Inspector and rechecked 15–20 minutes later. This allows time for visitors to collect a permit and return to their vehicle to display the permit.

1.2 Disability Parking

Disability Permits issued by the Department of Transport are recognised for occasional short-term parking, three (3) hour limit maximum, on North Terrace Campus.

In the event the user is a staff member or student parking regularly on campus, a University permit is required and must be displayed.

Staff and students with Department of Transport Disability Permits parking regularly on campus are encouraged to park in white lined areas where possible and if convenient, to allow for greater use of disability access parking bays.

Disability access parking bays are located throughout the North Terrace Campus and are highlighted in the campus map. In the event all parking bays are occupied, Disability Permit holders can park in any plain white lined parking bay.

1.3 Changing Vehicles

Please contact Tenix Solutions ( to amend your vehicle details.

Parking Permits can be peeled off the windscreen if a vehicle is sold, repaired, changed etc. and placed in the new vehicle.

If a permit is damaged, a new permit will be issued free of charge, upon return of the damaged permit to:

Office: Tenix Solutions Parking Services, 61-63 Carrington Street Adelaide
Mail: Tenix Solutions Parking Services, PO Box 10096, Adelaide SA 5000
