PARKING

There is limited off-street parking around the UoW campus, most of which is restricted to one- and two-hour limits for non-residents. This is heavily policed by Wollongong City Council, so attendees are advised to pay close attention to parking restriction signs if parking off-campus.

There is ticketed parking on-campus for non-UoW employees and staff. In the 'Pay & Display' ticketed parking in the P3, P4 and P8 carparks, the maximum charge per day is $9.60. In the short-term parking stations, ticketed parking is available at a maximum of $15.00  per day.

Attendees are encouraged to walk or use public transport where at all possible.
