Refunds for Bundoora campus parking - Semester 1 2020

In response to COVID-19, all RMIT Australian campuses will not be accessible in-person until further notice. Given this, RMIT and Care Park are offering to refund permit parking fees for all students who’ve purchased 2020 annual and bi-annual Bundoora campus parking permits.

To get a refund, complete the Refund Request Form (PDF) and return it to customerservice@carepark.com.au by 30 April 2020.

If you live in accommodation on-campus and are currently using the car park, you can still get a refund. Students living on campus can access free parking until face-to-face classes recommence.

When face-to-face classes resume, students who want another parking permit will need to apply by following the instructions below.

 

2020 parking permits for students and staff are now available for purchase through a virtual system (see below for application instructions).

Through the new system vehicle registration numbers will be used to verify that a vehicle can park on campus.

Students who use more than one car for commuting to university will be able to swap their virtual permit between vehicle registration numbers using the online system on an on-demand basis.

Application instructions

  1. Register online via EasyPark, providing your RMIT email address. You will need to create a new password which is eight characters long and must include one capital letter and one number.
  2. Provide your address and contact details.
  3. Under ‘Apply for permits’ enter your vehicle registration number and continue.
  4. Below you should find parking permit options available to you. Select the permit you require.
  5. Once you have paid, accepted the terms and conditions, and hit ‘apply’ your permit is active.

Please note the following:

  • There is no refund for virtual permits once purchased.
  • There is no refund available for lost or stolen paper parking permits.
  • Lost or stolen paper permits can only be replaced free of charge if evidence (in the form of a police report or insurance claim form) is provided. Otherwise, the paper permit will only be replaced if an additional fee is paid.
  • Only vehicles with a valid local council issued disability parking permit can park in disabled parking bays.
