Mobility Parking

Visitors, Students, and Part-time Employees

Massey University provides mobility parking spaces near all major buildings on campus.

These are for the use of visitors, students, and part-time employees who are displaying a CCS mobility card.

If there are no mobility parking spaces available, persons displaying a CCS mobility card, may park on a time-limited parking zones for double the time indicated, or on metered car parks for double the stated time (please note that charges still apply on meters).

Full-time Employees

Full-time employees (37.5 hours per week), who are holders of CCS mobility cards, are not permitted to park on mobility parking spaces, all day, as these are a limited resource.

However Massey University will provide numbered parking spaces for staff holding CCS mobility card, near their place of work, as resources allow, these parking spaces will be paid for by the individual at general parking rates, not numbered parking rates.

Visitor Parking

Visitor parking is a service provided for the use of departments when callers or guests are expected on University business. This service is not for the use of staff commuting between the Turitea and Hokowhitu sites.

Please note that Hokowhitu staff members with Reserve or Numbered parking have free access to Orchard Road and Bourke Road car parks. This provision is pre-programmed on all access cards at the time of issue.

Visitor parks are available for a single day only and to ensure that all departments have fair access, the number of parks that can be allocated is restricted. An automated booking system allocates all visitors parking, and an integral component is the use of email. Consequently, users are encouraged, in the first instance and wherever possible, to use email communication when requesting bookings.

To facilitate bookings users are reminded to submit requests, at least 24 hours before parking is required. Upon completion of the booking an electronic confirmation will be generated, at least 12 hours prior to commencement, detailing the park number and pin code for the barrier arm of the specified car park.

Parking Coupons

Parking coupons may be purchased for use on any metered space (excluding the metered parks at the rear of the Turitea Library) throughout the two sites and each voucher is valid for one full day. Coupons can be purchased from the Help Desk for $90.00 and are available in books of 20 coupons.

Discretionary parking

From time to time students or staff may experience health, medical or extraordinary circumstances that result in them requiring temporary parking, for a limited period of time close to their office. Where possible, FM will endeavour to accommodate the needs of the individual.

However a medical certificate may be required in order to facilitate this request.

Please note that women experiencing medical issues with pregnancy are also entitled to apply for temporary, short term parking close to their office and as with other requests where possible, FM will endeavour to accommodate the needs of the individual.

However a medical certificate may be required in order to facilitate this request.
