Car parking FAQs

Despite the growing number of parking infringement notices issued over the last 2 years (over 1,900), Bond has not been able to enforce a penalty associated with any infringement. Our control over our own parking areas has therefore been ineffective.

It is necessary to have appropriate oversight and penalties in place to ensure that our community parks in the right places so as not to inconvenience or obstruct emergency vehicles, access to disability parking or obstruct others due to parking in a manner that puts car park users in danger.  There has also been an impact upon those allocated restricted parking spaces which have been provided in recognition that their University duties will require them to drive off campus from time to time when that dedicated space is occupied by an unauthorised vehicle when they return to work.

The implementation of the control plan will have no effect on those who park correctly.  Those who do not park appropriately and do not comply with the parking terms and conditions may be issued with a parking fee tax invoice of $55.00 to be paid within 7 days per clause 4 of terms and conditions of use

All vehicles entering site are considered to have accepted the terms and conditions of parking on Bond University property.  Campus Security will carry out standard patrols and any vehicle identified as breaching the T&C’s may be issued a warning, or parking fee tax invoice for the amount of $55.00

All vehicles must be registered with security.   Their office is located on ground floor of Building 10 contact # 5595 1234 and owner’s details will be added to the database and a parking permit will be issued.  The permit should be affixed to the lower passenger side of the windscreen. 

Failure to do may result in a warning or parking fee tax invoice for the amount of $55.00

Make payment to the contracted provider of parking supervision, PriPark Private Parking Management via online, phone, or mail as identified on the ticket issued within 7 days or an additional administrative fee of $43.00 will be applied. If this is not paid within a further 7 days, subsequent penalties will apply for non-payment of the fee plus recovery costs.

Information is detailed at Car Park Terms and Conditions of Use signage on display at both points of entry to the University campus.

If your vehicle is dangerously parked in a way that potentially impacts the safety of others, Security will make every attempt to contact you via the contact information that you have provided on your registration form. If Security is unable to contact you to move your vehicle a towing company will be engaged to do so. 

Charges for vehicle recovery start at approximately $400 (paid to towing company) and will escalate, subject to length of time your vehicle is left at the impound yard.
