USC Sunshine Coast Only

Sunshine Coast Council parking inspectors enforce parking regulations on campus and in surrounding streets. Failure to purchase a current eTicket or ePermit will result in an infringement notice being issued.

Park only in designated areas, not in restricted areas such as service roads, driveways, building entrances or grassed areas. If you are not parked in a marked bay, you are parked illegally and risk an infringement notice.

Refer to the Sunshine Coast Council website for further information in relation to the enforcement of parking penalties, including penalty amounts, how to pay and how to appeal.

The University is not able to enter into any dispute over a parking infringement notice or resulting fine.
