University vacations

With the exception of Carpark 31 (Nedlands site) and Carpark 37 (Oral Health Centre car park), Yellow student parking areas are available to non-permit holders during University vacations.

University vacations do not include Non-teaching Study Breaks, Pre-examination Study Breaks and Exam Periods.
