Accessibility and parking for staff

The University works to ensure that all of our campuses are accessible for people with impairments. If you have access concerns or challenges please feel free to contact a member of the Equity team at equity@auckland.ac.nz.

Accessible parking

Parking is very limited on all of the University of Auckland's campuses, and particularly in the central city. There are a small number of accessible /mobility car parks available for students and staff who already have a Mobility Parking Permit from CCS Disability Action.

Staff who have permanent disabilities and carparking@auckland.ac.nz.

Staff with temporary impairments, who require assistance with accessing University accessible car parking should follow the process below.

Process for obtaining a Temporary Permit

Staff who currently hold a University parking permit

If you currently have a parking permit, but require temporary mobility parking either at the same car park or one closer to your place of work, email the following to temporarypark@auckland.ac.nz:

If the application is approved:

  • A temporary accessible parking permit will be issued.
  • While parking in University accessible car parks, relevant parking permits must be displayed at all times. i.e.
    • Both your University annual parking permit plus a Mobility Parking Permit from CCS Disability Action, or
    • Your University annual parking permit plus the temporary accessible parking permit.

Staff who do not hold a University parking permit

Staff who currently don’t have a parking permit, but require mobility parking should email the following to temporarypark@auckland.ac.nz:

If the application is approved:

  • Take the application form to a student hub for payment (current rates can be found on the application form). 
  • Send the receipt to temporarypark@auckland.ac.nz 
  • A temporary accessible parking permit will be issued

While parking in University accessible car parks, the temporary accessible parking permit must be displayed at all times.
 

Note: If it is anticipated that accessible parking will be required for  longer than eight weeks, the staff member should apply to CCS Disability Action for a Mobility Permit and carparking@auckland.ac.nz for campus parking for one year.

 

Braille maps

The University of Auckland and the Blind Foundation have partnered to develop braille maps of the University’s campuses. If you would like to access a map please contact Student Disability Services by emailing disability@auckland.ac.nz.
