JCU Campus Parking and Permit Information

For the remainder of the calendar year 2020, parking will be free on both Townsville and Cairns campuses. This only applies to formal, marked car parks. Infringements will still be issued for parking on the grass, parking contrary to parking signs and parking in reserved parking bays.

Parking at JCU's Cairns and Townsville campuses is regulated under the James Cook University Act 1997. Parking signage on campus follows the Manual of Uniform Traffic Control Devices and licensed drivers are deemed to understand this signage.

Queensland traffic regulations apply to all Australian campuses 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. Speed limits and other road rules are enforced by Queensland Police.
