Are you a learner at NMIT? If so, you can park your car in the campus car park where your programme is delivered.
Please note: Car parks aren't guaranteed and offered on a 'first-come, first-served' basis.
If you are a Nelson Campus learner, you need to ensure that you display a valid NMIT parking permit on your windscreen which provides access between 8am and 5pm on weekdays (Monday to Friday).
Parking permits are available for pick up at the Information and Enrolment desk (A block) once your enrolment is complete. Only one permit per learner will be issued.
Learners studying night classes will not be issued a permit (permits are not required for parking after 5pm).
Learners studying on block courses will be issued with a temporary car parking permit on request, please email firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like one sent out to you before your block course.
Standard parking rules apply and these are displayed on nearby signs.
Parking is monitored and infringements for failure to follow parking rules or failure to display a parking permit may incur a $65.00 infringement.
Richmond Campus learners
If you are a Richmond Campus learner, you do not need to display a parking permit. If you need to park at Nelson Campus to access support services, you will need to display a temporary car parking permit (issued for a maximum of two weeks) on your dashboard obtainable from the Information and Enrolments desk or from the Library.
If you are an eCampus learner, you do not need to display a parking permit as you are studying online. If you need to park at Nelson Campus to access support services, you will need to display a temporary car parking permit (issued for a maximum of two weeks) on your dashboard obtainable from the Information and Enrolments desk or from the Library.
Overnight stays and camping
No overnight stays, or camping, in any vehicle self-contained or non-self-contained is permitted in NMIT car parks. The local Councils have information on where freedom camping is allowed in their region and other camping options. Please contact SANITI to discuss your situation if this affects you as they may have options for assistance.
In Nelson, there are also Nelson City Council (NCC) parking areas in the residential neighbourhood around campus. Some NCC parks display designated parking times. Due to parking pressures in Nelson, both NMIT and NCC monitor their car parking areas and infringement tickets are issued to those not abiding by the rules. Avoid getting fines by being aware of the NMIT parking rules that are displayed at all NMIT car park entrances or using alternative transport methods.
Bicycle racks, bus timetables and other parking options
NMIT also has a number of bicycle racks and the NBus timetable is worth checking out for cheap bus fares around the city and as far out as Richmond, they even have an iOS app! There are also a few private car parks, including the Masonic Lodge on Nile Street, where for a fee you can park all day on weekdays.
Plan your travel to get to classes on time without any stress.
