Using your parking permit

Your account details (including car registration details) can be managed by logging in to vPermit online.

You may have up to three cars registered against your parking but only one vehicle at a time can be nominated as the active vehicle. When parking on campus ensure that the active vehicle registration matches the registration of the vehicle you have parked on campus.

You can easily update your active registration via vPermit. This can be done by either logging into the vPermit site or downloading the ANU vPermit app to your iPhone or Android smart phone. Simply search for 'vpermit app' on the Apple App Store or Google Play, install the app and log in using your university ID.
