QUT provides customers who ride a motocycle with both free and paid motorcycle parking options.
Paid Motorcycle Parking
Transport Systems provides half-year and full-year motorcycle parking permits for the following locations.
|Gardens Point||Level 2, S Block|
|Level 2, Z Block|
|Level 1, C Block|
|Kelvin Grove||Level 1, Q Block|
|Level 2, Q Block|
|Level 1, F Block|
Customers with a valid motorcycle parking permit can access the reserved parking areas for the campus specified on their permit. Customers are required to record their entry and exit into/from the parking area by touching their QUT Identificaton Card on the gate controller. Our parking system will check permit details and automatically open the gate.
- If the entry or exit gate fails to open, please use the intercom to contact our Central Monitoring Station for assistance. Do not ride around the boom gate.
- Once the gate opens, please ride your motorcycle directly over the magnetic sensor on the far side of the gate (the sensor is embedded in the concrete, but can be seen by the rectangular cut marks). Activating this sensor will ensure our parking system records your entry into the parking facility (as opposed to reversing away). Failing to ride directly over the magnetic sensor may cause our system to block your subsequent exit (see next point).
- Our parking system is designed to ensure each entry is followed by an exit, and vice versa. If your motorcycle is shown as entering a parking facility, an exit will need to be recorded before your next entry will be permitted. Any entry or exit which violates this rule will display a wrong presence message on the gate controller. If this occurs, please use the intercom contact our Central Monitoring Station for assistance. Do not ride around the boom gate.
Any motorcycle rider who is observed riding around a closed boom gate will be issued an infringement notice for failing to obey a traffic control device other than a speed limit sign. Absent any factual errors on the notice, infringements issued for this offence are unlikely to be waived.
Motorcycles as Casual Parking Customers
Motorcycle customers can also access any of our Casual Parking options. However, customers should note that motorcycles which are parked in a Casual Parking facility are required to pay the standard parking fee; customers who are observed riding around the entry/exit boom-gate of a casual parking facility may be issued with an infringement.
Free Motorcycle Parking
Outdoor motorcyle parking is available free-of-charge at the following locations.
|Gardens Point||Level 1, C Block|
|Under Bridge *|
|Kelvin Grove||K Block|
|G Block Laneway|
|S Block (Rear)|
|M Block (Rear)|
|Creative Industries Precinct||Lot 5|
Additional free motorcycle parking is also located under the Captain Cook Bridge, though this is provided by Brisbane City Council on land which is not controlled by QUT.
