Postgraduate student parking

All students registered for a second or postgraduate qualification qualify for postgraduate parking. Honours and master’s degree students qualify for parking on campus after 14:00, and doctoral students qualify for 24-hour parking on campus. All postgraduate students need to apply online via the UP Portal (Student Centre), after which they may collect a parking disc from the Parking Division in the Student Service Centre. Students will only be allowed to park on campus if they are in possession of a parking disc.

Undergraduate Students

Undergraduate students may park in designated areas outside the Hatfield Campus. Parking is extremely limited. The Tshwane Metro Police will issue fines to students who park illegally on sidewalks. The University cannot take any responsibility for these fines. 

The official student parking areas of the University are located as follows:

  • corner of Burnett and Festival streets (H17)
  • corner of Herold and Duxbury streets (H29)
  • corner of Herold Street and Lynnwood Road (H30)

These are enclosed areas that are patrolled by authorised security guards. To gain access to these areas, students must produce their student cards.

Engineering 3 Parkade

The Engineering 3 Parkade is only accessible via the entrance on University Road. Access control for students is on a prepaid credit or pay-on-foot cash basis, as is the case at other parkades. Payments can be made in cash or by means of a credit card at an automatic payment station. A prepaid credit system is also available and students can open an account at the Katanga Parking Management control room on level 2 of the Parkade. 

The following rates will apply to casual (student) parking on weekdays from 06:00 to 18:00:

  • 0–2 hours: R5
  • 2–4 hours: R8
  • 4–6 hours: R10
  • 6+ hours:  R20 

A flat rate of R8 will apply from 18:00 to 06:00 on weekdays and over weekends. This will not apply when the parkade is used for special events. The penalty for cars left in the Parkade for more than 24 hours is R250. The penalty for a lost ticket is R50.
 

Parking for persons with disabilities

Persons who are permanently disabled can apply for parking discs at the Parking Division in the Student Service Centre. Please note that a written motivation from your doctor must be submitted along with your application. 

  • The accessible gate at Prospect Street gate will be open for students with disabilities, especially those who are in wheelchairs. (24/7)
  • The South Street gate (behind Law and Centenary) will be open for blind students and those with guide dogs. (06:00–18:00)

Green Route Usage

Security officers will accompany students/staff on foot from 18:00 to 06:00 daily from the following points on the various campuses:

  • Hatfield Campus – In front of the Absa ATM next to the Merensky Library
  • Prinshof Campus – In front of the HW Snyman Building
  • Groenkloof Campus – Between the Administration Building and the Auditorium
  • Kalafong Campus – In front of the Klinikala Building

Students who do not have access to a telephone to call the 24-hour Operational Management Centre should go to the security official on duty to arrange for an escort.

If you need any assistance, please contact the 24-hour Operational Management Centre at           012 420 2310/2760, or the 24-hour UP Operational Manager on duty at 083 654 0476.
