Alternative parking and transport

There are other areas to park in Manukau if you choose. Check out the Auckland Transport website to look at different options. Otherwise, MIT recommends the use of public transport when you can. Auckland Transport has a great transport website to help with your planning.

  • Public Transport – Thirteen bus routes operate from Manukau Bus Station and the station beneath the MIT campus is the terminus for Auckland’s Eastern trainline. MIT are continuing to work with Auckland Transport to promote the use of public transport and further information on services are available on the following link.
  • Park and Ride – MIT provides free parking in its multi-storey carpark on Ōtara campus accessed through Gate 11. For our students with young children, this carpark is conveniently located next to MIT Children’s Education Centre. Bus services to MIT Manukau depart from the stop opposite 52 Ōtara Rd.
  • Public Parking – Manukau has many parking options including Ronwood Avenue with a capacity of 678 spaces. The following websites have further information on parking in Manukau.

Visitor parking

There are visitor parking allocations at all three campus’s as per the map, however, some processes may differ depending on the visitor and circumstances.

General visitor parking

General visitors are classed as external people visiting MIT for meetings or workshops and parking is generally free. Visitors will be allocated a space in an area rather than an individual carpark number. 

  1. Give at least two hours notice for processing.
  2. Email with the following information:
    1. Date, time and amount of time required
    2. Licence plate number
    3. Campus.
  3. Customer service help will email back with a confirmation.

For those users who “drop-in” quickly, and don’t want to register for a visitors carpark, you can use the parking bays located on Manukau Station Road.

Event visitor parking

Event visitors are external people who visit MIT for an event or if they have booked a room to use. This is generally used for the Pasifika Community Centre and Ngā Kete Wānanga Marae and need to pay for parking. This is not available at Manukau or TechPark due to demand.

Disabled visitors

Disabled visitors will follow the same process as above including paying for event parking while using the allocated disabled carparks.

Parking cameras

From 7 June 2021, parking cameras will be in operation at our Manukau and TechPark campus’s which use license plate recognition technology that can now check your vehicle registration number against any payments made via the payment machines or the payment app on your phone and users will have 20 minutes to process the payments required.  Any breach notices which may apply will now be sent directly to the address registered against the vehicle. For vehicles that are illegally parked, a breach notice will continue to be put on the windscreen of the vehicle.

Parking cameras are also installed in the visitors carpark at our Manukau campus. Any users must advise their vehicle registration number before entering the carpark by emailing Potential students visiting MIT for the first time may park in the visitors parking area but must register their vehicle registration number at the AskMe! centre or the TechPark reception area within 20 minutes of arriving.

For those users who “drop-in” quickly, and don’t want to register for a visitors carpark, you can use the parking bays located on Manukau Station Road.


As the new parking solutions take place, there is a need for enforcement to ensure demand and agreed processes are managed. Enforcement is managed by Intellico and the parking ambassadors will be patrolling the carparks during the day to ensure compliance.

Enforcement will apply in the following (but not limited to) circumstances:

  • Non-payment of parking in the general parking areas of Ōtara north, TechPark and Manukau
  • Parking in reserved areas including visitors and staff reserved spaces
  • Parking in unmarked areas such as footpaths, entryways, grass berms.

Comprehensive signage is (will be) installed to let our users know where to park.

For any users that are non-compliant with the conditions of parking, a $65 breach notice will be issued.  If you wish to challenge the breach you can go to the LPR enforcement services website and navigate through to the MIT fine payments page. MIT reserve the right to excluded and/or tow users from any MIT carparks due to non-payment of breach notices.

If you would like to extend the payment date of the breach notice, you can contact and advise the breach notice number and your vehicle registration and request an extension.
