Manukau campus parking

Parking times: Monday – Friday (6am – 4pm)

Outside of the above times, parking within these areas is free of charge.

New student parking

There is a requirement that new students are able to park for free in visitors’ areas where Ask Me! offices are located. This will be restricted to 30 minutes so they can talk about MIT study options with an Ask Me! agent.

Ask Me! agents will be given access to the parking system to enable quickly allocating space to a visitor potential student. This will vary per campus.

Ask Me! agents at the Manukau campus will have access to process eight concurrent spaces in the separate visitors' carpark located at the side of the building. These spaces will be part of the entire visitors’ allocation and the number may be reduced depending on demand.

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.

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. Lisence plate number
    3. Campus.
  3. Customer service help will email back with a confirmation.
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.

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 Otara north, TechPark and Manukau
  • Parking in reserved areas including visitors and staff reserved spaces
  • Parking in unmarked areas such as footpaths, entry ways, 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. To pay the parking fine, you can do so by clicking the button below.
