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. This includes the visitor carparks outside the Pasifika Community Centre and Ngā Kete Wānanga Marae. Visitors will be allocated a space in an area rather than an individual carpark number.

  2. Email cshelp@manukau.ac.nz with the following information:
    1. Date, time and amount of time required
    2. Lisence plate number
    3. Campus
    4. Which visitor's carpark area.
  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.

Please see 'How to pay for parking' section below for details.

Enforcement

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.
