Car parking

Parking is at a premium around the University of Otago, Christchurch campus and the surrounding streets, as this is in the central city.

Public parking around campus

On-street parking is available around the campus with parking limits from five minutes to two hours. Parking wardens are active in the area, so take a note of the parking limits to ensure that you aren't ticketed.
