Private vehicles


Private vehicles used for University purposes

The University provides no cover for privately owned motor vehicles.

If you are required to use a vehicle for work purposes it is recommended that you use a University-owned vehicle.  In the event that a University vehicle is not available, you should consider an external hire vehicle before you take your own vehicle.

 If you are unable to do so and use your own vehicle you can have your costs reimbursed in accordance with La Trobe University's Human Resources Manual - Allowances & Specific Purposes Payments, Section 12.7.

Private vehicles damaged in University carpark

Damage to private vehicles/motorcycles parked in the University's car parking areas are not covered under University insurance. As stated on the La Trobe University Car Parking disclaimer - "Vehicles are parked at own risk". See parking permits.

It is the responsibility of staff/students to insure their own private vehicles/motorcycles.
