Semester 2 parking permit refunds

In light of the latest extended lockdown across Victoria and the impact this is having on students returning to campus in Semester 2 2021, La Trobe University will be offering parking permit refunds.

Students at the Melbourne and Bendigo Campuses (including residents who live on campus) who have purchased a yearly or half-yearly v-Permit in 2021 will receive the following refunds:

  • Yearly permit: 50% of the permit price will be refunded
  • Half-yearly permits (valid from 1/07/2021 – 31/12/2021): 100% of the permit price will be refunded 

Refunds will be automatically applied and will be returned via the original method of payment (i.e. debit or credit card). Refunds will take approximately three weeks to process and for the funds to be returned. Thank you for your patience while these refunds are processed.

Are you a La Trobe Melbourne student?

La Trobe Melbourne students who paid in person for their permits will be contacted directly by the La Trobe Traffic and Parking office (, as the permit holder’s bank details are required before the refund can be processed via a bank transfer.

Parking fees for the remainder of 2021

More good news! Parking at Melbourne and Bendigo campuses will be free of charge until the end of 2021. Parking at the Albury-Wodonga, Mildura and Shepparton campuses is free.
