Overnight stays and camping

No overnight stays, or camping, in any vehicle self-contained or non-self-contained is permitted in NMIT car parks. The local Councils have information on where freedom camping is allowed in their region and other camping options. Please contact SANITI to discuss your situation if this affects you as they may have options for assistance.

In Nelson, there are also Nelson City Council (NCC) parking areas in the residential neighbourhood around campusSome NCC parks display designated parking times. Due to parking pressures in Nelson, both NMIT and NCC monitor their car parking areas and infringement tickets are issued to those not abiding by the rules. Avoid getting fines by being aware of the NMIT parking rules that are displayed at all NMIT car park entrances or using alternative transport methods.

Bicycle racks, bus timetables and other parking options

NMIT also has a number of bicycle racks and the eBus timetable is worth checking out for cheap bus fares around the city and as far out as Richmond, they even have an iOS app! There are also a few private car parks, including the Masonic Lodge on Nile Street, where for a fee you can park all day on weekdays.
