Generic parking statement:
NMIT have a limited number of car parks available on the Nelson, Marlborough and Richmond campuses free of charge. These are not guaranteed and are offered on a ‘first come, first served’ basis. You will need to display a valid parking permit which is available at enrolment.
In Nelson, there are also Nelson City Council (NCC) parking areas(external link) in the residential neighbourhood around campus. Some 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. NMIT also have a number of bicycle racks and the NBus(external link) timetable is worth checking out for cheap bus fares around the city and as far out as Richmond, they even have an iOS app(external link)! There are also a few private car parks, including the Masonic Lodge on Nile Street, where for a fee you can park all day weekdays. Plan your travel to get to classes on time without any stress.
