Vehicle parking

In order to assist patients, clients and visitors to access Univeristy Hospital Geelong we would like to make you aware that vehicle parking opportunities around the hospital are limited, and consist mainly of City of Greater Geelong controlled, metered parking, with time restrictions ranging from between ½ an hour to two hours.

Parking officers regularly patrol the streets in these areas and patients and visitors are at risk of receiving parking infringement notices if their vehicles are parked illegally.

As it is not always possible to know how much time you may be required to remain at the hospital may we suggest that you take one of the following steps to avoid the risk of this happening to you:

  • Ask a family member or friend to drive you to the hospital, and when you are ready to leave, arrange for them to pick you up.
  • Ask a family member or friend to accompany you to the hospital in order that a vehicle can be moved if necessary.

Some circumstances make it difficult to monitor the nearby parking meters. If you get a council parking ticket and need to appeal it on compassionate grounds, contact our Consumer Liaison Officer, who will send you an Attendance Validation Form. You then send this form, along with your appeal, the City of Greater Geelong. The council will assess your appeal. The validation form does not guarantee an automatic waiver.
