Student Vehicle Access Permit


Student UKZN Vehicle Access Permits are issued from the ID Card & Parking Permit Offices and are valid for the year of study. All students who wish to enter and/or park their vehicles on any of the UKZN campuses, are required to have a vehicle access permit for their vehicle.

Before a student can apply they must have completed their Faculty Registration and have a valid UKZN Student Card, as well as valid login credentials before they can apply for a UKZN Vehicle Access Permit.

Please note that there are costs associated with the permit (outlined below) and this amount will be posted to your Student Fee Account. (PLEASE DO NOT PAY THIS FEE AT THE CASHIERS)

Note: All vehicle access permit applications are made on-line via the Traffic Portal from either on campus or off campus. Once students have made their application, they may proceed to their nearest RMS ID Card & Parking Permit Office to collect.
