If you're driving, park on campus for free in the dedicated parking areas - just follow the signs. 

If you're familiar with ANU and our parking areas, be aware that with so many guests expected on campus for Open Day, some of our parking areas will be closed to limit the number of cars on campus and increase pedestrian safety.
