At Flinders you get what you park for

Flinders U is hiking the cost of parking for staff and – (you might want to sit down if easily shocked) – the campus branch of the National Tertiary Education Union is outraged. The university is leaving student parking prices alone, at $100 a semester, but is doubling the cost of a half-year permit for staff to $200. This, the comrades complain will hurt low-paid workers worse, whicb is fair enough.

The university responds there are hour/daily/monthly options, so people can pay for the parking they need and the “parking experience’ will improve, with real-time signage stating places available in a car-park, app based payment, and did they tell you it is designed to “reinforce our student centred ethos.”  Queue complaints from postgrad students who get a bit of teaching.
