Speed limits and fines

The campus speed limit is 40kph, aside from car parks and sections along Discovery Way, where the speed limit is 25kph.

You are required to observe the speed limits at all times. Speed detection and traffic management activities are used for the safety of University patrons. Fines may be issued to people who exceed the speed limits or breach the University Parking and Traffic By-Laws in any way.

For the safety and welfare of the University community, pedestrian crossings are strategically positioned along the inner campus roadways and car parks. Please ensure that you allow pedestrians to safely cross and do not overtake another vehicle on the approach to a pedestrian crossing.

Our Perth campus is home to a vast array of wildlife, including some endangered species. Please be mindful of this when using our internal roadways.
