Transport Assistance

Parking, public transport and more. Find out how we can help get you on your way to uni in times when finances are tight.

Struggling to cover transport costs?

University can be expensive and books, stationery and transport can become very costly – very quickly!

Experiencing financial hardship can make travelling to and from campus difficult, whether it is through public transport or via vehicle. For Cloud students who are required to travel to campus for intensives, the potential costs of transport and accommodation can become extremely overwhelming and stressful.

DUSA provides the Transport Assistance Program which is accessible for all students experiencing financial hardship and provides the following financial assistance opportunities:

  • Subsidised or fully funded annual parking permits
  • Public Transport Assistance – 30 Day Travel Pass valid for travel on all public transport in metropolitan Melbourne (Zone 1+2) and regional buses that use myki. This does not include travel on VLine services.
  • Cloud Intensive Travel Support –a maximum reimbursement of $350 which was used for travel or accommodation (available once per year).

To lodge an application students are required to provide information in the comments section and evidence of their financial situation including a budget form via the online form.

You will be contacted within 5 working days with the outcome of your application and if successful, the next steps required.

As DUSA has a limited number of permits and assistance packages on offer, students deemed to have the greatest need and who have clearly demonstrated financial hardship will be offered transport assistance.
