The University of Western Australia is privileged to offer a unique and beautiful setting. Its grounds and many of its buildings are listed on the national heritage register. In welcoming you onto the campus we require you to respect our built and natural environment and to cooperate with other visitors, staff and students.
1) Your Photography Ticket
a) The Crawley campus is private property. Your Photography Ticket is your permit to take photographs on the University’s campus for the duration you have purchased on the date you have chosen.
b) Each Photography Ticket entitles you to one hour on campus. If you require more than one hour, you must purchase a ticket for each hour, or part-hour you need. For instance, two tickets are required for a 90-minute photography session.
c) Photography Tickets are only valid for the date selected. Please note that the time (12.01am or 5.30pm) on the permit is a default time. You are welcome to come on campus at any time on the date of your permit on weekends, and from 5.30pm onwards on weekdays.
d) Photography Tickets are non-refundable.
e) Photography Tickets are not offered during exams and on days where University activity takes precedence.
f) There are only a fixed number of Photography Tickets available each day.
g) You must present your Photography Ticket if requested by any member of University staff or security. Failure to present a valid Photography Ticket will lead to you being escorted from the campus unless one is purchased online immediately.
