Things to remember -

Cathedral Parking

Dear students,

Navitas Professional Institute (NPI) would like to remind students that it is not appropriate to park in the St John s Cathedral Carpark across the road from campus. Cathedral staff have made it clear that they actively implement their tow-away policy and that no further warning will be given.

If you wish to drive in to campus you can find parking details for the Cathedral Square Carpark here. Central train station is also just a short walk away from campus and there are many bus routes that go past our college.

Thank you,

NPI Administration - Brisbane
