Parking Permits


Due to the complicated nature of the permit renewals and credits being applied to students’ parking accounts, on-line services for 18-19 permit renewals are not available. If you wish to renew your parking permit you can do so by mail, fax or in person. We encourage you to do this as soon as possible to ensure your lot preference.

Parking Services regrets any inconvenience this may cause.

Parking permits are available to all community members on a first come, first served basis. Parking Services encourages early purchases for the availability of space and to avoid line ups.

Please Note:  Garages and Reserved Parking Lots are not available unless you are renewing the same permit that expired at the end of the 2018 Winter term.   If you would like to place your name on the waiting list, e-mail with your name, address, phone number and lot choice.

There are a limited number of Reserved & Garage spaces that can be purchased by community members for the summer months only but are not renewable for the academic year.  For availability please contact Parking Services.  Monthly Summer Reserved/Garage permits are not available to purchase on-line.

Most permit parking lots are gated and provide a guaranteed space within the lot.  The following categories of permit lots are available based on location and rates.  Find parking permit rates here.
