Staff and Faculty Parking

Go to the Employee Parking and Eco Pass channel in PAWS.

Parking can only be cancelled effective on the 15th or last day of a month.

Cancellation form must be submitted at least one day prior to the cancellation date. Parking permit(s) must be returned after the last day of parking.

Once you cancel your parking there is no guarantee that you will get your stall back immediately on request. You would have to put your name back on the waiting list and if a stall in your preferred lot is available, it will be re-assigned where possible.

Unless specified you will be removed from all waiting lists upon cancellation.

Student Parking

You can return your permit for a refund of any full months remaining on the permit, less a $20 administration fee. Once a month has begun, you will not receive a refund for that month. There are no refunds for the first, or last month of a studnet permit.

If an employee has parking on campus, in a gated lot, and wishes to share their parking, they can contact the parking office to obtain an additional parking pass(es).   

A deposit of $25.00 plus GST per pass is payable upon permit pick up. This is refundable upon returning the additional pass(es). Only the employee to whom the parking has been assigned can request / purchase and/or return these additional pass(es).   

Any payment collected from the employee you are sharing with cannot exceed the monthly parking fee, as it is against the bylaws to profit from shared parking.  

Parking permits must be properly displayed while parked otherwise a ticket may be issued.  

The pass(es) are “pooled” by Parking Services into a group. Any attempt to have more than one pass within this “pool” used at the same time is subject to fines for all vehicles in the pool that are found to be in violation. 

Parking Services does not support finding employees to share additional “pooled” pass(es) with.

For additional information please contact Parking and Transportation Services.
