Application Process


  • You must have a valid NSID number to complete the application in PAWS. 
  • You must be registered in at least one USask class or at an affiliated college by the application deadline.
  • Only one permit per student number.


  • Applications are accepted May 1, 8:00 am to Aug 23, 10:00 am. During that period, applications may be changed or withdrawn at any time.
  • Choose only those lots which you are prepared to accept and list your choices in order of preference. 
  • Once you have been allocated a student permit there will be no option to change to another lot at any time.

Commuting Students from Outside the City Limits
You must apply for a permit through the online sale. If you are not allocated a permit you may come to Parking and Transportation Services on August 26, to apply for a stall in Lot 15 or Stadium Parkade.  This is on a first-come, first-served basis as there are a limited number of permits.  

Second Chance
Student permits that were not picked up by the deadline date for the Online Sale will be allocated by a computer generated selection to those that applied to the Parking Sale and were NOT allocated a parking permit. You are eligible ONLY if you applied to the Parking Sale and were not allocated a permit, not because you did not receive your choice. 

Waiting List
Students who paid the $20.00 application fee and entered  the Parking Sale and were not allocated a parking permit will automatically be added to the waitlist and contacted by email if a space is available.

Ready to apply?

$20.00 non-refundable application fee will be charged for all applications. If you wish to withdraw your application at any time, the fee still applies.
