Application Process

Eligibility

  • 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.

Application

  • Applications are accepted from May 1, 2023 - August 18, 2023. During that period, applications may be changed or withdrawn at any time.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 in a lot you chose in the sale 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 Parking Sale. If you are not allocated a permit in the First Chance Sale you may come to Parking and Transportation Services on Aug. 21, 2023 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 Sale
Student permits that were not picked up by the deadline date for the First Chance Sale will be allocated by a computer-generated selection to those that applied to the Parking Sale and were NOT allocated a parking permit in the First Chance Sale. 

Upgrade List
Students who paid the $20.00 application fee and entered the Parking Sale and were not allocated a parking permit in a lot of their choice in either the First Chance or Second Chance sales will be allocated a stall in either Lot 15 or Lot 20. They will automatically be added to an upgrade list. Any permits released by or returned to Parking and Transportation Services will be offered to those on the upgrade list throughout the year.

In the 2022-2023 academic year over 400 students were offered a parking lot upgrade through this process.

$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.
