All students interested in parking for the 2021/22 school year must apply through the online Parking Sale including those registered to live in USask Residences. Availability is limited.
PLEASE NOTE: Only apply for this sale if you are needing parking for the entire year and are committed to coming to campus in the fall. This is a random selection and applying early does not ensure a better chance of being selected for a space. 

After September 13 please contact Parking Services to inquire about availability of parking and to arrange in person pickup.  If you need parking for term 2 please contact us in December to see what may be available. Parking Services will be closed from Dec 24 - Jan 3.

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 starting June 1st. During that period, applications may be changed or withdrawn at any time.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 Aug. 23rd, 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 Online Sale and were NOT allocated a parking permit. You are eligible ONLY if you applied to the Online 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 Online 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.
