Parking and Traffic Bylaws

Parking violations are enforced under the University of Saskatchewan Act, 1995 (Section 100).

Parking Policies

The following policies have been established by Parking and Transportation Services and approved by the University of Saskatchewan Board of Governors:

Permit Refund Policy

REFUND POLICY for Student Permits and Resident Student Permits

  1. Only full calendar months will be considered for refund. Once a month has begun, that month will not be refunded.
  2. There are no refunds for the first or last month of a permit and there will be an administration fee.
  3. Please be advised that if you purchased parking on a long term basis, you will lose the benefit or lower price of paying long term. Refunds will be calculated for remaining months only and will be based on the monthly price (not the long term price) and will include an administration fee.

Out of Province Vehicle Policy

The University of Saskatchewan has the legal authority to tow or boot (see below) all vehicles for outstanding violations. All costs are the responsibility of the user.

Vehicles which are not registered in the province of Saskatchewan are subject to Saskatchewan legislation. 

To appeal a violation through the Saskatchewan Provincial Court, you must provide the vehicle registration that includes the registered owner's name, full address and vehicle information to Parking and Transportation Services, 72 Campus Drive.  This information must be provided before the first violation is 14 days past the date of the initial ticket.  If you drive an out of province licensed vehicle, keep violations current in order to avoid this consequence, added cost and inconvenience.

Towing and Booting Policy

The University of Saskatchewan has the legal authority to Tow and/or Boot (immobilize) any vehicle that has outstanding violations (even if they are not in violation at the time). Out of Province vehicles (see above) are subject to Saskatchewan legislation.

Booting is a locking device placed on the wheel of the vehicle that prevents the vehicle from moving. The boots are removed once all outstanding violations are paid. Booting is used as an alternative to towing the vehicle and can be used if the vehicle is inaccessible to towing or the officer deems it necessary. Attempting to drive the vehicle with the boot or tamper with boot in any way is illegal. Only Parking and Transportation Services employees can remove the boot. After 24 hours of booting, the university may deem it necessary to tow the vehicle to a compound on campus or hold the vehicle with the contract towing firm's compound. All fees and charges associated with the towing and storage of the vehicle are the responsibility of the vehicle owner.

In order to avoid being towed or booted, please keep violations paid up to date. 

If your vehicle has been towed or booted, please contact Parking and Transportation Services.

Snow Clearing Policy

Our goal is to manage the removal of snow on campus efficiently and effectively. Whenever possible, snow clearing will take place evenings and/or weekend.  If determined necessary to have vehicles moved from the resident parking Lots U and W, an email communication will be sent to give at least 12 hours advance notice.

It is the responsibility of all users to find alternate parking (at their own expense) during this period. Vehicles that do not exit will be moved at the owner's expense.  Free weekend parking options can be found on the night parking map.
