Staff parking permits

The number of parking spaces on the downtown campus is limited.

Staff members interested in purchasing a permit must complete and submit the Parking permit eligibility web form. Requests for parking are subject to approval by the manager.

Annual permits for permanent staff members

Permanent staff members authorized for permits can pay for parking at the annual monthly rate. Annual permits are issued for the year (May 1 to April 30) and are automatically renewed unless notice of cancellation or suspension is given. The applicant must complete and return the signed payroll deduction authorization form and staff application form to the parking office to have the parking fees deducted from their paycheck.

Deductions occur in the following manner:

  • Employees who are paid weekly would see a deduction on their weekly paycheck for the week before, from Saturday to Sunday.
  • Employees who are paid bi-weekly on Thursdays or Fridays would see a deduction on each paycheck for the days within the specified pay period.

Annual permits cannot be started and stopped for vacations, holiday periods, and other such reasons however they can be suspended for university approved leaves which are at least one month in duration, such as medical leaves, parental leaves, or sabbaticals. If cancelling for a reason other than the aforementioned, there is no guarantee of parking re-instatement at a later date. Cancelled or suspended permits must be returned to the parking office. Parking cannot be cancelled or suspended retro-actively.

Temporary parking permits for permanent and casual staff members

Permanent and casual staff members authorized for permits can purchase temporary parking permits issued on a weekly or monthly basis at the monthly and weekly rates. Monthly permits are sold by calendar month and a maximum of 3 months can be purchased at one time. Weekly permits are issued for a period of seven consecutive days from the date of commencement.

Temporary permits cannot be post-dated or issued prior to the date of commencement. They can be paid for by cash, check, debit card, Visa, MasterCard or American Express.
