The areas available for parking purposes are limited and, as a result, demands for space exceed the supply. Parking may be available in McIntyre garage for students who reside in areas where public transportation is not readily accessible (e.g. Laval, west island, south shore, north shore) or those with children under the age of 5 years. Any such request is at the discretion of the manager and the student will be asked to provide a proof of residence if such authorization is granted, as well as a proof of enrolment letter (student ID card is not sufficient). The parking application form for students is available for download on our forms page.
Student parking renewals are also subject to availability. If a renewal is authorized, the student must submit a proof of enrolment letter (student ID card is not sufficient).
Special parking arrangements are also available for students with disabilities - click here for further information.
