Parking and Transportation

Other Transportation


If you have a disability, medical condition, or temporary injury that requires proximity parking, you may be able to obtain a permit or day passes for parking on campus. Eligibility is determined in accordance with SAAQ provincial accessibility parking standards. Contact McGill Transport for rates. 

Improving Accessibility at McGill

The University allocates budget each year for projects which aim to make McGill facilities more accessible. This budget and process are overseen by the Universal Capital Access Working Group, on which Student Accessibility and Achievement holds a seat. If you have ideas for a project and are interested in knowing more about the submission process, let us know.
