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. Applicants must complete and return the signed payroll deduction authorization form and staff application form to the parking office. Employees 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 of one month or more 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 may 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 or credit card.
