Parking Permits 2024-2025 



We anticipate releasing information regarding parking permits for the 2024-2025 academic year in the forthcoming months. The application form for student permits will be accessible in August, exclusively for full-time students enrolled at the Macdonald Campus. Permit allocations will operate on a first-come, first-served basis, subject to verification of student status. We encourage students to revisit this platform July 29th for the precise date and time when the application form becomes available. Please note that parking permits will not be available for students studying at the downtown campus.

Daily parking

Employees and visitors to the campus may pay for parking by the day or half day by purchasing a permit at the Horticulture Lot machine. As of September 1st 2023, the rates are $8.50 for the day and $4.25 for the half day. The vehicle must remain parked at the Horticulture Lot. Please note that this permit is for visitors of the campus who come from time to time, such as technicians, visiting guest lecturers, contractors, etc., and is not intended to be used by students of either campus.

Departments can purchase booklets of 5 daily permits using a FOAPAL by emailing parking.servicesmac [at], please provide 48 business hours notice.


Permits are sold at the Laird Hall security office (room 101). You can also download the  macdonald_application_form_v2.pdf and send it by parking.servicesmac [at] (email) ahead of time. Please note that due to the limited amount of available parking, parking permits are only available to Macdonald Campus staff and students. Payment must be made in person regardless. For student permits, they will be sold on a first click first serve basis using the new format mentioned above.
