Parking information

Parking Information for all exhibitors

Due to limited availability of parking on campus, we can only offer one reserved parking spot per exhibitor booth each day. Parking will be available at the top level of the parkade. An attendant will be checking in exhibitors, ensuring only one vehicle per exhibitor booth is parking in the reserved parking area for the UM Career Fair.
All other vehicles will have to find alternative parking on campus at their own cost.

  • When entering the Parkade, take a ticket from the dispenser and keep it safe and on your person at all times. We will provide one (1) validation sticker per exhibitor booth and require your parking ticket to apply the sticker. The validation sticker will be given out toward the end of the career fair, each day.
  • You may want to consider alternate means of transportation such as taxis, ride services, buses or carpooling.
  • Should more than one vehicle come on behalf of your exhibitor booth, check the Visitor Parking website for up-to-date rates for the Parkade and other parking locations.
  • Please go to the university's Maps webpage to view maps for other parking locations or refer to the map below. 
  • We will have volunteers available to assist you in the parkade and with any setup needs. If you do not park in the parkade and require assistance moving items from your vehicle, please call 204-474-8284. We will send volunteers to help.

There is free Wi-Fi available in UMSU University Centre by selecting “uofm-guest” when choosing a wireless network on your device. While no password is required, once connected you will need to open an internet browser on your device and agree to the terms and conditions on the Guest Use page that should automatically load.

Career Services will also have a unique username and password for each exhibitor booth at the UM Career Fair, provided by IST. This will improve internet accessibility and reliability for those who need it. Additional details, instructions, and the username and password will be found in your exhibitor package at your booth.

In the past we have found that some exhibitors with office laptops have had challenges connecting with our Wi-Fi due to their organization's security settings/firewalls. We will endeavour to help in these situations, however you will likely need to connect with your organization's I.T. department.
