New Flexible Parking For Staff
As of September 1st, 2021, all Ft. Garry staff will have the ability to park less often than full time, at a rate much closer to that of a permit rate, saving them from having to pay the casual parking rates.
Staff who qualify will pay through the Parkmobile app with a credit card each time they are on campus.
The pricing structure of $4.50 per day plus Parkmobile's standard $0.25 transaction fee is intended to offer a discount for those working 15 days or less in a month. 1 hour and 2 hour options are also available within the app at a discounted rate. Staff who consistently work over 15 days can choose to use Parkmobile, or purchase a full monthly permit for $75.
Ft. Garry staff who opt in for flexible parking will have their Parkmobile account's offer them a discounted rate to park in one of 4 reserved permit areas on Ft. Garry campus, Parking lots B, Q, U, and E. Please do not park in visitor parking area's while utilizing flexible parking. Visit our Parking Portal Help Page for instructions on how to opt in for the flexible parking option at Ft. Garry Campus. It can take up to 24 hours for the discounted parking rate to show up in your Parkmobile account once you have opted in to Flexible Staff Parking.
Bannatyne staff flexible parking has been oversold. If space becomes available, those with on hold Bannatyne permits will be contacted by email with information on how to sign up for flexible staff parking.
The flexible parking program for staff and faculty is subject to change based on parking lot availability.

Staff Parking Permits Explained
To apply for a parking permit, faculty and staff must fill out the Staff Parking Application Form (PDF) and submit it to Parking Services by email, fax or in person at the Welcome Centre (423 University Crescent).
Parking permits are assigned for specific lots on a "scramble" basis—you will not be assigned to an individual parking stall. If you would prefer to park in a different lot, you can add your name to up to four waitlists by completing the Waitlist Application Webform.
Staff parking operates through a virtual permit system. Parking privileges are assigned to your parking account and are verified using licence plate recognition software. In other words, your licence plate is your permit. It is the responsibility of the permit owner to ensure only one vehicle is parking using this permit at any given time.
In the rare event you cannot find parking in your assigned lot on the Fort Garry campus, you can park in the next closest staff or student lot (excluding D, J, N, V, CTC and all residence student lots) and notify us at 204-474-9483 as soon as possible.
If you have a rental vehicle, or a licence plate that is a temporary addition, you must also notify our office. When contacting us, please provide the licence plate number, employee ID or permit number and an end date for when you will no longer want this temporary plate affiliated with your permit.
From May 1 to August 31, you can park in student lots ACE, I, Q, U and W using your regular staff parking permit, regardless of which lot you are assigned to.
Accessible Parking Permits
To apply for an accessible parking permit, please submit an application form to Parking Services and provide a valid permit from the Society for Manitobans with Disabilities (SMD). Accessible permits are not assigned to a specific lot, but can be used in any accessible stall on campus.
