Changes to Your Permit
Updating your Licence Plate Information
You can link up to four licence plates to your parking permit, but only one vehicle per permit can be in your assigned lot at any given time. To add a vehicle to your permit, please log in to the parking portal.
Though you can add other drivers you carpool with to your permit, you cannot transfer your permit to another person. Transfer of ownership of a parking permit is prohibited. Any student found in possession of a parking permit acquired from any source other than Parking Services is subject to a fine of $350.00 and will be prohibited from parking a vehicle at the university for a period of up to 12 months. A breach of this latter provision would subject the person's motor vehicle to being impounded.
Cancelling your Parking Permit
To cancel your parking pass, complete the Student Permit Cancellation Webform.
Your permit will be valid until the end of the month in which you submit your cancellation.
Permit holders may link additional drivers to their parking permit by completing a carpool form and submitting it to Parking Services. Residence permit holders are not able to carpool.
Those who participate in a carpool are responsible to ensure that only one vehicle registered to the virtual permit is in the assigned lot at any given time. Virtual parking permits are not transferable to a carpool member.
Student Parking Permits Explained
Student 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. Parking permits are assigned for specific lots on a "scramble" basis—you will not be assigned to an individual parking stall. In order to park in a reserved lot on weekdays between 7:30 a.m. and 4:30 p.m., your licence plate must be linked to a valid permit.
Evenings, Weekends and Holidays
On weekends, holidays and after 4:30 p.m. on weekdays, there is no charge for parking in most staff, student, meter and Pay by plate lots. However, there are some restricted areas and times which cannot be used for general parking and which remain under strict control at all times. Review the IG Event Day Information Page to ensure you are familiar with event day parking.
Restricted areas include (but not limited to) :
- No parking and no stopping zones
- Loading zones
- Fire lanes and driveways
- Marked pedestrian areas
- 24 hour reserved stalls
- Accessible stalls
- Landscaped areas
- Lot corners, aisles, and end of aisles
- Hooded and reserved meters
- Certain lots during IG Field Events

Accessible Parking Permits

Motorcycle and Moped Parking
Motorcycles, motor scooters, and mopeds are considered to be motor vehicles and require parking permits, which are available on a monthly basis though the Parking Portal.
