Flexible Day of the Week Permits

Flexible Permit Sale

Flexible permits for the winter term are SOLD OUT. Sign up for waitlists can be done through the parking portal.


Students will have the option to pick specific days of the week they require parking on campus. For example, if Tuesday and Thursdays are required for the term, you would purchase a Tuesday permit and a Thursday permit that would be valid only on those days from September 1st to December 31st. (Winter term flexible permits will be available in December).


If students are unable to obtain a parking pass or wish to be in a different lot than the one available, they may put themselves on up to 4 waitlists and order them by lot preference. Waitlists will not be available online until the lot is sold out.

To select waitlists, log into the parking portal using a UMNet ID. On the main page and there will be an area called Permits, click on "View your Waitlists" to add, prioritize, and delete waitlist requests. Once a spot becomes available, an email will be sent to the U of M email associated with the parking account.

Tuesday, August 23rd, 2022 student parking permits will be available for purchase through the Parking Portal. Commuter and resident student parking permits will now be sold as a monthly auto renewable permit paid by credit card. Parking privileges are virtually assigned and verified using licence plate recognition software.

A maximum of four licence plates may be linked to a virtual student permit. It is the responsibility of the permit owner to ensure only one vehicle is parking using the permit at any given time. Residence students may only have one licence plate linked to their permit at one time. The vehicle linked must be a personal or family vehicle, not belonging to another student or staff.

Vehicles must be parked within the numbered stall structure of the lot (no parking beyond or between rows, in drive aisles, on grass or centered on or between posts.

Monthly Auto-Renewable Permits – NEW!

Monthly permits will start September 1st and renew automatically on the 2nd last day of the month in order to pay for the next month of parking. During purchase, ensure to select September 1st as the start date of the permit to avoid being overchargedA credit card profile will be created using the credit card information entered at check out (do not uncheck the box to create a credit card profile or the permit will expire after 1 month and that spot will go to someone on the waitlist). September's payment will be due upon checkout. A total of 7 more payments of $75 each will be charged to the credit card on file. The permit will continue to renew monthly until the permit is cancelled by submitting a cancellation webform or until the last payment for April 2023. To cancel prior to April, cancellation must be submitted no less than 7 days prior to the end of month in order for cancellation to take effect for the upcoming month. No refunds will be processed for cancellations submitted mid-month. 

Confirmation of residence student status will be required in order to apply for a student residence permit. If you are a residence student and would like to purchase a commuter type permit, please contact our office.

Accessible Parking

Students may email a copy of their valid Accessible Permit after purchasing a parking permit online and our office will assign accessible stalls to the parking permit. 

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. 

Parking lots are sold to capacity. Assignment to a specific lot does not imply that space will always be available. If your lot is full please park in "U" or "Q" lot and notify our office immediately.

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
