With many courses moving online and the closure of many University buildings, parking demand for the fall term is expected to be lower than usual. Parking Services will announce the parking options available to students as soon as possible and no later than mid August. Please continue to check back for more updates.

Parking Services has notified all previous student parking permit holders that the April portion of their parking permit will be refunded.

All student refunds have been processed. For permits paid by credit card, the refund was returned to the card used for purchase. Cash or debit payments were refunded via cheques issued by the University and mailed.

Should you require parking on campus, please contact us by email at parking@umanitoba.ca or by phone at 204-474-9483.

Please continue to check back here for updates. Parking Services thanks you for your consideration at this time.

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. 

Assignment to a specific lot does not guarantee that a space will always be available. If your lot is full, please park in U Lot or Q Lot and notify us immediately by calling 204-474-9483. Please note that parking permits are not available for students on the Bannatyne campus. However, you can visit the Health Sciences Bookstore to pick up a free evening and weekend permit for E lot.

Accessible parking permits

To apply for an accessible parking permit, you will need to fill out an accessible parking application form 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.

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

Rates and flexible options

On the Fort Garry campus, general commuter and resident student parking permits cost $600 for the 2019-2020 academic year.

If you're only on campus part time, you can consider applying for a flexible permit, which will let you park in Q lot on either Monday, Wednesday and Friday or Tuesday and Thursday.

  • Monday/Wednesday/Friday permits cost $400 for the 2019-2020 academic year.
  • Tuesday/Thursday permits cost $280 for the 2019-2020 academic year.

Although flexible permits are now sold out, you can request to be put on the flexible parking permit waitlist. Please email studentparking@umanitoba.ca with your student number and a request for either the Mon/Wed/Fri permit or the Tue/Thu permit. Once a space becomes available, we will notify you by email.

Parking rates and refunds are pro-rated based on when you receive or cancel your parking permit.

Weekend, holiday and evening parking (after 4:30 pm), with the exception of Investors Group Field event days, is free in most lots except for N lot, the University Parkade and other locations as marked. 

Managing your account

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.
