Student Parking Permits - Available August 1st online

Sales of student permits for the upcoming 2020/21 academic year will begin online on August 1st.

Kindly read this entire message before purchasing a permit as the process for purchase and hang tag pick-up has changed.

IMPORTANT NOTE:  an active permit requires a paid permit along with a hang tag ($30 refundable deposit). First year students and new permit holders who do not already have a hang tag will need to ensure they purchase BOTH a permit and AVI hang tag deposit online. Returning students who already have a hang tag only need to purchase their permit. Due to COVID-19 we are restricting sales of student permits and AVI hang tags to online purchase only at this time.

How to pick up your hang tag:  hang tags will be available for pick up via a "drive-through" service in early September. Further information related to pick up will be posted here as it becomes available.

At this time we are not handling student permit sales or hang tag pick up in person at the Parking Office.

Thank you for your patience and understanding!

Purchase a Permit - Available August 1st

COVID-19 Update [July 28, 2020]

Western Parking & Visitor Services is not collecting fees on Faculty/Staff parking permits for the months of April, May, June, July and August. 

This will impact our customers as follows:

  • Customers using payroll deduction will not have parking fees deducted for these months. Permits will remain intact and no action is required.
  • Customers who have prepaid by cash, credit or debit for these months will have fees transferred for future month(s), or can be refunded in person when the office reopens.

As the phased return to campus continues to take shape, it is expected that parking fees will resume for the month of September. This is subject to change and we will continue to assess in alignment with the broader campus phased return.

Parking & Visitor Services has resumed monitoring lots. Permit holders are reminded to park in their designated lots or in grey permit areas if they do not currently have a permit. To ease the transition back to regular operations and facilitate ongoing community services, parking lot gate arms will remain raised, however, lots will be monitored and those infringing on fire routes, laneways, accessible and reserved spaces will be contacted.

Stay healthy and safe!
