Please email for information on how to obtain a new retiree parking permit.

*Retirees are issued a complimentary permit which authorizes parking in the Alumni/Thompson lot at any time (as space permits), any Honk parking space on campus (as space permits) and all gated lots after 4 pm and ungated lots after 7 pm Monday to Friday, all day Saturday, Sunday, and Statutory Holidays (posted signage at lot entrances may restrict parking and should be obeyed). Retiree parking permits are not valid at affiliated colleges. 

A fully refundable hang tag deposit of $30 will be charged at the Parking Office when picking up new permit hang tags. 

If you currently have a retiree permit, you no longer need to renew your permit each year. Your permit will be valid for as long as you would like to have it.

Retiree permits are a benefit to the retiree and can only be used by the retired staff/faculty member it is assigned to.  Active students, staff and faculty are not eligible to use retiree permits.  

*Retirees - Retired members of UWO Faculty may apply for complimentary visitor area parking (depending on space availability).
