Student Parking Permits
Even as one of Canada's largest Universities, Western's parking areas are limited and must be shared by upwards of 500,000 people annually. Possession of a permit does not guarantee a spot in a favourite lot. We ask that you respect the University's parking rules and regulations or consider other sustainable transportation options.
If you are a student on campus who is also employed by Western (TA, RA, etc.), your student status overrides any Faculty/Staff status. Students in this position are eligible for a student permit, not a Faculty/Staff permit.
- If you have never purchased a Western parking permit before.
- If you have a parking account, but no hang tag.
- If you have lost your hang tag.
- If you have a hang tag and a parking account.
Student Parking Zones
Parking permits are not sold by lot; they are sold by zone. Students occupy the green zone, which is comprised of:
- Althouse West (Tip: fills to capacity by about 10:00 am)
- Ontario Lot
- Medway (Tip: does not usually fill to capacity)
- Huron Flats (Tip: fills to capacity in September because of football)
- Springett West Gate (Tip: fills to capacity by about 8:30 am)
During the summer months (May - Aug.), student (green) permit holders have access to all green zone lots as well as the following grey zone lots: Springett Staff lot, and Althouse Staff lot.
All rates include HST and are subject to change.
A fully refundable hang tag deposit of $30 will be charged at the Parking Office when picking up new permit hang tags.
