Student Parking

Students requiring parking at the Notre Dame Campus between 7:00am and midnight Monday to Thursday and 7:00am and 5:00pm Fridays must purchase a parking permit from the Student Service Centre or purchase hourly/daily parking at one of the Pay and Display lots.

Overnight parking between midnight and 7:00am is not permitted without prior authorization from Parking Services.

Areas which cannot be used are: 24-hour reserved stalls, no parking areas, loading zones, staff areas or any area as defined in the Traffic and Parking Regulations. (Copies are available at Parking Services.)

Monthly Daytime Parking Permits

Student parking is sold on a first-come, first-served basis and can be purchased monthly or for multiple months at a time. As parking is limited and often sells out, we recommend students purchase multi-month passes that cover the duration of their program. If no parking spaces are available, students can add their name to a wait list and be notified once a space becomes available.

Depending on the availability, students have the choice of power or non-power parking. Parking is assigned in student-designated lots on a scramble basis.

To purchase parking, visit the Student Service Centre (D101 – Notre Dame Campus).
