Departmental Online Guest Permits

Department Online Guest Permits 

When would you use this type of request? Departments can use this request for guest parking outside of the visitor locations (P31/P44).

Where will they park? Red or Yellow zones across campus - they are not location specific.

Who pays? EITHER! You decide if you would like to cover the cost or have your guest pay.

Why would I set this up, if my guest is paying? To enhance the guest experience by providing parking arrangements in advance. When they arrive to campus they have one less thing to worry about!

What is the cost? The cost varies from $5 - $15 per day, depending on colour zone/location

How does it work? Departments complete online request (in advance -see instructions below). Once complete, department receives confirmation email with special parking code. Department provides guest with specail parking code (from confirmation email) and the guest does the rest!
