Permit parking for employees is subject to the availability of permit parking allocated for employees among permit parking zones.
In the event the desired permit parking is not available, employees may purchase another available permit parking zone type and/ or may request to be placed on the respective permit parking zone waiting list. If permit parking becomes available, Campus Parking Services will, without any obligation whatsoever, make reasonable efforts to contact employees according to their position on the waiting list.
C1.3. Monthly Permit Renewal
Monthly Renewable permits are renewable for the period of 1 year from May 23 until April 24. Renewable permits must be renewed prior to the first three business days following the expiration of the permit-holder’s then-current permit parking or the renewal process will be cancelled.
C3.4. Permit Parking Not Issued for Outstanding Fines
Permit parking will not be issued to any person who has any outstanding fines owing to the University until such fines are paid in full. Permit parking will not be issued for any vehicle which has any outstanding fines owing to the University until such fines are paid in full unless proof of transfer of vehicle registration has been submitted in a timely fashion to Campus Parking Services.
C2. Payment of Permit Parking Fees
To validate their permit parking, permit-holders are required to pay, in full and in advance, the applicable permit parking fee for the applicable parking period for the applicable permit parking zone being purchased. Upon payment, a virtual permit is issued to the permit-holder against the licence plate of the vehicle(s) registered in the permit-holder’s parking account.
C2.2. Employee Payroll Deduction Program
Regular, full-time employees may purchase permit parking through the University’s payroll deduction program. To opt into the payroll deduction program, employees simply access their parking account and select the payroll deduction option. The monthly parking fee will be automatically deducted from the second pay each month to pay the parking fee, in full and on a monthly basis, i.e. the parking fee deducted from the 2nd pay period in March will be for permit parking in March. Monthly payroll deductions, including University-approved rate increases, will continue until the employee selects to opt out of the payroll deduction program or permit parking is otherwise cancelled or terminated.
C2.3. Administrative Charge for Insufficient Funds
Should any payment be returned by the University’s banking institution for insufficient funds, the University may charge the permit-holder an administrative fee for each occurrence of such insufficient funds in addition to the applicable parking fee, due immediately upon demand.
C2.4. Withdrawal, Cancellation or Revocation of Permit Parking
A violation of, or failure to observe and comply with, this policy, including these regulations, including non-payment of fees or fines levied by the University or recurring violations or failures, may result in sanctions in accordance with section A4.1 University Sanction, which may include withdrawal, cancellation or other revocation, without notice from the University, of permit parking.

C3.3. No Further Rights
Upon suspension, cancellation or other termination of any permit parking, permanent or temporary, voluntary or involuntary, Campus Parking Services has the right to redistribute and reassign permit parking without any further obligation whatsoever to the former permit-holder.
C3.4. Determination of Refund/ Balance Owing
In the event of any suspension, cancellation, or termination of any permit parking, permanent or temporary, voluntary or involuntary, Campus Parking Services determines whether a refund is owed to the permit-holder or if a balance remains owing to the University, using the following equation:
a = b – (c x d) – e, where
a = the balance.
b = total amount of parking fees prepaid or paid during the parking year;
c = monthly parking fee for permit parking type, as appropriate;
d = number of full parking months, used during the parking year;
e = amount of outstanding penalties and fines levied by University;
If a = 0, no refund or balance is owing;
If a > 0, a refund is owing to the permit-holder. Campus Parking Services normally issues refunds within ten business days following a request for refund, provided such request is made within ten business days following such suspension, cancellation or other termination of permit parking; and
If a < 0, a balance remains owing to the University. The permit-holder is required to pay the outstanding balance immediately upon demand by University. Failure to pay an amount owing is in violation of this policy, including these regulations.
