Appeal Procedure

How do you Appeal?

Appeals must be submitted in writing (forms can be picked up in the Parking Office) to the Secretary, Parking and Traffic Appeals Board, Trent Building, Trent Lane, University of Guelph or online within fourteen days of the ticket's issue.  If your ticket increases after 7 days, you must appeal the ticket before that date to avoid it escalating. 

What is the Appeal Committee?

The Appeal Committee is comprised of members from various bargaining and student groups on campus and is a separate entity from the office of Parking Services & Transportation Planning.

When does the Appeal Committee Meet?

The Appeals Board meets every second Thursday during September - April.  During the summer semester approximately once a month.

Will my ticket increase while on appeal?

No, your ticket will not increase in price while on appeal.  Once the Appeal Committee responds to you, you then have 14 days to pay your ticket before it becomes outstanding.  You have 7 or 14 days depending on your ticket violation for it to increase in price after the date of the appeal.

How will I hear from the Appeal Committee?

Unless otherwise specified, correspondence from the Appeals Board will be sent via email.

Can I meet with the Committee in Person?

No, all appeals are processed either by your written appeal or the online appeal process.
