  • Student Permits on Sale Tuesday, July 5th at 10 a.m.

    Student parking permit sales start on Tuesday, July 5th 

    Student online and in-office parking permit sales will begin on Tuesday, July 5 at 10 a.m.  (brocku.ca/parking/online services).  If the online system is busy, please be patient and try ordering again later.

    Residence students that need overnight parking are required to only purchase Residence parking permits only as all other student permits do not provide overnight parking.

    Parking rates will be increasing for 2016-17 in order to pay for significant maintenance work required on campus roads and parking lots. Some lots have deteriorated to the point of being beyond repaving, and need rebuilding over the next several years.  Refurbishing lots will make them safer for users, as they will be regraded to reduce standing water and the formation ice, and have more carefully divided walkways and connections to sidewalks.

    Rates for general parking permits will increase by $5 to $8 per month. Daily rates will increase by one dollar and hourly rates will remain unchanged.

    Once student permit ordering has begun, please visit brocku.ca/parking (Online Services).  We recommend ordering online to avoid lineups at the Parking office.  For easy online ordering instructions watch this video.

    Online orders can be paid by Visa or MasterCard only.   In-office orders can be paid by Visa, MasterCard, cheque, cash and debit. Parking account balances must be paid prior to purchasing your new permit and all license plates of vehicles that will display the permit must be linked to the new permit. It is a violation to display a permit in a vehicle with plates not linked to the permit.

    Questions? Please consult the Parking web site at brocku.ca/parking, call us at 905-688-5550 x 4309 during business hours, Monday to Friday, 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.  or email parking@brocku.ca.
