2.1 Application for Parking Permit
2.1.1 Students, employees, service personnel and other persons having a direct association with the university, hospital or Marine Institute and wishing to park a vehicle in a designated area on campus must obtain a parking permit.
Application forms are available at the Campus Enforcement and Patrol Office in the Facilities Management Building or at the Health Sciences Centre, Room H-2720, and at Room 2062, Marine Institute.
For the convenience of university employees (faculty and staff), applications may be processed by mail. In this regard, the application form must be completed and signed by the applicant, applicable fee and proof of ownership of vehicle enclosed. University employees who want their parking fee to be deducted from their salaries must complete and sign the applicable portion of the application form.
On signing the application form the applicant acknowledges that he/she has read, understands, and agrees to abide by the 2009-2010 Traffic and Parking Regulations.
Applications may not be processed if the applicant has outstanding tickets and/or if the applicant has previously shown disregard for these regulations.
In special circumstances an applicant may be considered when applying for a permit for a vehicle not registered to that applicant. In this instance written permission from the registered vehicle owner must be provided.
2.1.2 Applicants who are issued gate control cards with their permits may be required, at the end of the applicable permit year, to return the card before a new permit for another year will be issued.
2.2 Allocation of Parking Permits
Parking in designated areas will be allocated as space permits. Priority will be given to fulltime faculty/staff and to persons with disabilities, who were registered for the parking area in the previous year. Priority for the 2009/2010 permit issue will not be applicable after May 31, 2009. In the event that the applicant does not receive the preferred parking area indicated on the application form, a memo should be sent to the assistant manager of Campus Enforcement and Patrol, Traffic and Parking, indicating a continued interest in the preferredarea as space becomes available.
2.3 Placement of Permits
2.3.1 General Permits in the form of decals issued for vehicles other than motorcycles or car pool vehicles must be affixed on the inside of the front windshield and located in the top centre behind the rearview mirrow so as not to interfere with the driver’s vision nor the Department of Transportation and Communications vehicles inspection sticker. This location has been approved by the Minister of Transportation and Communications.
Decals, when affixed, must be clearly visible through the front windshield from outside the vehicle. Applicants must contact the Enforcement and Patrol Section for advice regarding vehicles for which this location is not considered satisfactory, e.g., heavilytinted windshields. All previous university decals must be removed from the windshield.

A person may be permitted to register two vehicles for the same
parking area. Permits will be laminated by the issuing office. The
permit must be placed on the dashboard of the registered vehicle so
as to be clearly visible from the outside when the vehicle is
parked on campus. Applicants who require a gate control card will
be issued only one gate control card per parking permit.
2.5 Application for Second Permit
A second permit, as space permits, may be issued where two persons using the one vehicle on campus request permission to park in different parking areas.

Both permits must be affixed adjacent to each other in the location noted in Section 2.3.1.
2.6 Car Pool Registration
The use of car pools on campus is encouraged.
Two or more users, employees or students, may apply for a single permit at the appropriate fee for use in a car pool. An application form must be completed for each vehicle in the car pool. For placement of permit, see Section 2.3.4.
