For employees

COVID-19 Parking Update

Parking permit renewals on St. John’s and Signal Hill campuses are suspended for the remainder of the fall and the winter semesters (to April 30, 2021). Grenfell Campus and Marine Institute will issue permits, but will not charge for these. Memorial will issue a refund to employees and students who have previously purchased permits.

Parking permits will still be required (at no cost) for the following parking areas on the St. John’s campus: lots 60, 30, 27, 1, 25, 28, 20 and 4. All other permit parking areas will not require a permit and members of the university community can park at no cost. Officers will ticket for permit use in areas 60, 30, 27, 1, 25, 28, 20 and 4 and will enforce parking regulations for metered and pay-per-use lots, blue zones, fire lanes, and areas where parking is prohibited.

This decision was made in consideration of the many scenarios how employees and students are accessing campus.

Please note, guests should still use the Passport parking app for events. Refunds are only for permits, not for event parking.

Parking Renewals

Permits for areas 60, 30, 27, 1, 25, 28, 20 and 4 will be issued at no cost to eligible university employees and students. As space is limited, only individuals who held a permit in one of the listed areas last year will be eligible to receive a permit this year. Permits must be requested by email and will be sent by internal mail.

To request your permit for area 60, 30, 27, 1, 25, 28, 20 or 4, please send the following information to parking@mun.ca:
• Name
• Employee/student ID number
• Department/faculty
• Lot requested
• Vehicle information (only if it has changed): make, model, and license plate number
• Room number and building name for delivery of permit through internal mail

If you did not receive a permit for one of these areas last year, but think you should be eligible for one this year, please have your supervisor contact parking@mun.ca.

If you have already purchased a permit for one of these areas, you will be refunded and your permit will remain valid.

Parking Permit Refunds

All Memorial employees and students who have purchased a parking permit for the fall 2020 and winter 2021 semesters will be refunded in December. You do not need to apply for this refund; it will happen automatically through payroll (for those signed up for payroll deductions) or by direct deposit (for those who paid at the Parking Office). If you do not receive your refund by December 18, please contact parking@mun.ca.


Parking Rate Increase

The Board of Regents approved a permit rate increase for faculty (excluding MUNFA), staff and graduate students by the consumer price index (CPI) rate of 1.1 per cent, effective May 1, 2020. In addition, CUPE rates have been increased to align with general staff rates. As per the MUNFA collective agreement, last year’s rates have been maintained for this group. There is no increase in the cost of undergraduate parking.
