General Information

Information will be posted on the Parking Services website at https://parking.ok.ubc.ca prior to the sale date with the sale dates subject to change. If you are a Commuting student you are not eligible to purchase a Resident permit and vise-versa.

The permits are online purchase only and are based on availability. When permits are available, on the front page of the Parking Services website at https://parking.ok.ubc.ca, login to your Parking Account with your CWL (Campus Wide Login). In the Parking Portal, select Add/Edit Waitlists and follow the prompts to add to a waitlist. You will remain on the waitlist during the semester and emailed to purchase a permit based on your priority and placement. A vehicle does need to be on the account before purchasing the permit.

– The waitlist will close once all permits have been sold.
– Select up to 4 lots in the waitlist and prioritize them from 1-4 (first choice to last choice). Only one permit will be awarded.
– No permits will be sold in the office or over the phone. You must sign up for the waitlist online and awarded a permit before purchasing online.
– Permits are awarded based on order and priority.
– You will remain on the waitlist until you have either been awarded a permit, or until the waitlist has been closed.

One semester permit per person is allowed. Login with your CWL (Campus Wide login) to purchase the permit. A vehicle is required on your Parking Account before purchasing the permit. Outstanding account balances must be paid in full before a permit can be purchased.

If you are a new student, it may take time for the classification to propagate through the system – resident or commuting. Closer to the sale date you should expect to be able to login with your CWL and to add your vehicle(s) to your account to purchase a permit.

Parking is not reserved. Availability for parking on campus is limited and first come first serve.
