The majority of citations are $60 and if paid within 14 days, which includes the day you receive the fine, your citation is discounted by 50%, ie: $30.

It is the responsibility of the person paying the citation to have it paid on or before the 14 day mark in order to receive the 50% discount. If paying by mail this means that you must account for the time that it takes to reach the Parking Services office. Payment must be received in hand by the Parking Services office on or before the 14 day mark.

If you dispute a citation within 14 days of receipt, and the citation is upheld, the 14 day process for payment will begin on the date of the Hearing Officer’s ruling.

Violations remaining unpaid and undisputed may result in a vehicle being immobilized, removed from campus or the driver’s student account being placed on hold.

For any further questions or clarifications, please refer to the University Counsel Website and the UBC Traffic and Parking Rules.
