Parking - September 2020

Paid parking will resume on September 1 on all University of Ottawa campuses. Daily parking may be purchased by credit card from Pay & Display machines located in visitor parking lots, and monthly permits may be purchased by credit card online or by debit card by appointment only at the Parking Office. Due to COVID-19 safety protocols we cannot accept cash payments for parking.

Parking office

The Parking office will be open for appointments only as of August 31. Please note that payment can only be accepted by debit or credit card and cash will not be accepted.

Office hours are Monday to Friday 8:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. and 1:00 p.m. to 3:00 p.m. (office closes for lunch).

To book an appointment please click here. As per the City of Ottawa bylaw and uOttawa COVID-19 policy, masks are required inside the building common spaces.


Parking permit sales

Online permit sales are now available, as well as in-person sales by appointment only.

Due to the uncertainty of the COVID-19 situation, daily (Pay and Display) and monthly parking will be the only types of permit available until further notice. This means that monthly permits must be re-purchased online or by appointment each month. Pre-sale begins five business days before the end of the month.

Permit Sharing

You can share a monthly permit with other drivers, but only one person can use the permit at a time. In order to be eligible for sharing all of the vehicles must be registered under the permit – even though the printed permit itself will only display the primary license plate number, the other plates will be available to enforcement officers.

Abuse of permit sharing will result in fines and immediate revocation of the parking permit.
