Visitors and daily parking rates

There’s a new way to park at uOttawa!

Please note: most visitor/daily parking on Campus will be available to purchase on the HotSpot app only, and the Pay & Display machines will no longer be in service.

Now you can pay for daily parking using the HotSpot app from the comfort of your car! Get reminders when your time is running out, and top up the meter from your mobile device. You can even save money by saving unused time on the meter for your next trip to Campus.

Plus new users get their first half hour of parking free! Download HotSpot now from the App Store or the Google Play Store.
