How Permit Parking is Assigned

  • Most permit parking on Campus is assigned by lot on a first come first served basis.
  • Within a lot, parking is on a “scramble” basis (no assigned spots)
  • Every effort will be made to honour individual requests to be assigned to a specific parking lot.

Parking lots are sold to maximum plus capacity. Assignment to a specific lot does not guarantee that space will always be available. If your lot is full, please park in Lot #5 or #6 and notify the Ancillary Services office immediately. Please note that your parking permit must still be properly displayed. Please remove permit when operating your motor vehicle if you feel it is a safety hazard.

Temporary Permits

If you are unable to display your permit, please call the Ancillary Services office at 727-7394 immediately for instructions on how to obtain a temporary permit. This permit will be valid for the day it is issued and for the following day. Up to three temporary permits are allowed, at no cost, during the year (September 1 to August 31). After that the cost will be equal to that of a daily permit. Only Brandon University parking permits will be honoured and notes, handwritten or otherwise, will not be recognized.

Alternate Parking

Persons with permit parking may be required to park their vehicles in alternate locations due to snow removal or special functions which require a large amount of space. Adequate notice will be given prior to these events taking place.


12 month, 8 month, and 1 term permit holders may request a refund when cancelling their permit early.  Please note that long term permits are sold at a discounted rate and if cancelled before the end of the term of permit, the refund calculations will revert back to the monthly non discounted rate.

Refund Calculation Example =     Student purchased an 8 month (Sept – Apr) Serviced Space in 2022 at a price of $370.09 + tax

Student wanted to cancel permit February 1st of 2022.   Student has already used 6 months of parking.

$72.30 + tax (non discounted monthly serviced rate)  X 5 months used = $361.50 + tax

Therefor: $370.09 + tax – $361.50 +tax = $8.59 + tax is Refundable

Temporary parking (hourly, daily, weekly and 1 month parking) is a final sale.

Transfer of Ownership

Transfer of ownership of a permit is not permitted. Any other use, sale, or assignment is prohibited and will not be recognized by the University.
