Parking During Convocation

Special parking accommodations are in effect during Convocation. We expect increased traffic congestion so please allow extra time for your travels and follow the direction of traffic control staff.

Parking regulations remain in effect during Convocation - parking is complimentary for Graudands and Guests, however; pay parking remains in effect for everyone else.

North Parking - Reserved for Graduands and Guests (overflow to West Parkade)

Convocation Mall Visitors - reserved for disabled Graduands & Guests

Outdoor Permit Holders - For the purposes of Convocation only, your Outdoor permit will be valid both in the Outdoor lots and the Indoor lots.

Reserved Permit Holders - Traffic control staff will be directing guests to available parking. If you find that your reserved space is occupied, please park in the closest available space.

Shuttle Service - There will be a shuttle on campus. Initially the shuttle will be between South Parking and the Strand Hall lot, however; if people need to be parked in contingency locations, the shuttle may also stop at those locations.

Thank you for accommodating graduands and guests on one of the most important days of their academic career, and should you have any questions or concerns please contact Parking & Sustainable Mobility Services at

Parking Lot Name Changes

A new wayfinding improvement project is now underway across campus. As part of the overall changes to roadway and campus signage, the parking lots will be changing:

The large permit/visitor lots will change from alphabetical naming to geographical naming (e.g. B Lot will become East Parking)

The smaller permit only lots will change from alphabetical naming to naming according to the nearest building (e.g. E Lot will become Strand Hall Parking)

            "Lot Full" scenarios in the Outdoor parking lots

(Updated Spring 2016)

North Parking (C Lot) and East Parking (B Lot) occasionally reach "lot full" status, especially at the beginning of a semester. 

Please drive with care and allow extra time to park and arrive at your classes/offices.

Note that Outdoor Permits are valid in any of East Parking, North Parking, and South Parking (B Lot, C Lot, and P3); if you find one of those lots full, please proceed to one of the other lots within which your permit is valid.

North Parking (C Lot) fills around 10:00 AM and stays full until around 2:00 PM. If you arrive during these times check the other lots.

East Parking (B Lot) fills around Noon and stays full until around 2:00 PM. If you arrive during these times check the other lots.

South Parking (P3) has spaces available at all times of day

In the meantime, Parking Services is:

1) Continuing to monitor occupancy within the lots.

2) Working with Facilities Services to create additional spaces within the lots.
