Rules and Conditions  

Parking is assigned each term by random lottery.

Applications are accepted for only one vehicle per driver. If a vehicle is entered in the lottery by multiple applicants, all those entries will be eliminated from the lottery.

Due to the limited parking available at Central City, you must be enrolled in courses during the semester you are applying for at Surrey campus to qualify for parking. All applications will be checked and any submissions that do not meet these qualifications will be eliminated from the lottery.

  • Effective Sept. 1st parking now costs $167.00 for the semester. This amount is $128.27 + 24% translink + 5% GST.
  • Debit is the only accepted payment for parking.
  • There are no parking refunds given due to violations on your license plate.
  • Parking is for classroom time, studying, research, social activities while present at the Surrey campus. There are no park and ride privileges to park at Central City and leave to go elsewhere.
