2019 Parking Permit Lottery
For the upcoming academic year September 2019 – August 2020, student parking permits will be drawn through a lottery system, as was the process last year.
Students living in residence will apply for a parking permit during their Check-in through Housing Services, not through the parking lottery.
To be eligible for the permit sale you need to be an admitted student at the University of Lethbridge by July 10, 2019 at 4:00 p.m.
Your offer of admission must be accepted and your tuition deposit received to be included in the lottery by July 10, 2019 at 4 p.m. Please take into consideration the expected delivery date of your tuition deposit, considering the length of time for mail delivery through Canada Post and online banking processing times.
All correspondence about the permit lottery will be sent to your student “@uleth.ca” email accounts. If you have not set up your uLethbridge account login and password, please do so now by visiting ulethbridge.ca/loginsetup
Eligible continuing and newly admitted students will enter the lottery through a customized email link from Campus Mobility Services (firstname.lastname@example.org), which will be sent on Monday, July 15, 2019.
You will have until Thursday, July 18th at 12:00 p.m. to complete the lottery form, including your preferred parking lots ranked in order of preference.

Vehicles that have been registered to a permit are still required to display their permit. Printed on all University permits is the regulation "Permits must be displayed in order to be valid". Please ensure that your permit is clearly displayed and visible. Parking enforcement employees are not required to search for permits that are not hanging from the rear view mirror but may be somewhere else inside the vehicle in question. Vehicles with a UofL parking permit that is obscured by other objects can be ticketed because the validity of the permit (expiry date/lot designation) cannot be verified.
Why can’t I park for free when the parking lot is empty?
Although the parking lots may appear empty enforcement may still be in effect if it is a regular working day. Parking regulations are applicable all year round. The daily operations and public access to the University of Lethbridge continues to be required for a wide variety of reasons outside of just the Academic calendar.
Parking is completely self-funding and therefore receives no funding from tuition fees, or Government. Things like parking lot construction and maintenance, sidewalks, paths, roads, electricity for lighting, snow removal, financial services, employee salaries, to name a few, must be paid for by revenues generated by parking fees.
What should I do if my car breaks down or if I have been drinking and cannot drive home?

This step may prevent your vehicle from being ticketed or towed. Vehicles left for this reason must be removed by 8am the next morning.
What can I do if I don’t feel safe walking to my vehicle after hours?
