2020 uLethbridge Parking Permit Lottery | FAQ ** Maybe Subject to Further Delays**

For the upcoming academic year September 2020 – August 2021, student parking permits will be drawn through a lottery system, as was the process last year.

Permit Facts:

·         You can share a single parking pass with one friend; however, only one student can be registered to the pass. Any parking tickets, lost pass etc. will be the sole responsibility of the purchaser.

***If you wish to share a pass, stop by the Campus Mobility office at TH101 with your student ID, license plate number, as well as the make and model of your car and your friends. You will need to state in your email, and sign a document indicating that you take responsibility for your friend when using the pass, which will then be registered in our system.***

·         Priority on the waitlist will be given to students outside of Lethbridge and bus zones. The address listed on your student record will be used to determine residence.


Students living in residence will apply for a parking permit during their Check-in through Housing Services.
