Q: Is my permit valid on the date it expires?

Daily, monthly, yearly and term permits are valid until 11:59pm of the day they expire.

Q: Do I need to display my parking receipt or permit on the dashboard of my vehicle?

No, it is not necessary to display a receipt or permit on the dashboard. The license plate associated with the payment is reflected in our computer system.

Q: I have a full-time permit from another university, like SFU or UVic, do I still have to pay for parking?

UBC has reciprocal parking agreements with Simon Fraser University and the University of Victoria. If you have Faculty, Staff or Emeritus yearly permits from one of these institutions, you can park at UBC for no more than two consecutive days using the permit from your home university.

Parking with this type of permit is only available at North, Rose Garden, Fraser, Thunderbird, West and Health Sciences Parkades.

Please forward a copy of your valid full-time permit or permit purchase receipt to with your license plate number and the dates you will be parking on campus.
