Tips To Avoid Citations

Here are a few tips to help you avoid receiving a citation while parking at the University of Regina. By following these guidelines the most common citations can be easily avoided.

Ensure that your license plate information is accurate at all times.

Your plate is your permit so ensuring that it is entered accurately and that it is up to date is important. You may update your license plate information directly online or register vehicles currently being used through your UR Parking Account

  • You may add up to three vehicle license plates to your parking ePermit but only one vehicle may be parked on campus at any time per parking ePermit.
Following the posted time zones.

For each public parking area there is a maximum amount of time that you may park during your visit to campus. These time zone maximums are posted on signs in the area. When parking in a public area, review the signs before you park to ensure the area matches the length of your stay. These limits are a time limit that cannot be exceeded.

  • Zones marked 15 minutes/ 30 minutes/ 2 hours / 3 hours are daily limits and cannot be exceeded or extended.
  • Use the PayByPhone app on your mobile device or enter your cellphone number at the Pay Station to receive reminders when purchased parking time is close to expiration.
  • If you do park in one of these time zone areas and need to stay on campus longer, move your vehicle to another location number and begin a new parking session.

Only park in areas authorized by your parking ePermit.

If you don’t know where to park, reference the Parking Maps or contact the Parking & Transportation Services and our staff will be able to assist you.
