Parking permits for the winter semester will be available to purchase December 9, 2020.  Please use https://uregina.aimsparking.com to purchase a permit.

Parking Update November 25, 2020

Effective January 1, 2021, parking fees will resume for anyone who is parking in an "M" (no plug-in parking) or "Z" (plug-in parking) lot, including the College Avenue campus, and for resident parking. No action is required for those who pay for parking via payroll deduction and who wish to maintain their surface lot parking permits. Parking fees will begin being deducted automatically from their pay effective January 1, 2021. However, those wishing to discontinue paying for parking through payroll deduction will be required to notify Parking Services by December 21, 2020. Once again, securing parking permits in preferred lots cannot be guaranteed in the future.

Permit holders who wish to discontinue parking in these areas when fees resume may do so by emailing Parking Services at uparking@uregina.ca.

M permit holders will be able to park in any open M area and/or the public parking areas of Lots 2 and 14. Resident and Z permit holders may park in any open Z area.

As a reminder effective November 1, 2020, anyone parking in public (PayByPhone/pay stations/metered) parking will be required to pay for the time they are parked as appropriate. Rates are posted on the Parking Services website at: https://www.uregina.ca/parking/parking-permits/parking-rates/index.html.

Parking Update - October 27, 2020

 

The University has decided to close some parking lots or sections of lots and discontinue snow removal for these areas. Parking lots 1, 7 and 8 will be completely closed, while parking lots 10 and 13 will only have certain sections cleared for parking on the main campus. 

Closures to these parking areas will become effective November 1, 2020. The parking lots closed or reduced in size will be physically marked with barricades and/or signage to identify areas where parking is not allowed.  We ask that you respect the barricades and do not park in closed parking lots or closed areas.

From November 1, to December 31, 2020, parking in the open M and Z-designated lots is not restricted by permit type and is available at no charge. Underground parkades will be required to pay for their permit and anyone parking in public (PayByPhone/pay stations/metered) parking areas will be required to pay for the time they are parked.

As of January 1, 2021, parking fees will resume for M, Z and Resident permit holders. M permit holders will be able to park in any open M area and/or the public parking areas of Lots 2 and 14. Resident and Z permit holders may park in any open Z area.

Parking Update - October 22, 2020

This is to advise that the University will be reinstating on-campus parking fees using a phased-in approach.

In March 2020, when the University transitioned to remote teaching, learning, and work, all parking fees were discontinued as the majority of staff and students were no longer parking on campus. With the exception of accessible and loading zone parking, enforcement was also suspended.

Over the last few months, more faculty, staff, and students have been returning to campus and we anticipate this trend to continue in the Winter 2021 semester. As a result of this increased traffic the University is reinstating parking fees through a gradual, two-phased approach.

Phase one:

Effective November 1, 2020, normal parking fees will be applied to all underground parkades and all visitor/public parking areas (PayByPhone/pay stations/meters) and enforcement (ticketing of violators) will resume in those parking areas.

Anyone who currently has an underground parkade permit and elects not to keep it must advise Parking Services that they are relinquishing their permit by October 28, 2020. Those who wish to discontinue their underground parking should email uparking@uregina.ca. Parking Services cannot guarantee that those same parking spaces will be made available in the future. For those who decide to keep their underground parkade permit, parking fees will begin being deducted automatically from their pay effective November 1, 2020.

Also effective November 1, 2020, anyone parking in public (PayByPhone/pay stations/metered) parking will be required to pay for the time they are parked as appropriate. Rates are posted on the Parking Services website at: https://www.uregina.ca/parking/parking-permits/parking-rates/index.html. The PayByPhone app can be downloaded free from Apple's App Store or Google Play.

Surface lots designated as "M" or "Z" will continue to be free of charge until January 1, 2021. Those lots can be located here: https://www.uregina.ca/parking/maps.html.

Phase two:

Effective January 1, 2021, parking fees will resume for anyone who is parking in an "M" (no plug-in parking) or "Z" (plug-in parking) lot, including the College Avenue campus, and for resident parking. No action is required for those who pay for parking via payroll deduction and who wish to maintain their surface lot parking permits. Parking fees will begin being deducted automatically from their pay effective January 1, 2021. However, those wishing to discontinue paying for parking through payroll deduction will be required to notify Parking Services by December 21, 2020. Once again, securing parking permits in preferred lots cannot be guaranteed in the future.

Permit holders who wish to discontinue parking in these areas when fees resume may do so by emailing Parking Services at uparking@uregina.ca.

Faculty and staff who had paid in full for parking for the previous year (May 2019 to April 2020) have a one month credit that can be applied to their 2020-21 parking. Permit holders with a credit should email Parking Services at uparking@uregina.cato have the credit applied.

It is important to recognize that parking is an ancillary service the University provides on a user-pay basis. Those paying to park on campus are paying for parking infrastructure (lot development), maintenance, snow removal and enforcement. As the University continues to deal with impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic the University is projecting a budget shortfall of $13.5 million, of which approximately $4 million is related to foregone parking revenue. This is not sustainable and even with the reinstatement of parking fees there is expected to be a shortfall in this area until University operations return to normal.
