Summer Parking Suspension

The University of Waterloo is taking steps to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, promote healthy lifestyles, and improve quality of life. In support of this initiative Parking Services will suspend your parking privileges (while still maintaining your place in your current lot) during summer months to encourage biking and walking to work.

This suspension can only be used from April 1 - October 31 in any given year. 

The minimum length of suspension is three months and the maximum length of suspension is up to seven months.

If you wish to suspend your parking, in support of an alternative travel mode, please stop by Parking Services with your current permit, access card and photo identification. You will be asked to sign a “cancel deductions form” and surrender your permit and access card. When you decide to start driving again you will need to stop by Parking Services and reactivate your permit and deductions.

Please note parking permits will only be putting permits on on hold for HR approved leaves outside of the Summer Suspension, it cannot be put on hold for vacations.
