Wait-list Information

How Do The Waitlists Work?

Once the maximum number of each permit type that can be reasonably accommodated in each area has been sold, waitlists are started for all other interested parties.

As permits are cancelled, and Parking & Transportation Services monitors lot utilization to determine if more permits can be sold, additional permits will be released to those on waitlists in the order that they joined.

Waitlist applicants are currently being contacted for both Unreserved and P5 permits.  Be sure to check your email to see if you have been sent a waitlist notification.

How do I join a waitlist?

Add yourself to one or more waitlists by logging into the online purchasing system.  Click on “Order Permits” and each permit type will be listed.

How long will I be on the waitlist?

In short, we don’t know.  Availability is based on cancellations and lot utilization patterns that are ever-changing.  Based on previous years data and experiences there is little  waitlist movement until after Thanksgiving, at which time some additional permits can typically be released.

How will I know if I am offered a permit?

You will receive an email with details and instructions.  We typically extend offers for a 1 week period before moving on to the next people on the list.  Make sure that your email address is up to date in the Parking Purchasing Sytem, and keep an eye out for a Waitlist Notification.

When is my next opportunity to purchase a parking permit?

The Winter Sessional permit that is valid from January – April will go on sale in early December.  Please check our website closer to then for additional information.
