Parking Permits

Parking permits are available to all community members on a first come, first served basis. Parking Services encourages early purchases for the availability of space and to avoid line ups. Although multiple vehicles can be registered to a permit, only ONE vehicle per permit is authorized to park in the assigned permit lot, at any given time.

If you would like to place your name on the waiting list for the Keele Campus, e-mail with your name, address, phone number and lot choice. For the Glendon Upper lots, email Waitlist requests are restricted to a maximum of two lot choices.

There are a limited number of Reserved & Garage spaces that can be purchased by community members for the summer months only, but are not renewable for the academic year.  For availability please contact Parking Services. 

The following categories of permit lots are available based on location and rates.  Find parking permit rates here.
