To register with Parking Services you must be a Departmental Administrator and contact the Parking Services Office at 613 520-3623 or email The required permissions will be added to your ParkAdmin account.  If you have frequent guests or special events, you should consider an online Departmental parking validation portal (see below).

The responsibility for ensuring vehicles are legally parked and that appropriate parking fees have been paid rests with each vehicle operator.

Note:  These discounted passes are intended for Departmental guests to facilitate University business.  They are not to be used for staff parking.

Parking Validation Portal for Frequent Guests

Departments that frequently host guests may request an online parking validation portal which would allow the Departmental Administrator to validate their guest(s) parking in advance of the scheduled visit.   For more information on the online parking validation portal, please contact the Parking Services Office at 613 520-3623 or email

Special Events

Parking Services can also help organize parking arrangements for larger events or conferences taking place on campus. If your department or group requires parking arrangements, please contact the Parking Services Office at 613 520-3623 or email  Arrangements to use campus parking lots can typically be made for evenings and weekends. Parking Services can provide a QR Code/validation link for the event attendees to simplify the parking process. Costs vary based on day, time, and location.
