Special HotSpot Permit for Employees

To support flexible work arrangements, Parking Services is pleased to offer employees a special daily parking option. A pay-per use daily parking rate of $7 through the HotSpot Mobile App – will now be available in parking Lot 5 (that faces Bronson Ave., and is south of Stadium Way) and Lot 7 (corner of Bronson and University Drive).

Location Parking Lots 5 and 7:

In order to exercise this option, existing parking permit holders need to cancel their permit and new permit holders need to set up a parking profile. Please contact Parking Services at parking@carleton.ca or at 613-520-3623 to subscribe or to obtain further information. Subscribers will receive a special code from Parking Services to use with the HotSpot app. Subscribers will need to download the HotSpot app on their cellphone (or similar device) and validate their parking on each occasion.  HotSpot membership is no longer required to use the HotSpot App to park at Carleton University.


Daily Parking Validation for the Employee Hotspot Permit uses the same Hotspot APP as campus visitor parking.  The only difference is instead of entering the four digit Hotspot Lot code displayed in each lot, Staff/Faculty Hotspot Permit Holders must enter the special four digit code provided with your Hotspot Permit Confirmation email.

Here are detailed HotSpot App download, setup and use instructions available for reference.
