Student Parking for Winter 2024

Parking Services and the Sustainability Carleton team encourage students to explore commuting alternatives such as walking, cycling, public transit, ride sharing, carpooling, or permit sharing.

Only vehicles with valid Carleton University parking permits are permitted to park in designated permit-only parking areas from 0700h to 2230h (7:00am to 10:30pm) Monday through Sunday.  Anyone with a campus parking permit requiring later or overnight parking may only do so in accordance with the After Hours parking options.

Limited Winter (Jan.- Apr.) 2024 permits will be available for purchase online on December 4th, 2023 starting at 9:00am for lots P6, P7 and P18. 

Note:  Residence Students must purchase P18 Parking Garage permits due to overnight parking restrictions for surface lots that are in effect 15 Nov – 15 Apr. annually. Please contact Parking Services directly if you are living in residence and require a P18 parking permit.

Effective May 1st, 2017, Parking Services switched to virtual parking permits – no physical hangtags will be mailed/need to be displayed – your up-to-date vehicle information (licence plate details) in your ParkAdmin profile is your permit.
