The prices for the 2015 – 2016 school year are below

There is no free parking on campus at any time from Monday to Friday throughout the entire year so please buy what you will need to prevent parking tickets. It is always more economical to buy what you will require at once, and if anything changes throughout the year please go to the Security desk to discuss available options. Once a permit has been purchased, there is no way to extend the time by paying the difference in the prices. A new permit will need to be purchased. If you are having complications, please go to the Security Office and make arrangements to avoid being ticketed.

Rules and Regulations

PERMITS: A valid parking permit (regular, temporary, or Pay & Display) is required on all vehicles parked on the MSVU Campus. This is enforced both day and night. Annual, term, monthly, weekly, and daily permits are available at the Assisi Information Centre. Permits are not required from Fridays at 5:00 pm to Monday at 6:00a.m. (See section below for information about Overnight Parking).

Ownership of a permit is not transferrable.

Permits are not permitted for the purpose of storing vehicles on MSVU property, or vehicles not for the general use of travel to and from MSVU.

Only one permit per person will be allowed. If a second permit is required, please see Security to explain why.

PAY & DISPLAY: There are two pay and display units (coin only) on campus:

  • between Rosaria Lot 1 & 2
  • In front of Seton Annex.

Any amount of time, up to a full day permit, can be purchased at the pay & display. Place your pay and display permit face up and ensure the information on it is visible through your windshield.

All permits (other than Pay & Display) are not valid at meters.

PERMIT DESIGNATION:Handicap Parking and Reserved spaces require special permits.
OVERNIGHT PARKING:All vehicles parked on Campus require a valid parking permit, including night shift employees, residents, and overnight guests of the University. Drivers/owners of all other vehicles must advise the Security Department when a vehicle must be left on Campus overnight. Keys must be left with the Security Department and the following information is required:

a) name of the person leaving the vehicle
b) the make and model of the vehicle
c) licence plate number

Vehicles left overnight must be parked in lots as directed by Security staff. This is particularly important during snow removal operations.

REFUNDS: Pro-rated refunds are available to employees who have left the employment of the University, and to students who have completely withdrawn from all classes. Please go to the Assisi Information Centre to deal with this issue.

LOST PERMITS: Lost or stolen permits should be reported immediately to Security Dispatch at Assisi.

DISPLAY OF PERMITS: The full face of the permit must be clearly visible through the front windshield of the vehicle. Normally, parking permits are attached to the rear view mirror or taped to the windshield in a location that does not obstruct the view of the driver. All permits must display the validation/expiry date sticker issued at the time of purchase. Motorcycle permits should be affixed near the motor vehicle safety inspection sticker.




The Mount is not responsible for loss, theft, or damages incurred to your vehicle while parked on campus.
