A valid parking permit (regular, temporary, or Pay & Display) is required on all vehicles parked on the 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 Friday at 3:00 pm to Monday at 6:00 am.

Accessible and Reserved parking spaces require special permits and are not for general use

Ownership of a permit is not transferable.

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.











Pay & Display


There are four pay and display units (coin and credit card only) on campus:

  1. At Rosaria Lot #2 located near the McCain Centre 3rd floor entrance.
  2. In the parking lot between College Rd and the Aboriginal Student Centre.
  3. At the corner of Evaristus closest to the large parking lot.
  4. At the bottom of the Steps in front of the EMF

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.

Overnight Parking

All vehicles parked on Campus require a valid parking permit, including night shift employees and residents. 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 in case the vehicle must be moved due to an emergency 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.


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refunds are available to employees who have left the employment of the University, and to students who have completely withdrawn from all classes.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 Security at Assisi Hall 1st Floor to deal with this issue.

Lost or Stolen Permits

Lost or stolen permits must be reported immediately to Security. Depending on the situation, arrangements may be made for a replacement.

Display of Permit

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 to be considered a valid permit.

Mount Saint Vincent University campus is private property. Mount Security staff are authorized to issue tickets to enforce parking regulations. The minimum fine for parking infractions is $20.00.


Tickets must be paid to the Security Office at Assisi Hall within 10 days of receiving the ticket. Unpaid tickets will be automatically added to the students’ account after 10 days. Once the tickets are added to the account, the charge can not be removed and must be paid at Student Accounts.
