Student parking

If you are registered for a minimum of six credits and have paid your tuition and other fees in full, you can purchase a semester parking pass.

How to buy a parking pass:

  • Enroll in a minimum of six credits
  • Pay your tuition (minimum of six credits)
  • Complete a Parking Pass Application/Payment Form
  • Purchase the parking pass at the campus you will be attending for the majority of the credits.
  • Indicate on the Parking Pass Application/Payment Form if also attending classes at New Westminster Campus or Coquitlam Campus. Students who purchase a pass at the bookstore in Coquitlam will receive a hanging parking pass. If you also require parking at New Westminster Campus, your pass will be exchanged by the parking attendant at the Carnarvon parking lot location for a pass compatible at both campuses.
  • Pay the posted semester pass fee at the Bookstore at either campus.

Parking passes are non-refundable and non-transferable.

In addition to the Carnarvon Parkade, students with passes have access to the New Westminster Underground Parkade after 5:30pm.

Students with passes for the Coquitlam Campus can have access to the underground parkade after 5:30pm. Overflow parking is available at the Town Centre Park, Lots A & E for students with pass displayed on dashboard or rear view mirror.
