Parking at Dalhousie
PLEASE NOTE *** Purchase of a general permit does not guarantee a spot. Refunds are available for general parking permits on a pro-rated basis. There are significant changes to parking availability on Sexton campus in the 2016-17 year due to future development. More information is available here and in this news story.
Dalhousie's Halifax Campuses offers a number of parking options:
- Permit parking
- Visitor and short term pay & display parking
- Motorcyle Parking
- Evening parking (Studley Campus)
*Note - as of March 1, 2016, Dalhousie no longer owns the parking lot behind Fenwick Tower on South Street. Anyone parking there with a Dal parking pass will be ticketed and/or towed/booted.
Short Term Parking on the Halifax Campus
Coming to Dal for a meeting, one class or just one day? Head to either the LeMarchant Place parking lot on South Street,Studley Campus (number 17 on the map below) or the north end of the Rosina Lot on Sexton Campus (number 1 on the Sexton map further down the page). Both lots are pay and display for a cost of $2 per hour or $16 per day and have been created to address rising short-term parking needs on campus. Parking is free in these lots in all non-reserved spots from 4:30 p.m. - 1:30 a.m. No overnight parking from 1:30 to 7:30 a.m.
