Parking at Dalhousie

PLEASE NOTE *** Purchase of a general permit does not guarantee a spot. We sell more general permits than we have spots to allow for people who come and go from campus throughout the day. Refunds are available for general parking permits within 30 days of purchase.   

Passes are on sale August 14, 2018 ONLY ONLINE. To qualify for a parking permit, an applicant must be a Dalhousie University employee or student with a valid Dalhousie ID.

Buy your permit here.

In order to park legally on University property (Halifax or Agricultural Campus), vehicles must either display a valid permit, use a parking meter or show proof of pay and display where applicable.
