Parking at Dal


In order to park legally on University property (Halifax campuses or Agricultural Campus), vehicles must either display a valid permit or use a parking meter. To qualify for a parking permit, an applicant must be a Dalhousie University employee or student with a valid Dalhousie ID.

*Note, purchase of a General Parking permit does NOT guarentee a parking spot. 


A Dalhousie parking permit cannot be purchased until all unpaid Dalhousie parking tickets are paid.


  • All unpaid Dalhousie University parking tickets can be paid at the Security Services Office, located on the parking level of the Marion McCain Building, 6135 University Avenue.  Alternatively, you can mail a cheque to Security Services, PO Box 15000, Halifax, NS, B3H 4R2.
  • Not sure if your ticket is a Dalhousie University ticket or an HRM ticket? Contact us at parking@dal.ca

Order your permit online

All you need your Net ID, password and vehicle information.

Displaying your permit

Permit holders must display a valid permit at all times. Failure to display a valid permit will result in a parking ticket and the vehicle may be towed or immobilized at the owner’s expense.
