With classes online and most faculty and staff working remotely, UBC Parking is waiving short-term parking and parking permit fees until April 30, 2020.
Parking payroll deductions will be addressed automatically; no action is required by faculty or staff.
Permit holders who have prepaid for parking permits will be contacted once parking fees are reinstated for a refund or credit; no action is required by permit holders.
While payment is suspended, traffic and parking regulations remain in place. Visit parking.ok.ubc.ca for the latest Okanagan campus parking information.
