  • Follow the directions on your parking pass and always display it while in the Residence lot.
  • Occasionally you may receive an email to move your vehicle due to lot maintenance, such as snow removal or sweeping. Follow the email instructions carefully to avoid receiving a parking ticket or having your vehicle towed.


No longer require a parking stall for September?

Notify from your UNBC email account so we can remove the fees from your account and reassign your stall.

I received a notification about moving my car for snow removal, but I am currently away. What do I do? 

Please send an email to or call the office at 250-960-6430 as soon as possible to avoid the possibility of receiving a parking ticket, or having your vehicle towed.

I have a guest with a car, where do I get a parking pass? 

If your guest is only parking in our parking lots for a few hours, they can pay for parking at the parking meter located on the first floor Neyoh lobby. If your guest is parking overnight, they must fill out a Parking permit - Guest form and submit it to the Housing Office during office hours (Monday-Friday 8:30am-12:00pm, 1:00pm-4:30pm).

If you have any other questions prior to your arrival regarding parking please email the Housing Office at
