Parking tips and FAQs

Parking tips

  • Student e-permits and UFV permits are not valid on city streets, or at AC's Student/Public Early Bird and Overflow parking lots.
  • Park in designated lots and stalls. See campus parking maps for the UFV Abbotsford campus and UFV Chilliwack campus at CEP.
  • Clearly display UFV permits. Failure to do so could result in a violation and/or tow.
  • Daily pay parking does not allow in-out privileges on campus or between the ‌Abbotsford campus and the Chilliwack campus at CEP.
  • Do not park in a fire lane, impede traffic flow, or park in visitor, disabled, or service stalls when loading or unloading a vehicle. Doing so could result in a violation and/or tow.

Frequently asked questions

Purchase a student e-permit online at myUFV by choosing the Campus Services tab. Credit cards are accepted.

No. There is no physical permit/pass issued. The vehicle's license plate becomes the "permit", and only one license plate can be registered.

Yes. All e-permits and hanging UFV parking passes are valid at all UFV campuses. Please note that if you are a student, you cannot park in the designated employee lots, or carpool and disability stalls.

Contact ICBC to get/register a new plate. Once you have your new plate, contact Impark to switch your e-permit over to the new plate.

If your plate was stolen while you were parked at UFV, it is recommended that you report the theft to UFV Security as soon as possible.

Yes. Either return to any of the meters on campus and use the "Add Time" feature, or PayByPhone and follow the prompts.

Daily pay parking is valid only at the campus where it was purchased. There is no in-and-out benefit when you pay at the meter or with the PayByPhone app. Consider purchasing an e-permit so that you can move between campuses worry-free.

You were parked in a fire lane, and your vehicle was unattended. When parking to load or unload your vehicle, either pay for parking and obtain a cart to transport your items, or have someone stay with your vehicle while you are away from it (only if it's for a short amount of time).

Strict enforcement of pay parking is performed by Impark, and parking lots are patrolled frequently. Failure to pay for parking could result in a violation. Pay violations within seven days and pay $30 plus tax, or wait and pay $60 plus tax.

To pay your violation: See the ticket for payment option details and contact Impark.

To dispute your violation: Contact Impark. If daily pay parking was purchased, provide the purchase receipt including the stall number. If you are a permit holder, provide your e-permit confirmation number/Impark account number, or employee or student permit number.

Did your vehicle get towed? Contact the tow companies based on what campus/city you're in.

Yes! Impark provides a free service called "Parker Pete" if you need help with your vehicle on campus:

  • Locked out of your vehicle
  • Need a boost
  • Have a flat tire

Need help? Call 1-877-771-PETE (7383).

Any vehicle in violation may be subject to removal at the owner's expense. On occasion, vehicles are towed on a 1st violation (fire lane, blocking drive aisles, unauthorized disabled stalls, safety reasons, etc.).
