Parking tips and FAQs

Parking tips

  • Student/employee 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/SPARC passes (if applicable). Failure to do so could result in a violation and/or tow.
  • License plate recognition software scans your license plate. Unregistered license plates 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, accessibility, or service stalls when loading or unloading a vehicle. Doing so could result in a violation and/or tow.
