Parking

Commencing September 1st, 2021, the university will be introducing a parking fee for daytime parking on campus.
 
Daytime parking permit requirements will be enforced (ticketing and towing) on campus from 6am to 6pm, Monday to Friday. The fee for overnight parking will continue but has been increased.
 
The fees will be as follows:
  • Daytime Parking - $250 per year/$150 per term
  • Overnight Parking - $300 per year/$175 per term
  • Single Day Parking - $10 per day

Permits will be required for any parking areas on campus during daytime hours and for overnight parking. Parking permits will not be required for people attending events on campus after 6 PM on weekdays or for parking at any time on weekends between 6 AM and 1AM. There will be parking spaces designated at the Keating Centre and Bloomfield Centre to accommodate short duration parking requirements.

Parking permits can be purchased and picked up at the Keating Centre Box Office between 9 AM and 7:30 PM daily. Payroll deduction is available for StFX employees as a means of paying for the fee (approximately $10 per pay).

The shift to paid parking is in line with our goal to create a more pedestrian-centric campus that reduces traffic congestion. More information will be shared as it becomes available.

 
 
DAYTIME PARKING
 
All students and employees who park on campus between 6 AM and 6 PM will be required to purchase a daytime parking permit, and display that permit in their vehicle while parked on campus. 
 
Single Day parking permits are also available through the Box Office.
 
DAILY parking permits DO NOT authorize the holder to park in “University Authorized Vehicles Only” parking spaces around campus.
 
Parking spots are not guaranteed. Parking is on a first-come-first serve basis. Students and employees are asked to adhere to posted parking regulations as well as demonstrate good parking etiquette consistent with the community code of conduct as outlined in the rights and responsibilities sections.

OVERNIGHT PARKING

Only students living in residence will be eligible to register for and purchase an OVERNIGHT parking permit, and all students with OVERNIGHT parking permits will be required to park in designated OVERNIGHT parking areas. Students who purchase an OVERNIGHT parking permit do not need to purchase a daytime parking permit.

Those students living in residence who wish to leave vehicles overnight on campus will need to purchase an OVERNIGHT parking permit at a cost of $300 for the full academic year (September 1st, 2021 – August 31st, 2022) or $175 for one academic term.

Please complete the form which requires your Student ID number, Residence, Make, Model and Year of vehicle and License Plate number. The system will not allow you to checkout without completing the form with this information. It is important that the details are correct as Security will be matching the permits with the information provided when checking parking areas and enforcing overnight parking during the academic year. Incorrect information could lead to a ticket or even having your vehicle towed.

Overnight parking permits can be picked up at the Charles V. Keating Centre Box Office. Students will be asked for their ID to match with the data that is in the system.

If you have any questions or concerns, please reach out to boxoffice@stfx.ca.

Please note that due to our limited parking capacity, we cannot guarantee that all students wishing to purchase an OVERNIGHT parking permit will receive one.

OVERNIGHT parking permits DO NOT authorize the holder to park in “University Authorized Vehicles Only” parking spaces around campus.

Should you decide to not bring a vehicle to campus, a number of transportation options are at your disposal including the StFX Students’ Union Drive-U, Antigonish Community Transit, and Maritime Bus. Many services and amenities, including grocery stores and the Antigonish Mall, are within walking distance of campus.
 
Overnight parking privileges have the following conditions and expectations:
  1. Overnight Parking Permits MUST be clearly visible in your vehicle at all times when parked on campus. Failure to do so may result in your vehicle being ticketed and towed.
  2. All vehicles MUST be parked in an approved parking space in one of the designated Overnight Parking areas: P3, P4, P6, P8, P13, P16. A link to the Campus Parking Map is provided below. Overnight Parking Permits DO NOT guarantee a parking space in a specific parking area.
  3. When requested by the University, all vehicles MUST be relocated to support parking area maintenance or other campus requirements.
  4. All vehicles should be moved frequently to enable parking area maintenance.
  5. Parking in Bloomfield Centre parking area P5 is permitted until 3 AM to accommodate events. Parking in all other non-overnight parking areas is permitted until 1 AM.
