Transportation & Parking

Parking at Camosun

If bringing a personal vehicle to campus is a necessity, parking is provided on a first-come, first-served basis. Parking spaces cannot be guaranteed or reserved.

License Plate Recognition (LPR) System

On June 4, Camosun College will be launching a License Plate Recognition (LPR) in our general parking lots. Please note that, at this time, LPR will NOT apply to employee parking or departmental guest parking. You may have noticed new signs being installed in the lots. These signs are the first step in a transition from a paper-based permit system to license plate recognition. LPR is a widely adopted technology used by many public sector organizations.

Find out more and read our FAQs here.

Parking rates and services are in effect Monday to Saturday, 7 am – 10 pm. Staff and short-term lots are available for general use after 5 pm with the purchase of a parking permit. There is no overnight parking.

Please note that parking permits can be used on both campuses. You can purchase a daily ticket at Interurban in the morning and then use the same ticket in the afternoon at Lansdowne.

Parking at Interurban in lot P8 is free on weekends for Saanich parks and trail users.

See our Campus Maps for parking areas.
