Carpool spaces are reserved for those with registered carpool permits until 9am. More convenience for carpoolers!

Save money on gas, share the cost of parking, and score priority parking in designated carpool spots. Here's how:

  1. Find a Carpool Buddy.
  2. Fill out the Carpool Registration Form PDF - Please note that the first information block on the registration form is for Permit Holders, who will be the individual responsible for the associated group’s carpool permit. Permit Holders will be the carpooling group’s point of contact with the office of Transportation & Parking.
  3. Bring carpool registration, Camosun ID, and license plate number to the Campus Cashier.
  4. Obtain the carpool permit and display clearly in vehicle while parking at Camosun.
  5. Enjoy the prime parking spaces, save money by sharing costs, and reduce your carbon footprint.

Note: Obtaining a carpool permit does not guarantee a space will be available. If no spaces are available, please use general parking.


Eligibility for Camosun's Carpool Program is met by any vehicle containing two or more registered persons (including the driver) arriving in the same registered carpool vehicle, where the occupants would normally be driving and parking as individuals. The vehicle and all occupants must be currently registered in the Carpool program PDF.

Vehicles displaying a carpool permit are exclusively permitted to park in the signed prime carpool spots at both campuses—Lot 6 at Lansdowne and Lot 5 and 9 at Interurban. These spots are reserved for registered carpool permit holders until 9am. If designated spots are full, carpool vehicles may park anywhere in the General Lots.

The cost of the meter ticket is the same to park in these prime spots, but it can be shared among vehicle occupants. To register, simply show College Cashiers (Dawson Building at Lansdowne, Campus Centre at Interurban) a valid Camosun ID for all occupants and license plate numbers for all vehicles participating.

Elder parking stalls

To support the College’s Indigenization and Reconciliation project, and as a symbol of the respect we have for our local Indigenous Elders, we are pleased to provide Elder Parking stalls in Camosun lots.

There are two stalls at the Lansdowne campus in P1 (near Na'tsa'maht) and two stalls at the Interurban campus: P5 (near Portable A), and directly in front of the Alex & Jo Campbell Centre for Health and Wellness (CHW).

Note These stalls are exclusively reserved for Indigenous Elders at all times. Cars parked in the Elder Parking stalls without the proper permit granted by Eyēʔ Sqȃ’lewen will be ticketed or towed at the owner's expense.

Electric Vehicle (EV) charging and parking

Drive to campus in a more sustainable manner. Camosun provides EV Level 2 charging stations at both campuses. Vehicles must have a valid parking permit and parking/charging time is limited to 3 hours.
