VIU NANAIMO PARKING PASS ADJUSTMENTS EFFECTIVE SEPTEMBER 2021

With a return to campus, demand for parking will resume, hence the rate adjustment back to the pre-COVID pricing levels. Parking terms will generally remain the same with the most significant adjustment related to long-term passes. VIU will no longer be offering annual parking passes, the longest term will now be four months (term pass). This adjustment has no impact on pricing. For example, before the pandemic an employee general pass was $600 per year, whereas a four-month (term) employee pass will now cost $200.

WHAT ARE THE ADJUSTED MONTHLY & TERM PERMIT FEES?
Employee & General Lots - $90.00 per month includes applicable taxes
$200.00 per 4 months (term) includes applicable taxes
Employee Economy Lots - $55.00 per month includes applicable taxes
$130.00 per 4 months (term) includes applicable taxes
Student general and Economy Lots - $45.00 per month includes applicable taxes
$100.00 per 4 months (term) includes applicable taxes
Daily pass - $8.00 per day
How do I buy the new parking passes?

A monthly pass can be bought online through Indigo. Daily passes will need to be purchased on campus at the pay stations or the Park Indigo App.

What other options are available if I don't want to use VIU Parking?

We encourage the use of public transit, bicycle use, walking and carpooling. Recently, VIU expanded the bicycle shelter near Building 190 and incorporated a fenced compound with restricted access to improve bicycle security. You will need your VIU student/employee ID card to access the fenced compound.
