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.

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.
