Parking Infractions and Appeals:

Parking lots at the University are private property. Purchase of any parking permit or day pass constitutes an agreement from the purchaser to abide to the Rules and Regulations approved for the University community by the Board of Governors. Copies of this document are available in written form at Parking Services.

Notices are issued for a number of infractions which contravene these rules and regulations. All infractions are issued in accordance with the Trespass to Property Act, and failure to settle accounts may result in loss of parking privileges, towing of vehicles, and/or issuance of a Trespass Notice banning the offender's vehicle from campus.

All towing of vehicles at The University of Western Ontario is performed by a private contractor in accordance with City of London standards.

Please Do Not Ignore a Parking Ticket!

Accounts with unpaid fines run the risk of the following actions: parking privileges revoked, academic records sealed, vehicles towed, and/or account balance transfered to a collection agency. This is a fully automated process, and we suggest you deal with these problems promptly to avoid unnecessary charges.


All parking infractions, with the exception of towing and service fees, may be appealed within fourteen days of the infraction date.

Please Note:

  • Appeals will not be accepted after 14 days past issue date.
  • Appeals will not be reviewed with previous outstanding tickets on the account.
  • Photographs are now taken with each citation.
  • Provide specific details including; Pay & Display receipts, Special Event tickets or other supporting documentation pertinent to your appeal.
  • Be as precise as possible.
  • Indicate that the problem, for which you were cited, has been corrected. (eg: purchased a parking pass)
  • If this is your first infraction, indicate that you have made yourself familiar with the University parking rules and regulations.
