Parking Enforcement, Regulations, and Violations

The UPEI Security Services Division enforces parking on campus.

A fine will be imposed for each violation of the UPEI Traffic and Parking Policy.

  • No person shall operate a motor vehicle in a parking area or lot in excess of 15 km per hour.
  • No person shall operate a motor vehicle on the perimeter road in excess of 40 km per hour.
  • A valid parking space is constituted as being between two yellow lines, in a recognized parking area.
  • Vehicles parking in areas other than recognized parking spaces (grass, roadway, etc.) as well as any safety and access routes, will be ticketed and may be towed at the owner's expense.
  • Parking time must be purchased at parking meters regardless of whether the vehicle displays a UPEI parking permit or not.
  • Drop-off areas are specifically reserved for drivers dropping people off. Vehicles must be occupied at all times in drop-off areas.
  • Individuals planning to leave their vehicle on campus overnight during fair-weather months may use any appropriate lot. Winter parking restrictions are in effect from November 1 through March 31 and stipulate that General Parking Lot A is the only approved "overnight" parking lot. Residents of Andrew Hall and Bernardine Hall may park overnight in the Andrew Hall lot, or General Parking Lot B during the winter on the provision that these vehicles be moved to General Parking Lot A during storm conditions and until plowing operations have been completed after a storm. A violation of this policy may result in the vehicle being removed from the campus at the owner's expense.
  • Appeals for traffic and parking violations may be submitted to Security Services, in writing, within 14 days of the enforcement action. Visit the Appeal a Parking Violation page.
  • Any fine not paid will become a University receivable and subject to the existing collection policies of the University. Students with unpaid accounts will be not provided with transcripts, either official or unofficial until such accounts are settled to the satisfaction of the University.
  • Where repeat traffic violations have occurred, or where normal enforcement action has proven ineffective, the Director of Facilities Management may suspend an individual's parking privileges for not less than one month or more than one year.
  • The University reserves the right to exclude any person or motor vehicle from the campus.
