CUPE 3287 provides opportunities for members to purchase parking access in choice campus lots during Fall Term, Winter Term and the four Spring/Summer quarters. Parking is made available as a service to members on a cost-recovery basis. (Parking in Faculty & Staff lots is not normally available to sessional lecturers through U of S Parking and Transportation Services, since they charge for parking on an annual contract basis only.)

About four weeks before each term, members are notified via the Union email mailing list (and on the Union website) that sales will open on a given day. Thereafter, parking will be available for purchase by members on a first-come, first served basis.

After the notification each term, those wishing to purchase parking should contact the Parking Coordinator at to request a spot and indicate day and time parking needs, as well as a parking lot preference for Lot F or Lot V. See Campus Parking Lots Map.

Members must arrange for payment by e-transfer, cheque or cash.
