Parking

Campus Parking for Retirees 

Complimentary retiree parking passes are available, on request to Parking and Transportation Services, to:

  • all Emeriti;
  • faculty/staff with 25 or more years of continuous service to the University of Calgary.

According to the University, such complimentary passes are viewed by Canada Revenue Agency as a taxable benefit. Recipients must take one of two actions:

  • Self-declare the value of usage on their personal income tax—a form will be provided annually for permit holders to reconfirm their understanding of this requirement; OR
  • Instruct Parking and Transportation Services at the time of permit issuance that a T4 slip is needed—this slip will reflect the full current market value of the annual parking pass.

Full information about regulations and conditions for parking, can  be found at:

Application forms with Taxable Benefit Release forms are available from Parking and Transportation Services at the Olympic Volunteer Centre (1833 Crowchild Trail NW; north end of McMahon Stadium)—office hours are 7:30 a.m. to 5:00 p.m., Monday to Friday (excluding holidays), 403-220-6771 or parking@ucalgary.ca.

Note:  The parking privileges of retirees do not pass to the spouse once the retiree is deceased.
