The U-Park system is easy to use:

  • Park your vehicle in a UAlberta lot or car park.
  • Visit the nearest U-Park pay station or download the Honk app.
  • Follow the prompts: Enter your licence plate number, select the amount of time you'd like to park, and pay with your credit card, coins (no change is provided) or department coupon code.
  • You're on your way!

With U-Park, you don't need to display a daily or hourly parking receipt in your vehicle. This integrated parking system sends your licence plate number and parking information to our parking enforcement officers (so they know you've paid).
