If you are an active Langara employee and eligible for benefits, you can request a parking pass from Facilities Department which allows you to park in any regular unmarked stall in the general surface and underground lots.

The college utilizes a license plate recognition parking system, so rather than displaying a parking decal, your license plate will be registered into the patrol system.

To get a parking pass

  1. Log into Workday and under the Benefits section, you will need to elect the Parking Benefit. Step by step instructions are provided in this job aide (Change Parking Elections) found on the Workday training site.
  2. Provide your name, Langara ID number, and license plate number in an email to parking@langara.ca
  3. Once processed, you will receive an email confirmation that your pass is active.

To cancel a parking pass

  1. Log into Workday to view or change your parking status. Step by step instructions are provided in this job aide (Change Parking Elections) found on the Workday training site
  2. Your pass will automatically be deactivated at the end of the current month

Taxable Benefit

Employee parking passes may be treated as a taxable benefit and all employees who choose to have one may be automatically assessed a taxable benefit amount by payroll for each month the pass is active. You can view this in Workday under Benefits > View > Benefit Elections where it will be listed as “Employer Contribution (monthly)”.

For more information regarding parking as a taxable benefit, please see the FAQs on the People & Culture SharePoint site.

Contractor Passes
If you are employed by a company contracted to provide services to the college and work predominantly on campus, you may qualify to purchase a discounted Contractor Parking Pass. Please contact parking@langara.ca for more information. This pass is issued at the discretion of the Facilities Department and is not available to Langara students and employees.

Preferred Lot
The Employee Preferred Lot is a small reserved lot located on the northeast corner of the campus. Employees may choose to register for a preferred lot parking spot in lieu of using the general lot. Available spaces are limited. Please contact parking@langara.ca for details.


Who is eligible for a parking pass?
To be eligible for an employee parking pass you need to be a current Langara employee who is eligible for benefits with the college. The length of your parking pass will be tied to the duration of your contract.

I am driving a different vehicle or a courtesy car. How can I change my license plate?
Please email parking@langara.ca or visit the Facilities Trailer in person and our staff can make the change for you given enough notice in advance.

Where can I park with this parking pass?
The employee parking pass is valid in the general lots which include the underground parkade and the west and southeast student lots. Registered Preferred Lot parkers can park in the northeast lot accessed off Ontario Street. The two are not interchangeable.

Do I need to renew my pass at the end of the year/semester?
If you have a pass as a permanent employee, then you do not need to renew as the pass will carry over indefinitely until you choose to cancel or otherwise become ineligible. If you are issued a pass as a contract employee, then the pass will automatically expire at the end of your contract(s). If time has elapsed between contracts, please log into Workday to ensure your parking benefit status is reflected correctly.

I have two vehicles that I routinely drive to work. Is there a way to add a secondary plate?
Yes. You will need to provide proof of ownership of both vehicles. Send an email to parking@langara.ca for details.
