Accommodation

Campus Security:

Campus Security is committed to engaging our community to make SFU a safe and secure environment to live, learn, and work. Campus Security is dedicated to providing the best public safety and resource protection services to our University community. Through our campus stakeholders and external partners, our goal is to facilitate a culture of security awareness, crime prevention and general safety at our University.

Parking Services is:

  • Stationing staff in the lots to monitor occupancy and direct traffic should the lots fill.
  • Working with Facilities Services to create additional spaces within the lots.
  • Monitoring general activity to determine if this is a one-time issue or an ongoing problem that will be dealt with.

As an Outdoor permit holder:

  • If you arrive after 10:30AM C Lot is likely full so proceed to one of the other Outdoor lots (B Lot or Discovery P3) rather than circling within C Lot.
  • The Outdoor lot of Discovery P3 always has a significant number of free spaces. Try this lot to determine if it is actually closer to your place of work/study than parking at the end of B Lot.
