Getting a Parking Permit
You obtain a parking permit by registering your car online with your Canisius username and password, and then pre-paying the fee with a credit or debit card. Before school starts, you can pick up your pass in the Student Accounts Office (bring your license or student ID). It's relatively painless (well, other than the money you have to shell out). Anyone can get a D permit (for the parking ramp, KAC, Demerly, Spillman, and Fibron lots), but permits for other parking areas closer to residential parts of campus (C, E, and F permits) are limited. First-come, first-served.

A program called "Operation Snowbound" allows commuter students to live on campus for the winter months.
