Applying a permit for a parking space with a heating outlet for the 2019-2020 season

Parking at the University of Oulu will be reformed in 2019, and a shared campus parking model will be introduced in Linnanmaa (participants: University of Oulu, University Properties of Finland Ltd and Oulu University of Applied Sciences). The introduction of the new parking model will be announced in more detail well in advance.

NOTE!

The fee for a parking space in the 2019–2020 heating season is €100 (incl. VAT at 24%). The change in the fee is due to the Tax Administration's precedent decision, according to which the renting of parking spaces with heating outlets by universities to their staff is subject to tax. Previously, this was not subject to tax.

Parking areas covered by the electronic application process:

  • Linnanmaa – all parking areas 
  • FoM – all parking areas
  • FoM/Pathology
  • Lynet area (non-university customers only)
  • Koskela unit
