Kent Drive/Medical Science Lots - Clinic Patient Parking Only

Many patient clinics on campus remain open. Just a reminder to faculty, staff, students, and other guests to campus that the Medical Science and the Kent Drive Lots are for registered clinic patients only. All others are asked to park in staff/student lots where gates are raised and parking is complimentary through the end of February.

Thank you for your understanding.

COVID Update [February 2021]

In light of the province’s current directive, as of December 26, Western Parking & Visitor Services is moving to an essential services model.

What this means for parking customers:

  • Parking Gates - will be raised through to the end of February. Please park only in regular unmarked parking spaces; do not park in reserved spaces, service vehicle spaces, fire lanes or hash lined areas.
  • Parking Office – will be closed to in-person service until further notice.
  • Faculty/Staff Permits – Faculty/Staff will not be charged for parking for the month of February.
  • Student Permits – students who have annual or second term permits will receive a prorated refund for January and February.
  • Other monthly permits- refunds and/or credits will be issued for January and February.

When will you see your parking refund/credit?

Faculty/Staff on payroll reduction:  parking fees will not be deducted for the month of January or February.

All other parking permit holders:  we will be assessing refunds/credits in the months ahead once a clearer picture of what is owed back to each of our customers is determined. Everyone will receive appropriate reimbursement for the period of the shutdown.

It is expected that parking fees will resume for the month of March. This is subject to change and we will continue to assess in alignment with the broader campus and provincial guidelines.

We thank you for your patience as we continue to work (from home!) to provide our customers great service in spite of these challenges.

The staff at Western Parking understand how stressful these days can be for everyone. Stay healthy, calm and safe, and together we will weather this storm!

Further updates will be provided as information becomes available.
