Pay & Display Machines Unavailable

Pay & Display machines across campus will be unavailable beginning Wednesday, June 7th as they undergo an upgrade.  Please utilize Honk Mobile to make payments during this time.  Signage will be posted in areas where the machines are normally located with this information.  Machines will be returned to their locations as soon as the upgrade is complete.

Convocation Parking

Parking Services would like to remind our permit holders that convocation ceremonies are taking place on campus from June 12, 2023-June 23, 2023.  Parking volumes will be significantly higher than normal during this time.  Huron Flats, Medway and South Valley lots are designated for parking during convocation.  We strongly encourage those who normally park in these lots to park in other areas, where your permit allows, over these two weeks. 

For our Convocation guests, signage will direct you to convocation parking areas on campus.  

          * June 7 ceremony (Schulich), parking will be available in the South Valley parking lot. 
          * June 12-16 ceremonies, parking will be available in the South Valley and Medway parking lots.
          * June 19-23 ceremonies, parking will be available in the South Valley and Huron Flats parking lots.

Shuttles to Alumni Hall will be offered from these locations.

Accessible parking and parking for those with small children will be available in the Alumni Thompson parking lot for all convocation ceremonies.

Please see our parking map for directions.  

We thank you for your support and cooperation during this exciting time on campus as we celebrate our students!
