COVID Update [July 6, 2021]

Ontario has now entered Step 2 of the province's reopening plan. Many of our usual parking areas will continue to be open to the campus community, at no charge, for the remainder of the summer; details are below. 

Complimentary Parking 

Most lots campus-wide will have gates raised and parking will be complimentary. Exceptions are the Medical Science and Kent Patient Lots where gates will be down (these lots are reserved for clinic patients only) and the Chemistry Lot gates will be down as of August 16. Enjoy free parking at this time but please park only in regular unmarked parking spaces; do not park in reserved spaces, service vehicle spaces, fire lanes or hash lined areas.

Faculty/Staff Permits 

Faculty/Staff will not be charged for parking for the months of April through August, 2021.

  • Customers using payroll deduction will not have parking fees deducted these months. Permits will remain intact and no action is required.
  • Customers who have prepaid by cash, credit or debit for these months can have fees transferred for future months. Refunds/credits will be assessed and issued once the full extent of the closure is better understood. 

Student Permits 

Students who had purchased 2020/21 permits have been refunded as detailed in previous communications.

Other monthly permits 

Refunds and/or credits will be issued for the month on a case-by-case basis 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.

We thank you for your patience as we continue to work to provide our customers great service despite these challenges

Information herein is subject to change and we will continue to assess in alignment with the broader campus and provincial guidelines. Further updates will be provided as information becomes available.
