Visitor Parking

When visiting our campuses please park in a 30 minute visitor parking spot, or purchase a parking ticket from one of the ticket kiosks in our lots. There are several transit stops on campus if you are arriving by bus.

When parking (unless you’re in a 30 minute temporary spot) you must have a valid parking permit or a valid paid parking receipt visible on your dashboard, purchased from the “pay station” machines in the lot, or from the bookstore on campus.

If you are having trouble finding a spot, Lot A at the Welland Campus (in front of the building) is day parking only, and is mostly used by visitors to the campus.

Pay stations provide half hour, hourly or daily parking receipts. These machines accept $.25, $1.00, $2.00 Canadian coins and Visa and MasterCard payments.

For more information visit Parking Services.

Temporary Parking Spaces

Temporary parking is permitted in designated spaces for a 30 minute maximum. Temporary spaces will be denoted by a sign. These designated spaces are monitored closely by Municipal Bylaw Officers and Parking Attendants. Violators will be ticketed. This 30-minute visitor parking is available at the Welland Campus in Lot A & C. 30-minute visitor parking is available at the Niagara-on-the-Lake Campus in Lot A.
