Brock aims to increase Spring/Summer course accessibility

Through free parking, flexible scheduling and reduced accommodation costs, Brock University is working to make its Spring/Summer courses more accessible than ever.

Registration for the University’s Spring/Summer term opens Monday, March 5 with a variety of online and in-class offerings available to help students advance their education. For many students, the term is an opportunity to accelerate their degree.

“Brock’s Spring/Summer course offerings are designed to be as flexible as possible, allowing students to choose from online, blended and accelerated course formats,” said Anna Lathrop, Vice-Provost, Teaching, Learning and Student Success. “Together with the option of free parking, we are hopeful that students will be able to both facilitate their degree completion and balance summer employment opportunities.”

Adding value to the Spring/Summer term is a new parking model the University is rolling out to make campus more accessible for students as well as the broader Niagara community. Brock is introducing free parking in Zones 1 and 2 from May 1 through Aug. 31, during which parking permits and meter receipts will not be required.

For students who wish to stay on campus during the Spring/Summer term, Brock is also offering reduced residence rates between May and August. This will allow students from outside of Niagara or those from another institution looking to take a course by Letter of Permission, the opportunity to live on site while studying.

The Spring/Summer term provides students the chance to get ahead on their degree, pick up a context requirement or elective that is in high demand in the fall, retake a course to improve their mark or take courses in support of a change in major.
