STAC is concerned with the cultural production, reception and interpretation of the fine and performing arts. From the classics to popular culture, from ancient drawings and rituals to the avant-garde, from the modern to the postmodern, the program examines the products of, and our readings of, individual or collaborative artistic endeavours from the perspective of both the cultural producer and the audience.

Downtown St. Catharines
The Marilyn I. Walker School of Fine and Performing Arts is located at 15 Artists’ Common in St. Catharines, Ontario (postal code L2R 0B5). As on-site parking is limited in our location, you may need to park in one of the several other public parking locations. Download a map showing all of the parking locations run by the City of St.Catharines.
Students attending classes at the new campus located in downtown St. Catharines and/or main campus will have a variety of transportation options open to them. With limited parking spaces at the new downtown campus building there will be no student parking at the downtown campus building. Students will have options to take transit, park at Brock’s main campus and take the bus to downtown, park downtown and take the bus to main campus etc.

- How often am I on main campus and/or, how often at the downtown campus?

- What is my transportation budget?
- Where will I be living and how does that impact my transportation plan?
- Is it better for me to take public transit for all of my needs?

- Are carpooling and cycling options for me?
- Transit: Students have access to a bus pass via their Brock ID card and bus pass sticker available through the Brock University Student Union. This provides them with access to St. Catharines (yourbus.com), Niagara Falls and Welland Transit from September through April.
- Main campus: Parking permits valid at Brock’s main campus are available for purchase by 4 month or 8 month terms through Parking Services. As the downtown campus lot is very small, these permits will not be valid at the downtown campus building, only on the main campus. Permits rates vary depending on location. Visit Parking Services for current permit information. Daily rate parking is also available on Brock’s main campus for $10 per day – valid from as early as 6:30 am to 2:00am (no overnight parking except for residence students with residence permits). Short‐term hourly parking is available on campus at meters and pay machines at $3.00 per hour. For more information about parking on main campus.
- Downtown: Purchase a monthly parking pass for a City of St. Catharines parking facility. Prices start at $85.00 per month for covered garage facilities or $65.00 for uncovered lots. Short‐term pay parking is available in downtown St. Catharines at meters or pay machine areas at $1.50 per hour (including at lots adjacent to the MIWSFPA and next door at the Meridian Centre).
