Loading zones are used to load/unload materials from your vehicle. These are not to be used as parking spaces. Follow these simple procedures to ensure you do not receive a ticket:

  • Never leave your vehicle unattended. (If you must leave your vehicle unattended, leave your four-way flashers on. This will inform enforcement that you are loading/unloading.
  • Vehicles will be ticketed if there is no loading/unloading activity at the vehicle within five minutes of the arrival of enforcement.

Parking Services is a self-supporting (ancillary) department. As such, it receives no tax dollars or tuition fees to fund its operations. Revenue derived from parking fees offset costs associated with the construction, maintenance, and administration of campus parking facilities and operations.

Permit holders are not all on campus at the same time which enables us to sell more permits then there are spaces. This allows us to provide greater access to parking at Brock. Under normal circumstances, everyone possessing a permit should have no problem finding a parking space. Should lots become full, we make all efforts to redirect permit holders to other parking lots.

The fines were recommended by our Parking and Traffic Committee. The idea is to discourage people from risking a ticket and getting towed.

There are a number of safety features in place around the University, including emergency phones and foot patrol. If you need assistance to get to your vehicle, please contact or Campus Security at x 3200.

Sometimes vehicles have obtained permission in advance to park in restricted areas. It may also be that enforcement personnel passed through the area before the other parking infractions occurred.

Report it to Parking Services immediately. There is a charge for a replacement permit.

You will have to park in another lot. If you are severely disabled and are unable to do this, we suggest you park in any non-reserved space and advise Parking Services. You will be ticketed if you park in a reserved area.
