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 (auxiliary) 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.
Parking rates vary across the campus.
Because not everyone that comes to campus with a permit is here at the same time. This enables us to sell more permits than there are spaces so that as many people as possible can access 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.
Parking is actually a bargain compared to charges at other Ontario universities. Keep in mind that parking fees cover the cost of parking lot maintenance (e.g. paving, snow plowing).
The fines were recommended by our Parking and Traffic Committee. The idea is to discourage people from risking a ticket and getting towed.
Overnight permits are available from your residence facilities supervisor or from Parking Services. Overnight permits are not always available to all guests. These permits are sold on a first-come, first-served basis. Please try to arrange parking before your guest arrives to prevent disappointment.
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 at x 3200.
You should contact Parking Services at x4309 before unloading to find an available location. After unloading your vehicle, it must be moved to the nearest lot. Unloading restrictions are usually 15 minutes in service vehicle areas. Any vehicle found in a reserved lot without permission will be ticketed and/or towed.
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.
