Parking

On-campus parking is free at all Georgian locations until the end of the fall 2020 semester.

Please refer to the instructions and FAQs below for further information.

Barrie students and employees must register on the parking portal for a free fall semester parking permit. Employees on payroll deductions as of March 2020 are excluded from this process as the Parking Office has automatically issued your free permit for the fall semester.

Barrie visitors: Parking is also free for visitors conducting business on campus, but you must register via HonkMobile for your hourly or daily permit. Please do this before or immediately upon arrival. You can download the Honk app in the App Store or Google Play.

Parking systems used at Georgian campuses

  • At the Orillia, Owen Sound, Midland and South Georgian Bay campuses, we use an automated parking system. Continue reading this page for details.
  • There are no parking systems at the Orangeville or Muskoka campuses.
  • Parking on campus is on a first-come-first-served basis in all parking areas.
  • Metered and/or reserved lots are for use by visitors conducting day-to-day business at the college.
  • Regardless of campus location, all parking permit holders need to keep their profile up to date in the Parking Portal.

Lost or stolen cards

If your card is lost or stolen, report it immediately to the Parking office. The missing card will be cancelled and a new card issued. If the card is lost or stolen, there will be a $10.00 non-refundable activation fee to replace the lost or stolen card.

Accessibility

Designated parking spots for persons with disabilities are located in parking areas within college grounds. Only vehicles displaying valid Ontario Ministry of Transportation disabled parking permits may park in these designated areas. Drivers of these vehicles are subject to the same rules and regulations and pay the same fees as all others parking on campus.

Individuals being dropped off or picked up and not using parking facilities are asked to make arrangements through their program office for exit at no cost to the drop-off or pick-up vehicle. College security and municipal bylaw officers will issue tickets and/or tow vehicles in cases of abuse of designated parking spaces on campus.

Parking violations

Parking lots at the college are private property. Parking a vehicle on campus constitutes an agreement on the part of the motorist to abide by the rules and regulations approved for the college community.

Violation notices are issued for a number of infractions that contravene these rules and regulations. Violation rates charged are comparable to municipal charges for similar offenses. All violations are issued in accordance with the Trespass to Property Act. Failure to honour accounts may result in loss of parking privileges, towing of vehicles, issuance of a trespass notice banning the offender’s vehicle from campus, or sealing of academic records or any combination thereof.

Appeals

All appeals are to be submitted online through the Parking Citation Appeal form within 14 days of the notification date. Early payment timelines do not lapse pending the outcome of the appeal. Normally, parking appeals are reviewed within 14 business days for consideration depending on the volume of appeals. Do not pay for the citation before receiving a response. A valid appeal may only be based on the contention that a violation was issued contrary to the parking and traffic regulations or in error.

Paying you fine

Fines must be paid within 14 days of the ticket being issued. Failure to pay will result in academic records being sealed, parking privileges being revoked and vehicles being towed if found on campus. Prompt payment, within five days of the fine, may result in a 50 per cent reduction in the penalty.

Special circumstances

Requests for temporary permission to leave a vehicle in a parking lot overnight should be directed to campus security staff in advance. Arrangements made in this manner will avert expensive parking fines or towing charges.
