Hourly and daily parking
Metered and/or reserved lots are for use by visitors conducting day-to-day business at the college. Parking can be purchased on an hourly or daily basis.
When entering the parking facilities at the Orillia, Owen Sound or South Georgian Bay campuses, the parking gates lift automatically to allow access. When leaving the parking area, you must activate the gate by using your coins or token.
Coin fees are posted at the entrance and exit gates and are paid upon exiting campus parking areas. Current coin fees are listed below. This fee applies each time you exit the parking area. Correct change is required. Parking fees are subject to change without notice.
Monthly, semester and annual parking
Parking cards can be purchased in annual, two-semester, one-semester or monthly terms. There are savings in purchasing longer term parking cards. Fees are listed below. All cards require a $5 non-refundable fee in addition to the fees listed below.
Students living in residence must purchase parking passes in person at a designated parking area.

Lost or stolen cards

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 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.

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 your fine
Fines must be paid within 14 days of 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.
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.
