Clinic clients receive a special parking rate of $2 per hour. Here is how to access the rate:

  • Park in a “Reserved Clinic Client” parking space in front of the Sadlon Centre for Health, Wellness and Sciences.
  • Go to the clinic registration desk to provide your licence plate number and pay your fee of $2 per hour.

Alternatively, you may buy an hourly or daily parking permit through the HonkMobile app. The special rate does not apply if you pay using this method.

If you do not pay for parking you will be subject to a parking ticket that is likely far more expensive than the $2 hourly rate.  Parking tickets for violations range from $20 to $300.
