Student Parking

For the 2014/2015 school year all students have the following three parking options:

1. Student Parking Lottery

A lottery process is used to select the eligible student parking permit holders. For further information on the lottery selection process, please refer to the Selection Process: Student Lottery page.

Students who live within 4 kilometers of the university are not eligible to apply, with the exception of students with physical disabilities and students living in residence. Students who require an accessible parking space must submit a copy of their Ministry of Ontario Accessible Parking Permit separately to Service Laurier (GRH202) in addition to their online application form.

Any student who has circumstances they believe merit special consideration for a parking permit, AND who live within the 4 kilometer boundary, should provide supporting documentation in addition to a completed student parking permit application form to the Facilities Support Office.

Please ensure you review the On-Campus Parking map here to view Student Parking Locations.

2.  The Market Centre Parkade (950 spaces)

This garage is located on campus directly behind Grand River Hall and is a three level parking garage.

Parkade permits can be purchased at Service Laurier Brantford starting September 2nd. The fee for parking at the Parkade is $361.04 plus applicable taxes for 8 months. Due to income tax reasons the applicable tax for permits varies between 'Residence' students versus 'Non-Residence Students'. Alternatively you may purchase a permit from the parkade itself on a month-to-month basis.

If you choose to purchase a Parkade permit through Service Laurier Brantford, full payment is due upon pick up of permit.  Service Laurier accepts Cash, Cheque, Debit and Credit.
Cheques can be made payable to Wilfrid Laurier University; please be sure to include your student ID number on the cheque.

3.  Municipal Parking Lots

The City of Brantford also offers Municipal Parking Lots near campus.  They can be contacted at 519-753-2311 and their office is located at 59 Icomm Drive.  Street parking has a 2 to 3 hour limit with no re-parking on the same street limitation.
