Parking

The Ron Joyce Centre has 275 parking spots. Approximately 260 spots are allocated to permit holders. Hang tags for rear view mirrors, rather than transponders, are distributed to permit holders. The lot is not gated. Students must purchase parking permits for the Ron Joyce Centre via our online permit sales application. Our online permit sales system is available for all new permit applications and renewals.

Parking Pass Pickup

The Parking Office regularly delivers parking passes to the Ron Joyce Centre (RJC).  We recommend ordering your parking pass two weeks prior to the start of the required month.  This order schedule will best support delivery of the pass to the RJC in Burlington.

The Parking Office delivers parking passes to the RJC as follows:

  • Weekly: Months of September, January, and May
  • Twice Monthly (First Week, Last Week): All Other Months

If you require a parking pass outside of this delivery schedule, pickup is available on Main Campus (in the ET Clark Centre).
