UofW Parking Update

To all students concerned with parking at the University of Windsor:

More information has been received on parking at the UofW.   The facts with students who are concerned are as follows:
-- Although passes are oversold in relation to spots available, parking services guarantees 100% that all students will receive a parking spot.  This may mean parking on lots that require a longer distance walk to campus.
-- If the parking spots were sold on a 1:1 ratio, there would be far too many spots available at all hours of the day and far too many students without a parking pass. 
-- A parking pass should be viewed as a right to park but not at a particular spot.  It is a right to park, and there is a guarantee that parking is available, but it may be at a location that requires 5-10 minutes of walking distance.

In comparison to other campuses across Ontario -- especially in the GTA -- the radius from which there are parking spots available is not that overwhelming.

Should you have any further questions or concerns, please contact Parking Services at 519-253-3000 Ext. 2413.
