If you don't have a parking pass, you must use the  Honk smart phone app to pay for parking. The Honk app can be used to pay for parking in the front or back parking lots around Duncan McArthur Hall. Parking rates (as of Nov. 2022) are $2.00 an hour or $10.00 for the day. Please note that these rates may change - please check the app for the most up to date rates. 

City of Kingston parking tickets are issued for parking violations. Once you receive a ticket, the Faculty has no means of waiving it and cannot pay the fine for you. Parking permits are not required after 5 pm or on weekends.


Teacher Candidate Parking

This is an exclusive offer for teacher candidates (Consecutive BEd, DipEd and final year Concurrent) only. Permit holders can use this permit to park behind Duncan McArthur Hall in the paved lots (not the gravel lots at Richardson Stadium).

This special permit agreement provides the convenience of only paying for parking during scheduled classes (no payment is taken for teaching placement weeks).​

Quiet Space

A quiet space (B174) is available where students and staff can take time for reflection, meditation and prayer to empower them in their daily life.
