Centennial College will continue to provide free parking where applicable throughout the Winter 2021 and Summer 2021 semesters for those staff and students who are authorized to be on campus either to teach or participate in a lab/studio class or for administrative purposes. Bear in mind most classes and many services will be delivered online or remotely, so most staff and students will not be permitted on campus.
While our parking gates will remain raised to provide free access, the lone exception will be the upper-level parking lot that serves Morningside Campus, located off of Military Trail. As this property is owned by the University of Toronto, they will begin to charge for parking as of September 1 and Centennial staff and students, unfortunately, will not be exempt.
The gates to the lower lot accessible from Morningside Avenue – which is operated by Centennial – will be open throughout the day. Free parking will be available on a first-come, first-serve basis. If you cannot find a space, please do not block other vehicles or fire routes as your car will be ticketed and towed away. You do have the option to pay to use the upper-level University of Toronto Scarborough parking lots adjacent to Military Trail.
Thank you for your anticipated cooperation, and please drive with care when on campus.
