New Places to Park This Fall

Trent University’s Security and Parking Services personnel have been busy this summer overseeing construction to enhance parking lots, walkways and roadways on campus, as part of a five-year infrastructure improvement plan.

This academic year is expected to be especially busy, and the Security and Parking Services staff would like to remind students to give themselves some extra time to find appropriate parking spaces. There are plenty of blue parking spaces available and if the first blue lot you try is full, kindly move on to another.

Also note, student parking permits are blue while staff and faculty permits are red -- the parking lots on campus correspond to these permits. After 6 p.m. and on weekends, all parking lots are open and available to anyone free-of-charge.

For those who don’t drive, additional buses have been added to the schedule and 11 new bicycle racks have been installed on campus.

The following are some of the changes that have taken place over the summer, for the convenience of students, faculty and staff members.

On the West Bank

  • Some significant changes have taken place around Lady Eaton College, including additional spaces in Parking Lot G, which will provide 110 student spaces. The roadway to the College has been widened and a path that will lead pedestrians and cyclists to the Child Care Centre and the crosswalk, en route to the Athletic Centre, has been added alongside. A second pathway in the vicinity has been created to lead from Parking Lot G to the Bata Library area. These changes will accommodate additional vehicles and promote walking and cycling on campus.
  • The roadway through Parking Lot P - the northernmost lot on campus - has been paved, making exiting the campus, in that direction, easier.
  • Parking Lot H has been reconfigured to provide 25 additional staff and faculty spaces. Those with red permits will now park in the front half of the lot and those with blue permits will park at the back.

On the East Bank

  • Two new parking lots, including Parking Lot W, by Mackenzie House, and U by Otonabee College/new residence area have been constructed. A pathway has been added alongside the roadway. Parking Lot Q was improved and enlarged at the end of last year.
  • Plans for the near future include the addition of parking meters in Parking Lot S and parking spaces along the roadway behind Otonabee College.

At Gzowski College on Argyle Street, a new pay and display system for students is in place.
