Parking in someone else’s spot can lead to some serious holes in your pocketbook, especially if you’re a college student. The college issues between 40-60 parking tickets per day on campus, with up to 2-3 vehicles being towed per day, according to Manager of Parking Services at Fanshawe, Marion Dietze.
Two-term parking passes are valid from September 2016 to April 2017 at a rate of $338.00 Returning out-of-town students with a parking card will not be required to pay the $12 parking card fee. All two-term parking cards are offered by way of lottery only. Online application for the Student Parking Lottery is available from June 1, 2016 to July 15, 2016.
If parking passes are too expensive for you, Dietze adds that it’s important to take advantage of the bus pass included with registration, as it is unlimited transportation around the city, and is free of charge.
She also adds that parking at a friend’s house close to the college could be a viable option for someone looking to save money on parking passes.
