It is mandatory for all motor vehicles parked on the Saint Paul College campus to use the controlled parking access system.
Visitors may park anywhere in the lots and ramp except for marked reserved spaces. Vehicles parked in handicapped parking spaces require a valid State-Issued Handicapped Permit. All violators will be ticketed.
Access to the parking lots is made via controlled entry. All parking at Saint Paul College is paid parking:
- Hourly Parking for visitors;
- Access Card Parking for students taking classes in the current term;
- Access Card Parking for employees who are signed up for a payroll deduction.
Upon initial registration, students are entitled to a parking access card. Parking access cards will remain active as long as the student is enrolled at Saint Paul College. Enrollment status will be monitored, and cards will be active/inactive based on current registration status. Possession of a parking access card neither reserves nor guarantees a parking space.
Hourly parking rates are as follows:
|Under 20 minutes
|180 minutes and over
Entering: Use only the Marshall Avenue entrance.
Visitors and employees who do not choose to have a parking access card must enter the lot
via the Marshall Avenue visitor entrance and obtain a short-term parking access ticket from the machine
in the visitor parking entrance lane. Directions to the College
Exiting: Use only the Marshall Avenue exit.
The short-term parking access ticket must be paid at the machine in the lane when exiting the lot or the machine in the Parking Ramp 3rd Floor Lobby using cash, credit card or a pre-paid parking exit voucher.
