Parking at Huron
The safety of our community is vital. Please do not park in Fire Routes at any time.
The Huron Parking Office is located in the Huron Dining Hall in the same location as the Mail Room. Regular business hours are from 8:30 to 4pm Monday to Friday. If you have any questions regarding parking please visit the Huron Parking Office. Please note that our lot is enforced by Western Parking Services who ticket for infractions. Tickets are paid to Western Parking and any appeals must be submitted to them online.
Both of Huron's gated lots require a parking permit registered to the user and the vehicle being parked. Huron offers annual, term and monthly permits on a first-come, first-served basis. Parking permits are available for sale online beginning in July. We are currently sold out of Term 2 and monthly permits.
Monday through Friday the gated lots require a pre-purchased parking permit and card to enter, available only through the online application. Complimentary parking is ONLY offered in this lot from Friday beginning at 7:00 p.m. through to Monday morning ending at 3:00 a.m.
If you have misplaced your parking permit or card, you will be required to use the Pay and Display lot, and obtain a new permit from the Parking Office. Huron University assumes no responsibility for damage or loss to vehicles or contents, however caused, while parking on Huron property.
Reserved parking at Huron requires a Permit to park in this area. Permits must be pre-arranged prior to your arrival through a faculty or staff member, as spaces are limited. Please contact Ashley Shantz, 519.438.7224 or email email@example.com to obtain a reserved permit.
Tickets purchased from the Pay and Display meter are not valid in the reserved parking area, refunds will not be issued and you will be subject to a fine.
All persons parking a vehicle in the Pay and Display area are required to purchase a ticket. Tickets are $3 per hour and the machine takes exact cash or credit. Please follow the instructions from the machine. A ticket will be printed and must be displayed face up on the dashboard of the vehicle. Please note the Pay and Display Meter does not give change or offer refunds once money has been given.
If you would prefer, Huron now offers HonkMobile in its Pay and Display lot. You will need to set up an account at the App Store or Google Play to use the HonkMobile app.
HonkMobile recently expanded its coverage at Western University to include all campus metered parking, and allows students, staff and visitors to pay for and top up parking directly from their smartphone, tablet or computer.
The Pay and Display/Reserved Parking is a monitored lot, and does not offer complimentary parking on evenings or weekends. Any vehicle parked without proper payment, or in a Reserved spot without a permit, or parked outside a legal parking spot will be subject to a fine, please see Western Enforcement for details. If the Pay and Display lot is full, you must select a different lot on campus to park legally in.
All Pay and Display parking is on a first-come-first-serve basis and it is not possible to reserve or guarantee a spot. All paid parking, whether using the receipt machine or HonkMobile, are only valid in Pay and Display parking areas.
Huron has two gated parking areas for students, faculty and staff who have purchased a parking permit. The north gated lot is used by faculty and staff. The south gated lot is available for students as well as faculty and staff. Both of these lots require a pre-purchased parking permit and card to enter Monday through Friday.
Complimentary parking is offered in these lots from Friday beginning at 7:00 p.m. through to Monday morning ending at 3:00 a.m. During this time, the parking gate will be up.
