Founders 5 parking lot extension underway through mid-August

Emergency notification

The university’s Student Life (U5) and U6 buildings have been relocated to a temporary new home at the west end of the existing Founders 2 parking lot. The moving of the U5 and U6 buildings creates the space needed for the construction of the new Ontario Tech A5 Building (scheduled to open in Fall 2021).

The relocating of the U5 and U6 buildings has reduced the number of available parking spots in Founders Lot 2.

To compensate for the loss of parking spaces in Founders Lot 2, crews will add 130 new parking spots to Founders Lot 5 (north of the Campus Ice Centre). Construction to add new spaces to Founders Lot 5 are underway and will continue through mid-August. During this period, Founders Lot 5 will remain open, but approximately 60 existing spaces in the lot will be temporarily unavailable due to construction.

Your patience and understanding is appreciated.
