Useful Student Links

    Student Parking:

    In order to have things ready for you when classes start, we ask that you please use the above link to register for parking before you arrive to the new medical school building.

    It takes some time for the property managers to process your parking requests, so please register as soon as possible to ensure access when you arrive for your first day of Orientation.  Please let our office know if you run into any issues when completing this form.  As a reminder, all students will park in lot P5. When you are completing the parking registration form under the terms of the Parking Policy Agreement (page 6 of 7) it states that those parking in P5 will be charged a monthly fee of 45 dollars if applicable. Please note that students do not pay for parking and will not be charged the parking fee. Student Parking Map
