6.Parking:
Applicable for Head Office location only!

Parking passes must be obtained prior to the start of your class/workshop/exam. Parking machines are available at several locations on the campus and they ONLY accept VISA or Mastercard. The machines provide the ability to purchase a daily, weekly or monthly pass (2 week courses) unless sold out. A parking pass no longer needs to be displayed in the windshield of your car as it is all recorded through the machine, using your license plate (memorize your plate number before going to the machine to save yourself walking back to your car!). To avoid a parking ticket, please do not park in the "short term daily parking only" area.

If you are here for 2 weeks and the machine states sold out, a trip to the Mohawk Parking Office on your lunch break to inquire about a 2 week pass might be the way to go. We do suggest obtaining the first day of parking and attempt to obtain the 2 week pass on your lunch break to avoid a parking ticket.
