If you are driving to the College, please note that during the week there is a fee for parking. Parking is enforced until 5:00 pm Monday – Friday. Parking is $5 per day and the machine accepts only credit card payments at this time (no cash or debit). The parking lot is controlled by Indigo parking – not Columbia College. To access this parking, instead of taking the yield into the business park, please go straight and follow the fence along Deerfoot Trail (see the red line on the Campus Map). There is an Indigo pay parking station to take the payment. The parking pass you receive from the machine must be placed on your dashboard and left in your vehicle. To access your classroom – please walk towards the Bus Stop, walk between the buildings (803 and 805) and then straight across the parking lot to Building 4. It is approximately a 60 second walk.
If you attend classes on the weekend – there is no parking fee. You may park in any Columbia College parking stall.
At no time should you park in the Columbia Child Care parking stalls or any other business stalls as you may be ticketed and/or towed.
