July 3 – Parking restrictions and road closures due to construction at the Oshawa campus

Please be advised that over the summer there may be significant restrictions to Founders lot 2 due to the start of construction on Ontario Tech University’s new building. During this time, several portables located to the east of the Campus Library will be moved to a temporary new location at the west end of Founders lot 2.

Due to this, the parking entrance and exit directly north of Avenue of Champions (far west entrance to Founders lot 2) is temporarily closed; it will re-open after the move is completed in August.

Details:

Approximately 225 parking spots in the west section of Founders Lot 2 will be fenced off during construction. After the completion of the move, approximately 175 spots will remain unavailable throughout the duration of the new building construction project (until mid-August 2021).

The rest of Founders Lot 2 will remain open during most of the moving process.

Note: Founders Lot 2 permit holders and campus visitors intending to use Founders lot 2 will only be able to park in the centre and east sections of the lot during this period. If you experience any issues with parking in your designated lot, please use the intercom system to contact Parking Services, who will direct you to an alternative location.

In addition, vehicle access along the stretch of Founders Drive just east and north of the current location of the portables may be limited at times during the summer. Expect road closures and potential traffic delays in this area during those times.
