Price of campus parking passes to increase

St. Thomas University students will be shelling out more money for parking passes this fall – and they’ll have to buy the more expensive passes from the University of New Brunswick.

STU’s director of facilities, Bill MacLean, confirmed the prices for parking passes will go up and said there will be 100 more spaces for students to park on campus.

Exclusive lots for STU and UNB students will be replaced by student and faculty only lots, meaning STU students will be able to park anywhere on either campus.

“Not all the details are ironed out yet,” MacLean said. “But it’ll be great because you’ll be able to park wherever.”

The new Fredericton campus of the New Brunswick Community College opened last month and the college is expecting 290 students when classes start in September.

But the students at NBCC will be starting their day earlier, so MacLean doesn’t anticipate any extra battles for parking spots.

“Traffic shouldn’t change too much,” he said.

The  exact price of the new parking passes could not be confirmed.
