It is mandatory for all motor vehicles parked on the Saint Paul College campus to use the controlled parking access system.
Visitors may park anywhere in the lots and ramp except for marked reserved spaces. Vehicles parked in handicapped parking spaces require a valid State-Issued Handicapped Permit. All violators will be ticketed.
Access to the parking lots is made via controlled entry.
All parking at Saint Paul College is paid parking:
- Hourly Parking for visitors;
- SPC Card Parking for students taking classes in the current term;
- SPC Card Parking for employees who are signed up for a payroll deduction.
Possession of an SPC Card neither reserves nor guarantees a parking space.
Hourly parking rates are as follows:

Entering: Use the Marshall Avenue entrances or the Kellogg Boulevard Entrance
Visitors and employees who do not choose to have parking access through the SPC Card must enter the lot via the Marshall Avenue entrances or the Kellogg Boulevard entrance to obtain a short-term parking access ticket from the machine.
Exiting: Use the Marshall Avenue or the Concordia Avenue exit lanes
The short-term parking access ticket must be paid at the paystation in the lane when exiting the lot or the paystation in the Parking Ramp 3rd Floor Lobby. The Marshall Avenue and Concordia Avenue exit lanes accept the following for exiting: SPC Card, credit/debit card, pre-paid exit vouchers from paystations, and validated tickets. There is no cash accepted at any exit lanes. All cash payments must be made in the 3rd floor Parking Ramp lobby using the paystation.
