Parking for St. Louis students at our various locations is extremely limited or non-existent.

See below for student parking availability:

Kitchener Main Campus – no student parking during the day. Student parking available after 5pm on a first come / first serve basis.

St. Benedict Campus – student parking is limited to behind and beside St. Louis building and shared with St. Benedict students

Emmanuel Campus – no student parking in the church parking lot, however 2 hour street parking in uptown Waterloo available


Nearby Parking –  Because there is limited to no student parking at most of our campuses, and other transportation is not an option, you may have to explore nearby parking. Parking is free on city streets during the day, however not usually for more than 2 hours at a time.  Please obey parking signs and check city by-laws for details on nearby parking options and rates.

Drop-off / Pick-up at the school — please obey traffic and directional signage when picking up or dropping off a student at any of our St. Louis campuses

Public Transportation — despite construction throughout the Region, we are very excited about improved public transportation. The LRT cannot come soon enough.  In the meantime, we still have bus stops and terminals conveniently located near all of our campuses and satellite locations.  Visit to determine a route and schedule that will get you to class on time.

Car-Sharing —  Community Car Share is a viable transportation option as are a number of shared parking, ride-share, taxi and car services.  You could also find out if there is a student in your class or program that you could share the costs of parking.

Cycling, Walking — in the nicer weather, we often see students choosing to walk  or ride their bike to our campuses.  If you choose to cycle, please lock your bike up where stanchions are provided.
