To obtain parking for main campus you will need to visit McMaster Parking & Security Services located in the ET Clarke Centre in the red brick building adjacent to the smoke stack. There are several parking lot options available, however many Faculty of Health Sciences employees choose to park at Ward Avenue, with shuttle service provided to the front doors of MUMC.
FHS employees located on main campus may apply for hospital parking underground, however transponders are assigned as space becomes available. To be placed on a waitlist you will need to complete a transponder request form and return it to Corporate Services.
