Visitor Information


Parking is available to all visitors free of charge as follows:

On Thursday and Friday, park in Lots X and TT on the map. These are about a five minute walk from the PAC. The university is still operating normally while the event is ongoing so the other lots, closer to the PAC, are used for staff and students at this time.

  • Visitors may also pay to park in Lot M on Thursday and Friday ($6/day). Please note that this lot can fill up quickly and no trailers are permitted here.

On Saturday, park in any of the lots M, R, L, or N. Lot M and R are the closest to the PAC.

On all days, disregard signs asking you to pay for parking if it is listed as free on this map for that day. Special arrangements are made to have these lots free for visitors of FRC.

Places to Eat

On-campus eateries are open through lunchtime for the FIRST Robotics Competition. They are close to the Physical Activities Complex (PAC) and allow for you to get lunch quickly without missing any of the action.

Student Life Centre

The Student Life Centre (SLC) is right beside the PAC and has several food outlets contained within the Brubaker's cafeteria, Teriyaki Express, Pizza Pizza, and others. In addition, the SLC has a Tim Horton's and an International News outlet. International News is also open 24-hours — useful to grab a snack when other outlets are closed.
