When applicable, towing charges will be billed to the vehicle owner. All tows are subject to GST.

Fines may be paid at the Student and Residence Services Office within four (4) working days.  After this time, financial holds will be placed on the student’s account preventing course registration changes and/or release of transcripts.  Holds will be removed when the fines are paid.
