The New King’s College Circle Garage: Open and Available For Use

Spaces & Experiences at the University of Toronto is delighted to announce that the new King’s College Circle garage is open and available for use as of Friday, March 1, 2024. Access in and out of the garage is from the Wellesley Street underpass only. There is no access from King’s College Road, Galbraith Road, or Kings College Circle.

“The parking garage is one important element of the Landmark Project, which is one of the most significant open-space projects at the University of Toronto of the past 100 years. It’s a project that has transformed the St. George campus core into a greener, more sustainable, accessible, and pedestrian friendly space and our new underground parking lot is an integral part of that transformation,” says Anne Macdonald, Assistant Vice President, Spaces & Experiences at the University of Toronto’s St. George Campus.

The garage has 237 spaces of which 7 are accessible spaces and was developed with sustainability in mind.

Underneath the site, extensive drilling was undertaken to create “374 geothermal boreholes, each 240 metres underneath the parking lot. These shafts store surplus heat generated by mechanical systems in the summer for use in the winter, and will help reduce greenhouse gases by approximately 15,000 metric tons every year.

Payment for parking can be made at any of the 3 Pay-by-Plate machines located on the east wall and 3 Pay-by-Plate machines on the west wall of the garage and mobile pay is also available. The new garage provides new and convenient parking on campus and allows for easy, pedestrian access to all U of T building located on King’s College Circle.
