What about Parking at the University of Guelph?
We are like most universities, so it is complicated!
Friday at 4:30 pm to Monday at 8:30 am, parking is free. It’s also free on Weekday evenings after 4:30 pm.

If you are staying on campus at one of the residences, your parking is included in your accommodation. You will be asked for your license plate when you check in and can park in lot P13/14/15/19. P19 is the closer lot to Lennox/Addington if you are staying in a traditional dorm room, and 15 is closest to the townhouses.

For those off campus, you can also purchase parking ahead on our registration site — either during registration or any other time.  It is $9/day and these passes are valid in lots P14/15.  It is a 5-7 minute walk to the action. Purchase parking.

You can also purchase parking tickets on campus the day off – use the Parking Services option at the lots with a credit card/online app. If you use this option, parking is different and you can be closer to the centre of campus.  You can park at an exterior parking lot and save money OR you can park closer. For example, P31 – is closer to the action with the app, it is $20.50 for the day or $3.75/hour.

What should I know about paying for food or souvenirs on campus?
The University of Guelph has a cash-less campus, meaning that food or souvenirs from campus will need to be bought using credit or debit cards. This applies to all purchases on campus, including the food trucks that come to campus.

Where will ChemEd 2023 and ChemEd 2025 be hosted? 
ChemEd 2023 will be hosted by the University of Guelph, Ontario Canada. 

ChemEd 2025 will be hosted by The Colorado School of Mines, Golden, CO

Can I volunteer to help? 
Yes please! We will need help with social events. When you sign up for email updates, make sure you indicate you are willing to volunteer.  

How do I register my kids?  Do I register them separately?  
When you register, you will be asked if you are bringing children.  At this point you will select their ages, and if there is a registration fee, it will be added. 

Will I be able to stay on campus on the night of July 22?
Yes, you can pick your dates for on-campus accommodations and early arrivals.

I still have a question, who can I contact?
