EV Driver Etiquette
Humber supports EV drivers and asks that they follow the following rules:
- Practice safe charging. Properly manage the cord during and after charging. Avoid over-stretching the cord, and do not place it such that it comes in contact with another vehicle.
- Parking for EVs only. Internal combustion and hybrid vehicles are prohibited from parking in EV charging spots. If such a situation occurs, individuals should contact Transportation and Parking Services and non-approved vehicles will be ticketed and/or towed away.
- Don't charge if you don't need a charge. Utilize your home as your primary charging location and use workplace charging (as needed) to augment your home charge.
- Recognize that workplace charging is a privilege. Charging an EV at Humber is available on a first-come-first served basis. Humber does not guarantee that a charging station will be available for drivers' use.
Fees for EV chargers
Humber College opened 16 new EV chargers in 2019 at North Campus. However, the demand for EV chargers on our campuses will likely exceed the availability of charging stations. At Humber, all the EV chargers are Level 2 charging stations - they provide up to an 80 per cent charge after four hours. As a result, Humber will encourage drivers to share charging stations by moving their EVs to a regular, parking spot after four hours of free charging.
Charging stations will be complimentary at North Campus until the end of February 2019 to allow EV drivers to try the charging stations. Starting March 1, 2019, the first 4 hours of charging will be free and drivers will be billed $5.00/ hour (prorated to the minute) for any additional charging at North Campus. All individuals using the EV chargers require a parking pass (permit or day pass).

My parking permit is currently for a Lot that is not the Commuter Hub. How can I use the EV stations in the parking garage at North to charge a vehicle?

We encourage individuals to move their car back to their assigned lot within four hours to avoid the above charge.
