4 College Junior

Parking: The permit cost is around $100 for the year. However, you can get to most things on campus or in Decatur on foot, with less than a mile's walk. There are convenient spots all over campus to park.

5 College Freshman

Parking: The campus is so small that all parking is close. There is a huge lot that is never full.

3 College Freshman

Parking: Although I do not drive, I am very aware of the rules and regulations of student and visitor parking. Students have to make sure they plan ahead for parking, because their will not be any left. Our public safety department definitely pays attention to cars and where they should be parked.

2 College Junior

Parking: Parking is okay, but it's too expensive.

4 College Sophomore

Parking: The parking at this college costs $100 a year, which is not bad compared to many state colleges. There isn't much parking available because not many people use cars here. There is not much need for cars here. Although, there are not many stores nearby, we do have the subway which many times takes you places faster and cheaper than a car.

Parking on campus is plentiful, even though it's not always particularly close to your on-campus destination. Granted, Agnes is a small school, so there's really no problem in parking a building away from where you're supposed to be. Plus, more than half the people who attend Agnes live on campus, so parking isn't always such an issue. If you live on campus and have a car, you have two options for parking permits. You can pay per semester, which is approximately $60 per semester, or you can pay per year, which is $100. Most people with cars pay the $100 per year because this parking allows you to park on campus during holidays as well as in the summer, so it's better bang for your buck!

Public Safety enforces parking. It is almost guaranteed you will receive a parking ticket if you are an Agnes student and you park in a visitor or reserved space. It's best if you read through the parking brochure in order to see the places where you are allowed to park. There isn't a lot of parking in Decatur, and most of the parking that is available is metered. So, if you would like to go off campus into Decatur, it would be best if you were to keep your car on campus and walk. Some students park their cars in a church lot on Church Street; however, there have been incidents where people from the church have had Decatur police write tickets for cars parked for a prolonged period of time.

Getting a Parking Permit
In order to obtain a parking permit, a Scottie must go to the Public Safety office next to West Parking and fill out a short form detailing his or her license plater number; make, model, and color of the car; insurance info; and some personal information. Once students turn in the form with $100 (that's for a full year of parking), they'll receive their pass, and they're good to park in any of the approved lots.
