Parking on campus rocks! It's free, there's always a place to park, and since the campus is relatively small, students are only about a five-minute walk from class regardless of where they park. Students who have overnight guests can get a temporary parking pass from the Austin Hall desk worker. This is free and easy to do, as well.
Unlike a lot of colleges, there are only a few parking lots on Alverno's campus, and one is strictly for faculty and staff use. However, this isn't a big deal because plenty of other parking is available, as well as additional street parking. If a student parks in the wrong spot, she'll get ticketed by Safety and Security. The cost of these tickets depends on how many other tickets you've gotten in the past. Tickets can be appealed, but saying that you needed to park in a handicapped spot because you were late to class does not count as an appropriate excuse.
