2 College Freshman

Parking: I don't drive, but depending on what others have told me, the worst times are at the beginning of each semester.

2 College Freshman

Parking: I have a "B" parking pass and it is the worst to try to find a parking space. This next year I am going to switch to a reserved parking to see if it is any better.

3 College Junior

Parking: Parking is okay. Tickets are ridiculously high for minor offenses.

2 College Junior

Parking: There's very little parking and I think to help the situation would be to not allow the on campus living students to park in the parking lots.

2 College Junior

Parking: Parking is expensive and had to find a parking spot even if you pay for parking. They make the professors pay for parking in which I think is outrageous.

Parking is the most complained about thing on campus. The school's parking was built for a much smaller student population, and it has not grown alongside the rising population. The lots were built for a student population of 4,000–5,000 but did not expand when the population rose to 7,000. The only guaranteed parking spots are located as far away from classroom buildings as possible without being off campus. There are currently no plans for expanding the parking lots or rectifying the problem. Students, however, have voiced desire for a parking garage, but it remains to be seen whether or not one will be built.

Where students can park is determined by the permit they hold. C permits are for residential students in the dorms only. B permits are for commuter students who live off campus, and these lots fill up quickly until classes are over. There are also special D permits for students who wish to pay extra money for preferred parking. Students who park in an incorrect lot will be ticketed.

Facts & Statistics

Student Parking Lot?
Yes
Student lots are designated B and C. Students living on campus park in the C lots, which are located near the dorms. Non-residents park in the commuter lots, designated B. For extra cost, or special needs, there are the D lots. A is reserved for faculty and staff.
Freshmen Allowed to Park?
Yes
Because freshmen typically live on campus, they have the C permit for residential parking.
Approximate Parking Permit Cost
  • Commuter (B) and residential (C) permits are $50 per semester or $90 per year.
  • Reserved D permits are $150 flat fee per vehicle.
Common Parking Tickets

Best Places to Find a Spot

Good Luck Getting a Spot Here
The best parking spot to find is near the library, but it is hard to get.
Getting a Parking Permit
You can register your vehicle in person or online. You will need your campus ID number and license plate and vehicle information. Permits can be picked up at the Parking Services Office in the West Annex.
