2 College Junior

Parking: F*** AU parking services and the whole farce that is parking on campus.

2 College Sophomore

Parking: Parking is competitive. If you get an RH pass (maybe 25% of students do?), you can park very close to your dorm. These run about $300 I believe. Otherwise, you can hope for an RO pass, which is about a 5 min walk if you live in the Village, or a 30 min walk if you live in the Hill. These are about $200? There are also a couple other passes for farther off campus.

A shuttle can take you from your dorm to RO, but you have to wait for it.

Auburn is VERY strict about enforcing parking rules and is not at all hesitant to hand out tickets. You also have to move your car on game-day, so that's inconvenient and an easy way to get a ticket. Watch out.

2 College Sophomore

Parking: It's hard to get a permit, and even harder to find a spot. Students who live on campus get better parking - the further from campus your dorm is, the better the parking. Parking services are the worst though. They give out so many tickets.

3 College Student

Parking: There is a lot of walking done on campus, but when you come on your tour you find that out. Parking tickets are expensive so always park in your zone.

1 College Junior

Parking: There is not nearly enough parking on or near campus!! It is what I am most frustrated about my college.

One of the worst aspects of going to college at Auburn is the parking situation. There has been an uphill battle going on between the students and administration for years about the lack of parking on campus. The administration has been working to improve the Transit system to make it faster and more convenient for students to ride. If you live on campus, then you can always walk or bike to class.

In years to come, Auburn will eventually be turned into a walking campus. As for right now, if you choose to drive to class, then just make sure you leave in plenty of time. Professors rarely excuse tardiness just because you couldn’t find a parking space.
