3 College Sophomore

Parking: its okay could be better

3 College Freshman

Parking: I don't personally have a car but I've heard that it's not all that easy to get a parking place. Many people end up having to walk a really long way in order to get to their spot.

4 College Sophomore

Parking: I can find a parking spot close by 9 days out of 10.

3 College Junior

Parking: The parking on campus is convenient. There is a large parking garage as well as numerous parking lots located across the campus. You can walk almost anywhere on campus so it is not essential to have a car.

4 College Junior

Parking: I have not had the chance to experience parking situations, but it looks lenient.

BJU may be a small college, but it organizes space well. The school assigns parking spots in the beginning of the semester to prevent chaos on campus. Every car on campus must be registered with the school. The registration fee is a bit expensive for college students, but the parking permit fee is around $20. All fees need to be paid upfront. There are two separate parking lots on campus for the day students and the resident students. Day students have a harder time finding a parking spot, since their spots are not designated. Meanwhile, the resident students’ parking lot is right next to the tennis court, which is far away from every dorm on campus. During the winter, a lot of drivers do not want to walk to the parking lot. Visitors are free to park anywhere on campus, which makes BJU hospitable.

Public Safety tolerates traffic, but gives out tickets. Students may be frustrated at Public Safety for their frequent enforcement. However, in the long run, it reduces the students’ parking stress.
