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.
