3 College Freshman

Parking: If you wanna get a good spot, be there early

3 College Freshman

Parking: Spots fill up fast and the permits aren't too costly. Sometimes they fill up so fast that the only parking spots are in the very back and that is pretty far away from campus. If you are in a spot that you shouldnt be, expect to have a boot or ticket in about an hour or less. Campus is fairly close to all apartments, but there are some who are about a 10-20 min walk away. A car would be nice to have to get around, I would say necessity of a vehicle is 5/10.

3 College Sophomore

Parking: Depending on where you park, there are usually enough spots that are pretty close

2 College Senior

Parking: Parking can be crazy. Off campus parking parking is covered by the city so there aren't a lot of spaces.

3 College Student

Parking: I haven't experienced it myself, but i've heard it was alright.

Parking is a sore topic for many students. There are not as many parking lots or even parking spaces for the number of students owning cars. The parking lots that are available are primarily on only one side of campus, so if students do drive, they’ll still end up walking across campus to get to class.

That being said, BYU-Idaho is a small campus. Students can cross from one side to the other in about 15 minutes on average by walking. Most housing complexes are only one to two streets away from the campus, if not just across the street. Even community housing for married students and students with a family is within a reasonable walking distance. There are still students who do have to travel a couple of miles to get to campus, either because they live in a nearby city or at a local residence outside the main parts of town—these students are who the parking is intended for. For most students, walking is less of a hassle, and they don’t mind having to walk when they know they’ll eventually end up walking across campus anyway.

Did You Know?
University Relations has recently promoted walking on campus and increased public knowledge of the new parking regulations. At the beginning of the fall 2009 semester, the parking policies were adjusted to include city and campus parking, designated by U and B parking. For many students, this has created unnecessary confusion, but overall, the University believes it has created more order for students who have to drive to school and encouraged more students that can walk to walk.
