2 College Senior

Parking: Parking is always costly. If you are a commuter parking in the overflow lot, you better get to school pretty early because there are never enough spots.

3 College Freshman

Parking: I don't have a car on campus, so parking doesn't really affect me. I have heard that parking is not very good, especially off campus.

5 College Junior

Parking: Carroll reserves the right to revoke the parking permit and/or refuse to issue any future parking permits to individuals who exhibit a history of repeated offenses, endanger others or damage university property by the careless use of a motor vehicle. Carroll also reserves the right to refuse the issuance of a parking permit to any individual.

2 College Junior

Parking: Parking is also a joke-too expensive for what you get

5 College Freshman

Parking: On campus parking is very convenient, I am unsure about on campus parking cost. Off campus parking is fairly far from dorms but very reasonably priced.

Parking at Carroll University is a big problem. The amount of parking spots does not match up with the number of students. There is no guarantee of finding a spot, which makes parking extremely difficult for commuters. Often, they are left to park on the streets, most of which have a two-hour limit. When classes exceed two hours, students get tickets. Most students park in the overflow section, but this lot is the worst of the worst. There is a plethora of potholes, capable of swallowing cars. Well, maybe not to that extreme, but it is in poor condition. To buy a parking pass means crying a little, as the amount in a student's bank account plummets. If a student wants to park by his or her dorm, it is $176. For a college student, that is a lot of money. Public Safety is really picky on this issue and hands out tickets left and right. If a student doesn't have a permit, he or she should expect a fine. If these fines are not paid, a student cannot register for classes, get his or her transcripts, or even get a diploma. Parking is a constant struggle between students and the administration.

Good Luck Getting a Spot Here
Campus Center
Getting a Parking Permit
To park on campus, a student must fill out a parking application found on the Public Safety website at the beginning of the year. A student picks his/her top three parking spots, and then after a raffle, students are told where they can park. After paying the Business Office, students are given stickers and assigned to their lots.
