Parking isn’t considered to be a huge problem on campus for students. When you sign up for a parking permit, you are either assigned to North student parking or South student parking, which Security & Protective Services tries to assign depending on where you live on campus. So, even though you’re unlikely to find a parking spot right outside of your dorm, you won’t have to walk more than a block or two to get to your car.
You do have to be careful that you park in the correct lots and that you are not accidentally in a staff or handicapped spot. Security & Protective Services patrols campus and will give out parking tickets to anyone who is illegally parked. Some of the tickets can cost as much as you pay for a semester parking pass!
