4 College Sophomore

Parking: I don't have a car, but from what I've seen, parking isn't a big issue. If you have a car, then there will be a place to put it.

3 College Junior

Parking: There are not many places to park unfortunately. Cars are really not necessary on the campus. Security is definitely on top of their game in ticketing. Once you get a ticket, you never try to park in an invalid spot again, it's a totally preventable hassle.

2 College Sophomore

Parking: The parking is expensive and the cost is double if you want a pass for both ends of campus. You can usually find a spot by your dorm/house but a good spot is hard to find and will most likely be taken as soon as you leave. It is almost impossible to get a spot in Lowry circle but you can generally find one across the street.

4 College Junior

Parking: Parking can get packed, but the spots are very close to academic and residential halls.

4 College Senior

Parking: Everything is very close to everything. Permits cost $100 and only allow you to park in certain areas of campus over night

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!
