Parking: City College of New York offers no parking for its campus. Since it's located in the city, you can use meter parking or park near the school if you find an open spot. But since you're in the city, finding parking is quite difficult.

Students can purchase a permit that provides space in a parking garage at the school, however these can cost over 100 dollars per month. The alternative is to park in the street, which is a risky proposition because cars may be damaged or ticketed, especially if the money in the meter runs out. Thus, public transportation is usually more favorable than driving. If you do drive, trying to find parking can be a hassle. It can take up to thirty minutes to find a parking spot near the school.
