Parking: Parking around campus is horrible and parking permit is expensive

1 College Freshman

Parking: Parking around campus is horrible and I travel from Massapequa. I was lucky to get a rebound parking sticker, but it cost me $250. That is outrageous with what I'm paying for tuition along with no scholarship or grant money being a returning mother. It is VERY hard to afford tuition, parking, books, gas and insurance.

There is a lot of frustration from students regarding parking on campus. Not enough spots are provided for those who own a car, and they generally must park several blocks away and then walk to class. In order to get a spot near campus, students say it is ideal to get there between 7 a.m. and 8 a.m. or in the middle of the day. Campus parking lots are also further from campus, which makes it a hassle for students. Students who want to pay for parking are not guaranteed a spot; they are entered into a lottery to determine who gets these spots. One good thing about living on campus is that resident students get first bids on parking spots.

Many students find that owning a car is unnecessary because public transportation is so convenient (although others find public transit a hassle). Buses run between 10 and 20 minutes (depending on the time of day), and trains run more frequently, approximately every few minutes. Parking also gets crazy when it snows because students must worry about digging their car out. This provides another reason for using the public transportation system versus owning a car.
