2 College Junior

Parking: The campus isn't that large, so it's no problem to walk from one side to the other once (twice is pushing it). Unless you get there early, it can be difficult to find parking. There are small parking lots all around the school, it is just a matter of finding a parking spot near where you need to be, instead of finding one across campus and hiking to class.

3 College Freshman

Parking: I don't have a car, but from what I've seen there needs to be more parking.

3 College Freshman

Parking: Parking cost is ok, but there's never any available spots. There really needs to be more parking available.

2 College Junior

Parking: Sometimes its hard to find a spot, parking lots are not spacious and seem like a maze to get through. Learn to parallel park.

2 College Freshman

Parking: Lack of parking, and spots are usually pretty far away.

Parking is a sore subject at Florida Southern. Obtaining a parking permit is relatively simple, and the cost is reasonable. However, the ability to find a parking spot on campus is extremely difficult during school hours. Students will have to resort to parking in a distant lot because empty parking spaces are so hard to come by. In addition, parking lots have been eliminated due to new buildings. Therefore, there is a shortage of spaces, and the problem is only getting worse.

Tickets are given frequently, especially for failure to register a vehicle parked in school parking lots. This is the school's way of making sure everyone is paying for a parking permit if he or she wants to park a car on campus. Guests are commonly given tickets for failing to register a vehicle, as well, but a quick visit to the safety office will clear any fines procured.
