Parking: its pretty easy to find parking

Parking: A car would definitely be helpful on campus - walmart is pretty far away, however buses take people to walmart on the weekends. Parking spaces are hard to find

Parking: As far permits are concerned, it is very easy to get one to park. I've never gotten a ticket, but I've heard from others that more often than not, you'll get a warning before you ever get a ticket. And if you do happen to get fined, I don't think the prices are over $30 (of course, that depends on where you park). If you live in the dorms, you don't really need a car, it takes about 10-15 to walk to classes, and it's actually really good exercise. Even if you live in an apartment off campus, they often have shuttle systems through the complexes that can take you to campus. On the weekends, the school shuttle system will take you to the mall or the grocery store so you can get around and get what you need. Parking in the dorms and apartments are very easy- I can always find a convenient place to park. On campus is a different story. I usually take the bus since I live off campus, but usually there is never a place to park when I go to class. I have a lot of classmates that are sometimes late because they couldn't park or couldn't find a space. The only time you can find a decent space is if you have an evening class.The car traffic leaving campus is sometimes heavy. A lot of cars are backed up after classes waiting to find a spot or waiting for the buses to move. That combined with regular city traffic and the large amounts of pedestrians make it a little stressful at times. I never bother with parking on campus.

Parking: Parking is terrible here. Its the one thing I hate about it and they need to build a parking deck. But parking for class is almost non-existent. Near the dorms its difficult to find a spot during the day and at night don't even worry about it, you wont find one.

3 College Freshman

Parking: The price of parking permits are very low, but the ability to find spots is very difficult. Tickets are not expensive, but it is very easy to get a ticket. Although it is not necessary to have a car it makes it easier to get around.

Parking could be the biggest complaint at Georgia College. Despite there being more than 3,600 spaces available to students, faculty, and staff, there is still definitely not enough of space. There are two-hour parking spaces around campus, but you are almost guaranteed a ticket if you do not move your car after those two hours. Usually, regulations are more strictly enforced from 7:30 a.m. to 5 p.m.

The student lots around campus are generally full early in the morning, so if you want a spot, you have to get there early. Honestly, your best bet is to walk or ride a bike to campus if at all possible!
