4 College Junior

Parking: There are a lot of space for parking. Freshmen cannot get a parking space though unless there's a special permission.

5 College Sophomore

Parking: A Lot of Space – Behind the dorms there are parking spots. Generally Platt Blvd has some spots for parallel parking along the inner dorms but those spots are limited.

College Junior

Parking: Parking is fine on campus. You won't be driving to class because the campus is so small, but it's nice to have a car for grocery runs and such. Freshmen can bring cars.

College Student

Parking: There is usually adequate parking on campus for everyone. It is easy to register your car at the beginning of the school year. You only need to use a car to run errands since the campus is so small and everything is within walking distance.

College Student

Parking: Parking can be tight. Since everyone lives on campus, the need for a car is more dependent on your external activities. Most things in Claremont are accessible by foot or bike. However, you sometimes feel the need to go to the mall down the way or need some way to get to that interview down the freeway.

That being said, I would guess 1/3 to 1/2 of the students have cars on campus and most are willing to lend you a ride.

Student Author OverviewWhat's This?

Momentary crowding and occasional long walks to dorm rooms aside, parking at HMC is excellent. Mudders are willing to put up with some inconveniences in exchange for extremely affordable and fairly reliable parking options. Campus Security is a little rough with parking tickets sometimes, but there’s always the Student Appeals Board to go to.

Since Mudd is such an open campus, it sometimes has problems with people breaking into cars during breaks. Security measures are being improved in the lots, and Mudd hasn’t had any recent incidents. Other than that, parking is really affordable, and there’s usually a parking space nearby.
