Parking: They keep taking away parking spots the president wants the school to become a "pedestrian campus" not allowing students to have cars - this is way in the future as of now spots are difficult to find

Parking: Free parking passes are great. It is pretty hard to find a spot though.

Parking at High Point can have its ups and downs. The “up” is that parking is free! Also, you can have multiple vehicles on campus (although there's really no need to). The “down” is that as the school and student body expand, the parking doesn’t. Sometimes it’s hard to get a spot that’s convenient to where you are headed, and students tend to get frustrated when they are forced to park far away.

Having a car on campus isn’t a necessity. There are plenty of shuttles around campus and to the off-campus locations like The Village, U-Ville, and Terrace. When going into town on errands, it is 100 percent more convenient to have a car because catching the shopping shuttle isn’t always an option, depending on your schedule. If you decide not to bring your car to campus, then just make friends with someone who has one, and you’re all set!
