2 College Freshman

Parking: Permits for on-campus parking are expensive. There aren't many parking spots that are available or convenient.

2 people found this useful Report
2 College Senior

Parking: The parking is very expensive so students typically get the cheapest one, which seems like everyone parks in the cheaper area and the expensive spaces are open. You can almost bet if you park in a spot without a permit you will be ticketed.

2 College Freshman

Parking: It's bad because parking spots feel up quickly and parking in the parking garage is kind of expensive.

3 College Sophomore

Parking: Parking spots fill up very quickly on this campus, especially between the times of 10 am and 6 pm.

1 College Sophomore

Parking: Between 10am until 6pm the parking is terrible. The spots are very close to the dorms and classes but its very hard to find one. The parking is usually reserved for teachers and facility. The rest of the parking is for the students which is always full. If you drive you have to be there early or you will not get a spot. after 4pm the teacher spots are free to anyone with a pass so parking is perfect! Late classes are the best. Great parking!!

Most students get a very sour taste in their mouths when someone mentions anything about parking, especially at the beginning of the semester, during midterms, or during finals. The students that drive to campus (which includes most of the students that attend IUPUI) usually cannot get a parking spot and be on time to class unless they show up at 7 or 8 a.m. This is the best time to try and find parking, and if students can force themselves to get up this early, then it is a perfect opportunity for them to find some quiet time to study before class. In other words, the early bird catches the worm—and the late bird flies into class like a bat out of hell.

The decisions IUPUI Parking Services makes are very closely scrutinized by the students. There have been articles in the school newspaper, the Sagamore, about the discrepancy between the amount of parking passes sold versus the amount of spots available. There are many more passes sold than there are spots available. Students in the School of Liberal Arts actually printed a bumper sticker once that read “Food Parking, why not both?” A phrase which sounds similar to IUPUI’s slogan, “IU, Purdue, why not both?” If there is one thing most students complain about, it is parking.

Getting a Parking Permit
All undergraduate students can purchase a year-round “E” parking pass for $166 per year. Graduate students can get a “B” permit, which allows them to park closer to the buildings. Every student can purchase parking passes, but a parking spot is never guaranteed.
