Students are generally disappointed with the lack of parking on or near campus. Resident students have one garage from which to choose: the San Martin Garage. Parking permits are pretty expensive, too, at $400 per semester. Anyone who chooses to bring a car will need to plan to spend time feeding meters, moving their cars from no parking zones, and finding a spot. 

It is not necessary to have a car to get around campus, so once students find parking spots, they keep them until they need to drive somewhere else in the city. If you’re flexible about where you park, you’ll find parking, even if it isn’t near where you want to go. The best option for parking would be to get an "Area 12" parking permit. This works well for juniors and seniors because they typically live off campus and in apartment buildings or rowhouses. Not getting the pass puts you at risk for several parking tickets.
