2 College Freshman

Parking: Pretty much the only spaces near the school are reserved for faculty, and anywhere within easy walking distance is usually restricted to 2-hour parking, which means in a 3-hour studio class you will have to leave in the middle of the class to refresh your parking meter. There are spots a bit further away, but if you're hauling a piece of artwork with you (and this will happen) you're going to be dragging it a few blocks.

Unless you're a commuter who can't make it by bus, a car is definitely not necessary, the whole school is in one building.

1 College Sophomore

Parking: The permit cost is obnoxious, although most students don't have to deal with it because very few have cars to worry about. The distance from the school is fine and you can usually find a spot, but the cost isn't usually worth it

1 College Senior

Parking: Though there is a small lot a block and a half away, the spots are small and tight and cost $200 per semester to weasel your way into a spot each day. The living expense in the area is pricey so cars are a common way to commute from a place with reasonable living expenses and therefore it is needed to buy this pass. The parking officers are handy with their tickets in the 2 hour parking that surrounds the school.

3 College Junior

Parking: There is one parking lot available for students at a fee of $200 a semester. There is meter parking directly in front of and down the street from campus. Free parking on the street is hard to come by behind the school and across the river.

1 College Sophomore

Parking: There is basically no parking at MIAD. Not even for the teachers. There is a small parking lot for guests, but when I say small I mean very small. It's even sometimes inaccessible for no reason. The school will put signs in front that say you can't park. A friend of mine brought her car up to Milwaukee for obvious purposes and ended up having to buy 2 parking passes. 1 for day/street parking, and one for night parking. Each about $60. Before she even got those however, she received around 3-4 tickets ranging from $10-$60. So if you have a car and not a lot of money, it's best to leave your car at home and just take buses everywhere.
