3 College Junior

Parking: Much better than most schools but the lots tend to fill up by midnight most nights. The permit costs $75 or students can get a school license plate and park for free. You don't need a car to get around on campus, but it is nice to have one to get around off campus. There is one ticketing patrol car that is pretty harsh and unreasonable.

3 College Freshman

Parking: There are sometimes not enough parking spots if a lot of students are using their car when unnecessary (moreso at the end of the semester when they are just tired of walking) but the school is residential so not many students drive to class. You don't need a car to get around campus because it's quite small but you might want a bike. You definitely may consider getting a car to go anywhere off campus, though, because the bus system of Sarasota is lacking.

3 College Freshman

Parking: Although New college is a small school, freshmans can have cars. THis is unusal at most colleges. The parking lot is very small, maybe 150 spots.Parking is free which is wonderful. Also the campus is very small. I brought a bike with me and never even used it because it takes no more then 12 minutes to get to opposite sides of the campus.

College Junior

Parking: I Don't Have a Car – I don't have a car, but I know there are complaints about the price and availability. However, thinking about larger schools, I'm sure parking is much cheaper and closer to dorms than at other schools. ~$65 for a year long pass. And there are enough spots, it just sometimes requires so walking.

4 College Freshman

Parking: I forget what I payed for my parking permit, but I remember it seemed average. There is a lot of parking on campus, and I think that a car is completely unnecessary unless you plan on driving out of town or something. Pretty much everything in town is within biking distance and I much prefer to bike around than drive.

Parking is plentiful. Students will never face the common campus dilemma of searching for a spot—there's more than enough. Parking on the residential side of campus varies in proximity to certain dorms, but students quickly find what's most convenient for them. 

Having an official "State of Florida NCF" license plate entitles a student to receive a free parking permit, even though parking permits are relatively inexpensive. There are parking lots adjacent to every major area, including dorms, classrooms, and the library. Many off-campus students choose to go the eco-friendly route by riding bikes rather than driving, which contributes to plentiful open parking spaces.
