5 College Freshman

Parking: a lot of spaces for parking. it is one of the best things.

2 College Junior

Parking: Parking on campus is only available next to hill house, the dorm that is furthest from main campus. If you live on main campus and have a car, you're not able to park your car anywhere closer than hill house, which is a 10-15 minute walk away or a 5 minute shuttle ride away; although shuttles are available in odd increments as they run on a loop, making it depend on students' ride needs exactly.

3 College Freshman

Parking: There's usually enough parking, but lots can be far away from where you are actually going, especially if it is snowing.

2 College Senior

Parking: There is 1 parking lot for everyone but staff who have their own. It's $200 for a year which is decent. Enforcement is hit or miss.

3 College Sophomore

Parking: There are several parking lots on campus, including Kober, Andrews, and Marshall Field. Campus is pretty small, but the parking lots are easy to get to from anywhere. Andrews parking lot is the main one, located in the center of campus. This is where the school vans are parked. I personally don't have a care so I can testify to permit costs or fines. You don't need a car on campus and most people don't. It is New York after all so there isn't a need to have a car. Public transportation works very well.

Some say the answer to all of SLC’s parking problems arrived with the construction of Kober parking lot, a two-story cement structure located on the far corner of campus. In addition to providing dozens of spaces for student cars, Kober is weather-protected and monitored with security cameras. Hence, if you’re willing to pay, keeping a car on campus is easy. Students who keep cars do complain that the walk from main campus to Kober can be strenuous (especially if you’re lugging an armload of books). Additionally, because Kober is isolated from main campus, it has been occasionally preyed upon by thieves, and it’s a good idea to park under a lamp near the entrance and to not leave your valuables in plain sight.

Parking anywhere else on campus will give you a headache, especially when you’re moving in and out of your dorm and need to park as close to your building as possible. Your best bet is to make the move early in the morning or late at night. Overall, cars aren’t necessary, and not many students have them on campus. Anything you might need to buy is within walking distance, and if by some chance it isn’t, then the train to NYC is just around the corner.

Getting a Parking Permit
