3 College Freshman

Parking: It's $80 to get a permit which seems a little ridiculous. Tickets are easy to appeal and usually just turn into warnings.

3 College Sophomore

Parking: Permit costs are a bit expensive. The ticket fines are do-able. It is nice to have a car on campus because there is more to do off-campus. Parking spaces full up fast so it is always a treat when you find a spot close to your dorm.

3 College Freshman

Parking: The cost is average, but the parking can fill up quick sometimes. Redding is pretty spread out, so you might want to bring a car. Fines and ticketing is average. There is enough parking spots, but if you don't get a good one, the next available is a bit of a walk.

3 College Freshman

Parking: Simpson University is a very small school that lies basically in the middle of nowhere, for a few miles at least. All of the parking spots available are technically on campus. There is a commuter parking lot, which I believe a permit is needed for, and a residents' parking lot, which a permit is definitely required for. Some students park outside of a fenced border near the commuter parking lot and entrance. A permit is not necessary for parking there, but it is less convenient and also less safe. I don't have a car here, so I am not sure of the exact amount charged for a permit. Finding a parking space for others usually doesn't seem to be a problem. People sometimes complain about getting a parking spot that is "too far away", even though compared to bigger schools, the distance from that spot to the resident's place is considered a relief (but I guess we always need something to complain about).

4 College Junior

Parking: There's usually a spot available for everyone with a car.
