There is actually a lot of parking on campus. Metered spots are located within close proximity to all buildings, as well as all-day paid parking in many convenient places. There is also free parking, but it is a bit of a walk sometimes, especially in the cold. One can park at the N Lot by the LIRR train station for commuters to and from New York City, or in the S Lot, at the far end of campus. Busing is provided for both lots, and to all residence halls, to transport students to where they need to go.
During the day, the busing is convenient and punctual. However, later in the day, buses become sparser and less timely. Just over half of the student population is commuter, so parking can fill up quickly. In the middle of the day, one can waste almost half an hour finding a metered spot. After 7 p.m., parking is free.
