4 College Sophomore

Parking: Parking is great. It is close by the buildings which is good because it gets cold.

5 College Sophomore

Parking: Most people complain about terrible freshman parking, but Thomas has a lot of available space. There is always somewhere to park, whether you're looking in the residence parking lot or the commuter lot.

4 College Freshman

Parking: Parking at Thomas College is typical, there are plenty of places to park your vehicle; however, sometimes you have to walk further than prefered.

3 College Sophomore

Parking: Although space is limited, the number of students who have cars is small, and there's generally plenty of room. And because Thomas is located in the town, there are quite a few places within walking distance, when weather permits.

4 College Freshman

Parking: There are always spaces available.

Parking on campus is very easy because there is always enough room for all the students, faculty and staff. If one parking lot fills up, then there are other lots available. And, parking decals only cost $5 per year. To get a decal, just go to Public Safety and fill out a form with your personal and your vehicle's information, including the license plate number, make, model, and color. Public Safety needs to know this information in case you leave your lights on or if theft becomes an issue. They also need to keep track of all vehicles in case of an issue with a visitor or unwanted guest. Public Safety is always walking around checking parking lots for suspicious activity.

If you are using a different vehicle for an extended period of time or if you get a new vehicle, then Public Safety needs to be notified as soon as possible so they can have that new information on file. Overall, parking Thomas is easy and relatively pain-free.
