1 College Freshman

Parking: Parking at Troy is very inconvenient most of the time. I live on campus so I haven't had to experience trying to find a parking spot in the morning yet. The parking lot for my dorm is extremely small. Parking on sorority hill definitely beats any parking problems anywhere. The university needs to pave it immediatly.

3 College Freshman

Parking: parking is free but it can be confusing on which ways to park and where certain students should park to prevent getting a ticket.

1 College Sophomore

Parking: There is very Little parking for commuters, and the color system should, instead be different colors, be 3 different colors. 1. for Faculty, 2. for On-Campus living, and 3. for Off-Campus living.

3 College Senior

Parking: It's ok when i visit campaus online classes for me

2 College Freshman

Much like many other college campus, parking at Troy University is a nightmare! Parking spaces are very scarce, no matter where you look on campus. The best idea for getting a parking space and making it to class on time is to arrive early.

However, Troy has recently been trying to make more accommodations for students and parking, so hopefully it will make a positive impact. Another way to avoid the daily dilemma of parking is to carpool with other students or to use the bus service that Troy offers to students.
