3 College Sophomore

Parking: I don't have a car on campus, but my best friend commuted last semester and it wasn't a struggle.

1 College Sophomore

Parking: We dont have offcampus parking, its all done on the univsersity. Having your car on campus is crazy expensive and really not worth unless you have student teaching, off campus job, or internship.

2 College Sophomore

Parking: To pay $500 for parking for the whole year is ridiculous. I'm paying $48,000 to be here... I should get to park for free! Not to mention if you get there too late, you won't find a spot. Period. And public safety are jerks! They will give you a ticket and bleed whatever little money you have out of you. Its disgusting how much money this college wants!

2 College Sophomore

Parking: Many times you have to go to "rape lot" and park which is behind the baseball field and is nowhere near any of the dorms and is pretty dark at night. I don't feel unsafe but its just a hassle to walk about a half a mile to get to and from your car in the cold winter

Student Author OverviewWhat's This?

Parking at the University of Hartford is often a task, but if done right, it can be an easy task. There are 13 lots on campus, lettered from A to N (no I). All of these, with the exception of Lot K, which is a faculty/staff/visitor lot, are open to students. There are also several parking spaces in front of the main dining center, The Commons, which are available for anyone to park in between 7 a.m. and midnight. Public Safety is lenient about parking in those spaces, unless your car is there after 12 a.m. Cars are subject to being towed, but you will oftentimes get a warning or ticket before your car is actually towed.

As long as you can find a spot, parking is relatively fine, but it’s sometimes difficult to locate an empty space because of the large number of cars present on campus. However, the majority of students still manage to find parking in at least one of the many lots here. If you want to bring a car to campus, remember to get your permit—it is required and allows you to park on campus.
