Ask anyone who attends Mizzou, and he or she will tell you how horrible parking on campus can be. Most commuter students park in AV14 (Trowbridge Livestock Area) or Hearnes Center. The commuter parking pass is about $120. If they're fortunate, students can get a pass to park in parking garages, but they have to be very lucky and will end up paying about $40 to $50 more. There are meters on campus. One thing that students should be aware of is tickets, though. Make sure that you have the correct tags and that there is enough money in the meters.
The only times that students face extreme difficulty with off-campus parking are during parties or home games. Parking becomes very scarce during home games, especially around campus and downtown. During parties, it becomes very difficult to find parking around the neighborhoods because if there are only a few parties that weekend, everyone will be attending them. This causes CPD (Columbia Police Department) to show up a lot sooner, as well.
