3 College Freshman

Parking: I just got a parking permit for this summer and so far it is okay. However, I should note that it definitely is NOT crowded as it would be on campus as it would be during the fall and spring semester.

2 College Sophomore

Parking: Parking shouldn't be this terrible for students. Parking permits are highly expensive, and the "cheapest" one requires you to take a shuttle.

1 College Freshman

Parking: Having a car on campus would be fantastic, and it's a good thing I have a lot of friends who have cars, because there's a lot of times when campus is really boring and we want to go do something, and walking off campus isn't an option because it's sort of sketchy. However, students and faculty often say that the most efficient branch of UNM bureaucracy is the parking office, because if you leave your car for ten minutes without a permit, or in the wrong area, you will get a ticket. Permits cost around $300 for resident parking, and even with the permit my roommate usually has to park across campus because there's never any parking in our lot.

3 College Student

Parking: I only park at the University when it is necessary. When I do look for parking I try looking for spots that are cheap and a bit close to the class.

2 College Freshman

Parking: Permits are way overpriced and usually pretty far from campus
