3 College Sophomore

Parking: It's the closest parking area relatively speaking, since they are trying to make UTEP a "walking campus" meaning no parking spaces inside the campus whats so ever, but the pricing is ridiculously high, and I heard the price will be even higher next semester and that is just ridiculous to me. Everyone is always driving way too fast in there I'm surprised there hasn't been any crashes or people ran over yet.

3 College Freshman

Parking: The prices aren't bad. The remote parking says it all in the name though, since the shuttle system forces students to use it.

1 College Freshman

Parking: Because of construction, you can't get anywhere

3 College Junior

Parking: During the morning to find a parking is very hard. After 2:00 PM is probably to find a parking, but it takes time searching for one .

3 College Freshman

Parking: I park in a really far parking garage and I walk about 7 minutes to get on campus and like 15 to get to class.

Parking has been a problem in the past couple of years, but UTEP recently built two parking garages that have calmed the rage of students angered by the scarce number of spots.

Plenty of parking is now available to students. Parking areas are dispersed around campus to accommodate students, depending on which section of campus students have their classes. Campus police keep a close eye on students who fail to provide a permit for a parking section. A $30 fee is charged to students who park in a parking lot with the wrong permit. Permits are sold according to the different zones of parking requested by students.
