2 College Senior

Parking: The parking permit costs are expensive, especially for students who need financial assistance. There is free space around campus and students can take the campus shuttle, off campus transportation, or ride a bike to save parking permit costs.

2 College Sophomore

Parking: It is pretty difficult to try and purchase a parking permit for the upcoming school year. Parking spaces are extremely limited and pretty expensive. Off campus parking is also very difficult. I would say the average time it takes to get to the campus walking is about 15-20 minutes.

2 College Sophomore

Parking: I think the cost for parking is too expensive and usually there aren't any spots available.

2 College Senior

Parking: I go to a commuter school, so parking has to be readily available. But recently the campus decided to close to all transportation in order to reach tier one, so students who could have parked inside campus are now forced outside, taking a lot of the space for students who purchased a decal outside of campus.

4 College Junior

Parking: My parking lot (S3) is very close to where my classes are.

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.
