2 College Student

Parking: Its extremely hard to find any kind of parking in the middle of the day.

2 College Freshman

Parking: I don't park on campus but from what I hear it can get pretty crazy. It is difficult to find a spot so you should get to school early just to find a parking spot.

1 College Freshman

Parking: The parking on campus is always difficult to find. I think the parking should be expanded.

2 College Student

Parking: not always available where you may need it

3 College Freshman

Parking: It's not that bad. It's convenient for commuters but cans be a hassle at times.

Parking is a bit scarce here at UIW. When you walk into class, there is always someone complaining about how terrible the parking is because of how it took them five minutes to find a parking spot, and when they did, it was really far from their classes. For commuters, this is often something that is dealt with on a daily basis. Commuters are encouraged to arrive early in order to find a decent parking space and avoid running late for class if they have to park far from the main campus. For residents who own a car, however, the parking situation is not much of a concern.

Parking tickets are common, especially if you happen to be double parked. Luckily, you can always try to appeal your ticket through one of two ways. For current UIW students, appeals are submitted via Cardinal Cars, For former students or non-UIW affiliated guests, appeals are submitted via email. All appeals must be submitted in writing.
