Parking is one of the needs at the University that is in excess. There should be no reason students, faculty, staff, and visitors cannot find a parking spot. The only problem people have with parking is finding a convenient spot that is close to the location they are trying to go to. For students, it is hard to find a parking spot close to the door of the dorm they live in.
At the beginning of each academic year, resident students have to register their vehicle with the Student Life Office. Students can get a parking permit when they register for classes in the fall. Parking decals are $5 each. Enforcement of parking is slightly lax. They enforce certain violations, like parking in a no-parking area and not having a parking decal. In the past, there have been break-ins and car vandalism, but these incidents are the most trouble caused within the parking lots on campus. The lots are properly maintained by maintenance and are relatively clean, as well.
