Parking couldn't be a lot worse than it is. It's very difficult to get a spot, and if you do want one, it often requires paying ridiculous prices. By the end of the year, commuter students fork up wads of money on parking. Carpooling is probably the best way to cut down on parking costs, but even then, they can be significant. Don't try to park illegally, whether that means without a permit or in a no-parking zone. It's just not worth taking the chance-campus parking enforcement is ruthlessly unforgiving.
Most students agree that the best way to deal with parking is to avoid it. Commuter students bus or carpool to school, students with a car try to park it off campus, and drivers quickly learn not to park without a permit when one is required. If you plan to bring a car with you and you don't want to spend a lot of money, be prepared for a hike to and from the vehicle. If, however, you don't mind the hefty price, then you really don't have a problem.
