Parking, at times, causes a lot of stress and frustration, especially when students are searching for a spot close to a residence hall or a class that they are late for. The lots are not necessarily right next to any buildings because they are placed on the edges of campus. The University is attempting to make Valpo primarily a walking campus, and that is ultimately the best way to get around. No matter where you park, you are going to have to walk to get anywhere, so unless you are a commuter, a car is not beneficial for getting around campus.
VUPD is in charge of issuing parking passes and ticketing, but officers have admitted that VUPD does not limit the number of passes based on the number of parking spaces available to students.Thus, during the busiest times of the day, it will take a while to find an open parking spot, especially one near the desired destination.
