2 College Sophomore

Parking: The cost of parking isn't terrible however they don't make many lots available for all people which is unreasonable considering there are lots for the apartments that dorm residents can't use. Having a parking garage full of cars and people having to park ways away in order to find a spot when there's lots with multiple empty spots is outrageous.

Parking: Living on campus has been very lucky, because parking on a daily basis is a nightmare. When I live off campus but still work at school during the summer, the only way I am able to get a parking space is by using my parking pass in the garage. Trying to find authorized parking without a pass is terrible.

College Sophomore

Parking: attending an off main campus location.

4 College Junior

Parking: Since the school is on a Military facility, parking is free and there is plenty of parking since I go to class in the evening.

3 College Senior

There are parking lots beside the residence halls, plus a parking garage and a few spare lots near academic buildings, but be wary of lots beside residence halls and various academic buildings: Faculty administrators and deans tend to have reserved parking right next to public parking spots, so you have to watch out for the "reserved" signs.

Public Safety tickets for illegal parking have been known to be up to $50 each. The ideal time for the commuter student is to arrive significantly early in the morning and head straight for the third and fourth levels of a parking garage or to the parking lot in front of the bookstore, located next to the Multicultural Center. It helps to sign up for early-morning classes, which is usually a must for freshmen or new students, to find an ideal spot to occupy for the rest of the day.

Facts & Statistics

Student Parking Lot?
Yes
Students can park anywhere on campus where there is not a marker stating otherwise. A few of the places behind and around Webster Hall have reserved parking areas for specific guests or heads of the school, so be aware of these sections. There is also some off-campus parking down on Garden Avenue, next to Route 61 restaurant. Use this only if you are desperate to find parking, since it is quite a walk to the campus.
Freshmen Allowed to Park?
Yes
All students can park anywhere on campus provided they have a parking tag, and the space is not reserved.
Approximate Parking Permit Cost
For commuters, it is $120 a school year or $65 a semester. For those living in the dorms or apartments, the amount is put on your room and board bill.
Best Places to Find a Spot
  • Garden Park Plaza garage
  • University Center parking lot
