3 College Junior

Parking: Make sure to park in the right spot if not you will get a ticket

1 College Sophomore

Parking: Parking is horrible on campus. The built a new dorm building where a parking lot was and now it is harder to get a spot. A resident can find one but usually in the garage only. Commuters also have horrible parking and may need to park off campus.

2 College Junior

Parking: Although Worcester has created a 6 floor parking garage, I hear a lot of students complaining a lot about parking, especially commuters. Residents and commuters have their own designated parking areas and their just never seems to be enough for everyone to fit.

1 College Sophomore

Parking: You have to pay $50 to get a parking pass. However, in order to get a spot you must arrive before 7:30 even though classes don't begin for another hour. If you have a class at 12:00 there is no way you will find a spot. They have off campus parking with a shuttle however, the shuttle only holds 6-8 people and runs every half hour, never in sync with class times. Parking at this school in general is horrible.

1 College Junior

Parking: If I could give the parking negative starts I would. Parking is terrible for commuter students. Faculty and staff park wherever they can find an open spot regardless is they are taking a commuter spot or not. Campus police never enforce parking rules or regulations unless it is a commuter breaking a rule. I have to arrive on campus 2 hours before my classes start simply to find a spot on campus. the off campus parking the school provides is not logical to me because i go straight from class to work and cannot afford to wait the half hour the shuttle requires. The way commuters are treated is one of the reasons i wish i never attended Worcester State. if it was in my financial ability, i would transfer to a different school in a heartbeat.
