3 College Sophomore

Parking: Permits are a bit expensive, and all the close parking spots are hard to grab. Everything is really close however so most people just walk and only have their cars to get home and to the grocery store.

2 College Freshman

Parking: hard to find a parking spot. i never move my car because ill never get a spot if i do

3 College Senior

Parking: I dont have a car, but it is pretty easy to keep a car on campus. I think the parking permits are around $90? But after five or on weekends you can park anywhere on campus without a permit because public safety stops checking.

Parking: It's $90 (last I heard) for a parking permit. Which if you are struggling to make ends meet is a bit pricy. But for those who have a permit you have to compete for parking. Most people get a spot and never move, if you commute good luck, there is one street for commuters to park without getting a ticket and you can only park there for a maximum amount of 3 hours. Campus Security are real jerks in regards to handing out tickets (which are $30 a ticket)... I once parked in a loading zone, for 10 minutes at 1:50 AM and got a ticket in that short time. They also ticket people in the Senior dorm that is near the top of the hill and has no sign saying you must have a permit to park there. If it snows and you can't see the lines, so everyone is parked strange, CONGRATULATIONS you've won a ticket. Also they aren't suppose to ticket on weekends, but they do.... Your best bet is the free parking which is up at the top of a hill where deer will stalk you.

3 College Freshman

Parking: You don't need a car on campus if you plan on staying on campus, though to get any real stores you have to drive. Work out a good carpooling situation and you'll be set. There is lots of parking on campus, but sometimes it's at the top of a hill.

Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

Parking has gotten a little better in recent years, even if the prices have gone up. Students can park almost anywhere around campus, although it's a little more sparse around the dorms. Look on the bright side: It's a hilly campus, so the 5- to 10-minute walk from parking lots to campus destinations can be a workout, helping you fight the Freshman 15 in the process

Despite the hassle, you may as well bring your car to campus, as it's the main way students get around successfully. You must purchase a parking permit from the Public Safety office. The yearly fee is $90 per vehicle. You can register yours during orientation or at any time during the semester.
