4 College Sophomore

Parking: parking is free for everyone which is a great perk. I am also able to park right in front of my dorm

3 College Junior

Parking: Our school is small therefore parking is readily available all around campus.

4 College Junior

Parking: There not any real issues with parking. The main parking area for students fills up quickly but there is an overflow lot and it has shuttle service. Although, the overflow lot is walking distance away from the the campus. A car is not needed on campus. Permits are free and fines are pretty fair.

3 College Freshman

Parking: The permit was free and there is a separate lot reserved for students that live on campus. The lot is located right next to the residence halls, which is super convenient. HOWEVER, the staff and some of the commuter students love to take up all the spots in the daytime.

3 College Freshman

Parking: you don't really need a car to drive to class unless you are a commuter.

Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

Many students find parking at Barry to be a bit difficult. Unless you arrive early, you may have to park in the overflow lot, which is the farthest from the buildings. The commuter parking lots are on Northeast 111th and Northeast 115th streets, but many  park in the dorm lots to avoid the drama of trying to find parking spaces in the commuter lots. On the plus side, parking permits are free, regardless of whether you’re a resident or commuter.

If you are in a rush, be careful to abide by the rules, or you may get a ticket. Non-moving violations will result in a $30 ticket, while moving violations will get you a $50 ticket. If you park in a disabled person lot without a permit, you will be charged $75. So, make sure you understand the rules of parking before bringing your car to campus; otherwise, you may find yourself in the Public Safety Office, complaining about the ticket you received. Overall, the best advice when it comes to parking at Barry is get to campus earlier than most students, and you will rarely have to worry about parking issues.
