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.
