3 College Sophomore

Parking: I dont usually have a problem.

1 College Junior

Parking: The parking on campus is absolutely ridiculous. Each year the campus expands but the parking lots do not.

1 College Junior

Parking: We have a very limited space, and the parking passes are very expensive.

3 College Freshman

Parking: It costs $300 for a parking spot. First year students are able to have cars on campus. We do need more parking.

1 College Sophomore

Parking: A parking pernit costs $300! And that's if you're lucky to get one on time! The parking on campus is very limited. Commuters and residents alike have to fight for spots in the tiny parking lots. Even worse, there is no off-campus parking.You will get a ticket from the campus police if you don't have a parking permit.

Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

Bay Path college has a strict policy of where to park on campus. The campus parking permits are around $150 and are available to any student. Students may park mainly in the upper lots of the school parking lot; namely, lot C and those that are after it. Campus Public Safety keeps a strict policy on where students can park, and they ticket often. The fee for parking obstruction is $10 most of the time.

To avoid any parking problems, students just need to understand that they cannot park near the dorms for longer than an hour. If they have to, then they will most likely have to clear it with Public Safety. Otherwise, all cars should be parked in the lots, unless you have a special permit such as a handicapped permit. Parents who drive their children back or are helping them unpack are allowed to park, but only for a a short time. Other than that, parking is readily available in the school lots during all hours, and the parking lots are very safe to walk at night as they are watched carefully by Public Safety.
