4 College Freshman

Parking: Parking is free for residents, and there is a lot right in front of my dorm, which is also an easy walking distance from my classes. However, if spots fill up, the next available lot is on the other side of campus. When I am parked though, I hardly need to use my car at all around campus. I only take my car out when I need to go off campus.

4 College Freshman

Parking: You get a parking with your Dorm!

3 College Freshman

Parking: The fee is reasonable but it is difficult to find spots sometimes. Also, a lot of tickets are given out if a student doesn't have the correct parking pass.

5 College Freshman

Parking: In parking they are very reasonable and it's free, you can never go wrong with free!

3 College Junior

Parking: I would say that the parking is pretty average. I usually find a parking spot everyday because we have a smaller campus even if you park farther from your classes you can get there in a good amount of time.

Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

CLU makes parking an easy and quick process for students, commuters, faculty, and staff. For one, parking is free, and so are the permits. Individuals with vehicles must obtain a parking permit by filling out a form online or in person at the Welcome Center. Each parking permit sticker is good for one academic school year and must be replaced with a new one when the next school year comes around. Parking permits can be picked up at the Welcome Center. There is a general parking lot where anyone can park, even if they don’t have a parking permit sticker. Other parking lots and spaces indicate who is allowed to park there. “R” stands for residents who live on campus, “C” stands for student commuters, and “S” stands for staff and faculty. All residence halls have parking lots for student residents. Commuters, staff, and faculty may park in the general parking lot and campus streets.

Campus Public Safety continually check out the parking lots and spaces to ensure that people are parking in the appropriate spots. Although CPS gives out citations, the ticket fees are rather inexpensive compared to other schools.

Facts & Statistics

Student Parking Lot?
Students with permits can park anywhere on campus with signs indicating an "R," "C," or both. "R" indicates residents (students who live on campus) and "C" indicates commuters (students who live at home and drive to school). All residence halls have parking lots near the halls with "R" signs. Students with "R" parking permits may not park on the streets throughout the campus, such as Faculty Street, Luther Avenue, Pioneer Avenue, Regent Avenue, and Memorial Parkway. These streets are designated for commuters, staff, and faculty. A large general parking lot is open to all students, regardless of the letter on their parking permit, along Mountclef Boulevard and Olsen Road.
Freshmen Allowed to Park?
Freshmen residing on campus and with a car may park in the "R" indicated parking lots. All freshman residence halls have parking lots for residents. Freshman commuters with a car may park in the "C" indicated parking lots and in the general parking lot.

Getting a Parking Permit
Obtaining a CLU parking permit is an easy process. You can either fill out an online form to get a parking permit or fill out the form in person at the Welcome Center. All students, faculty, and commuters with a car parked on campus must have a parking permit sticker. Most stickers are placed on the back window, usually in the upper or lower corners. Each sticker is good for one academic school year, and a new one must replace the old one for the next school year. Parking permits can be picked up at the Welcome Center, mailed to your home address, or placed in your CLU campus mailbox, if you have one. Individuals with no parking permit sticker will receive citations.
