Parking: Parking is okay they need to lower the cost of the lot parking though.

Parking: Parking was great until construction started, now the commuter lot fills up after 11.

Parking: You need a permit to park anywhere unless you're a visitor. Ticketing and fines are outrageous! You park on campus drive to run into your room and come out 2 minutes later and there is a ticket on your car... we're allowed to be there 5 minutes, there should be no reason for you to ticket me. If security is unsure on how long that car has been sitting there, wait 5 minutes and if the person doesn't show, then ticket them. You can't just see it and assume they've been there over 5 minutes. Also, when they give you a citation, they don't tell you if its a warning or a fine. So suddenly there's an extra charge to your tuition and you can't do anything about it anymore. The off campus lots are difficult to get to due to an unreliable shuttle. The shuttle will be scheduled to arrive at the flagpole on campus at 6:00 so you get there at 5:55. However, the shuttle doesn't arrive until 6:15 putting you behind schedule. The waiting area in the lots is ridiculous. It is a 3 and a half sided glass box with heat lamps on top. However, the panels are not together, there are inch gaps in them allowing wind and cold to get through defeating the purpose of the heat lamps. When you arrive to Lot P after the regular shuttle hours and call for security to pick you up, it takes them at least 30 minutes to get to you. I've gotten sick several times waiting for them when they said a drive is just leaving campus and will be there in a few minutes and ended up waiting 40 minutes.

Parking: I do not have a vehicle on campus, so I cannot provide an adequate review.

Parking: Carthage has on campus parking and off campus parking lots. The on campus parking is for staff, commuter students, and the students will to pay for it. The on campus parking is really pricey. There are three off campus parking lots. They are about a 1/2 mile to a mile off campus. There are shuttles running from the lots to campus every 30 minutes. The permit cost for the other lots are less expensive and more popular.
