2 College Senior

Parking: There is absolutely not enough parking on north side. By JVAC there's plenty, but we gotta get more behind Pearl.

2 College Freshman

Parking: Not too many parking spots.

4 College Sophomore

Parking: The parking cost is like 25$, and you wont be driving around campus to your classes.

3 College Freshman

Parking: There is not a whole lot of parking but at the same time this isn't that big of a campus. I think for the size of the campus and size of student body there is a good amout of parking.

5 College Freshman

Parking: Plenty of parking everywhere. Never been a problem.

Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

The ease of parking at Centre is usually taken for granted. There is always an available spot somewhere near where you are trying to go, although it may involve a few minutes to walk from your parking spot to your dorm. Freshmen are allowed to bring cars, and many people on campus have a car, which is odd, because you don't need it to go anywhere on Centre's campus. The best places to park are behind Nevin/Breck, behind Bingham, and the lot behind Yerkes/Cheek/Evans. These places are well-lit and a minute's walk from the dorms, which is handy, especially during move-in and move-out days. Of course, this also explains why these lots are almost always full.

DPS is serious about fining cars parked in faculty or staff lots. Weekends and evenings after 5 p.m., you can park anywhere, but at 8 a.m. the next morning, they are out in the lots ticketing. It's also easy to forget where you parked your car because you'll end up walking everywhere, and then when you need it to go off campus, it may take a couple of tries to remember where you left it. Having your decal on your back window is also a must, as it will elicit a quick ticket without its proper display. There is also a channel to contest tickets, and students have been able to repeal their fines.

Did You Know?
Accumulating more than three parking tickets spells trouble when DPS immobilizes your car with a portable boot device, and then charges $25 a day (plus the original parking fine) until you have it removed by calling them.
