Parking is not a problem for students who live on campus because they get an on-campus resident parking permit, allowing them to park in all the lots on campus. They are also guaranteed a parking spot in the closest lot or structure to their residence building.
Once a student moves off campus, he or she has to purchase a commuter permit, which only allows them to park in Lastinger Structure. Since the majority of upperclassmen live off campus, they are usually all fighting for the same parking spots. As a result, students who live close to campus usually walk or bike to avoid parking at all. Students are automatically charged annually for an on-campus resident permit, but if they do not have a car or live off campus, they can easily waive this fee online.
