4 College Sophomore

Parking: Coe's a small school so they usually have plenty of parking space. It's usually around $100 for the entire year's parking.

3 College Sophomore

Parking: Eby parking lot sucks because it is built so strange (if you go down a lane but there are no spots, you have to back up because the lanes don't loop around). But if you park by Vorhees or the new apartments it isn't so bad. There, there is always at least a dozen open spaces on a normal day.

3 College Senior

Parking: Personally I've never had trouble finding parking, but I have heard from other students that parking is difficult sometimes. Every year there seems to be more cars and the same amount of parking spots.

3 College Sophomore

Parking: There could be more parking, especially when I work late and have to walk 3 or 4 blocks alone.

5 College Freshman

Parking: Parking is super easy, and there are a ton of parking lots all over campus. The only trouble is the people who park forever in Voorhees circle, and that's not Coe's fault.

Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

Students at Coe pay $90 annually for parking. While the cost is reasonable, students do sometimes find difficulty in finding parking spaces. Students are fined $80 to $150 for parking in an inappropriate spot (faculty/staff parking or handicapped spaces).

The small student community helps if you are looking for a parking spot as a student. As most students live on campus and most off-campus students live within walking distance from the College, not too many students own cars. So, the problem of students not having a parking spot is seldom an ordeal. It seems the students are generally pleased with the parking services provided by the College.
