4 College Freshman

Parking: Most parking is on campus. That is not free. Off campus is free, but you wouldn't use it because everyone lives on campus. Cars are nice, but you don't necessarily need one. You can walk into town if you really need to, but most people stay on campus to do things. You'll probably know at least one person who has a car anyway.

Parking: Parking spaces are pretty crowded since there isn't a whole lot of room on the hill. Parking doesn't really get good until you are a junior, but even then, depending upon where you live it can still be bad. Parking permits are now up to $100 which I think is pretty egregious for how little parking spaces there are.

Parking: The cost to park on campus is reasonable and there are always free spots for students. But as a freshman, you will get the worst parking.

3 College Sophomore

Parking: I don't have a car on campus, but parking seems ok. Some of my friends have cars at school and are always able to find a place to park. Freshmen parking is inconveniently located though.

3 College Sophomore

Parking: Parking before class is not really an issue, as campus is small enough that getting to class is easier to do on foot. Getting to your car, especially as a freshman, takes longer than it would to get to the class in the first place.
Parking long term is a little bit of a hassle, as the student parking lots can be a good distance from the dorms, especially for a first-year.

Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors
Parking is a bit of a problem on campus. There aren't enough parking spaces, and most parking spaces are inconveniently located. You have to remember that Denison is located on top of a hill, and even if you have a car, your parking will probably still require you to walk uphill or walk some sort of distance. Getting a parking permit at Denison is easy; just register your car and pay $85. Unlike a lot of college campuses, freshmen are allowed to have a car on campus. However, first-year parking is inconvenient, and a lot of freshmen end up not using their car as much, unless they live close to home. As you progress through the years, parking gets easier and closer to the buildings in which you'll live. Seniors have the best parking, but their spots fill up fast. If you park illegally or in teacher parking (even for a few minutes), you will get ticketed. Denison security has no sympathy for cars not being parked in their respective spots and constantly makes rounds, ticketing throughout the day.

Good Luck Getting a Spot Here
It's nearly impossible to find a spot on East Quad near your residence hall. So many juniors have cars that they often end up parking far from their buildings, and often end up behind East, the freshman dorm.
Getting a Parking Permit
It is really easy to get a parking permit at Denison, and it costs $65. The most difficult part of parking comes after you get the permit and actually have to find spot.
