2 College Senior

Parking: There is still a need for parking. While the new parking tower makes it possible to at least find a parking spot it is still not enough. I have spent twenty minutes during an event trying to get parking to get to class.

3 College Sophomore

Parking: The parking isn't that bad. They are building more parking garages, so everyone will benefit from it.

3 College Senior

Parking: It's difficult to find a space if you don't get on campus early

2 College Freshman

Parking: There isn't enough parking spaces for on-campus people

College Freshman

Parking: I don't own a car but I see some of the struggle my friends go through.

Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

Parking on campus is kind of free—it's included in a mandatory Transportation Access Fee. So everyone is required to pay for parking in some way, but it's really only beneficial for those who have cars. So you don't have to pay for a permit because you already are paying with tuition!

Students can park in blue permit and green permit lots. Their permit stickers should be affixed on the outside of the driver's side of the back windshield, and the permit cannot be altered in any way. Students should make sure that the permit is visible at all times while the vehicle is parked on campus. If a permit is not properly displayed and a student gets caught, he or she can pay a fine of $25.
