Parking on or near campus isn't cheap. Parking in the school decks is often limited and requires a permit and pass, which costs around $215 per semester for commuters. Parking in the housing decks is slightly pricier for residents. Free parking is available at the Atlanta Braves Stadium (also known as Turner Field) on non-game days, but students have to park there and then take a shuttle to campus (about a 10-minute ride). Spots fill up quickly in those lots, however; so arriving early is often a must if students want to make it to class on time. Also, if student cars are parked in these lots on game days, they will be towed.
Non-school affiliated parking lots are all over campus, and usually range from $3 to $10 per day, depending on how close to campus the lot is. The only downside to parking in these lots is that a.) students generally have to have correct change (machines usually take the money); b.) the lot may be blocks away from the classroom buildings; and c.) cars could get booted or towed if owners aren't careful. How often the parking rules are enforced depends on the private companies that manage and own the lots.
