4 College Sophomore

Parking: Permits cost almost nothing and the tickets are cheap but are enough money to make people choose the proper parking spot. There is designated parking for different groups which makes it easier and there are enough spots. A car is only needed when leaving campus, which most people don't feel the need to do.

4 College Sophomore

Parking: The parking on campus is very easy and it only costs $10 for a pass and it lasts all four years. Very happy with parking here.

3 College Sophomore

Parking: Freshman parking is far from dorms and too strict.

Parking: Parking is pretty good. there are enough spots if you know where to look.

2 College Sophomore

Parking: It's a miserable experience to be a freshman with a car. Once you pass freshman year it's not awful.

Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

Hanover is an incredibly pedestrian campus, so most students only use their cars to travel off campus, like to Madison or home for the weekend. It only takes a 15-minute walk to get from the far side of campus to the other, so students walk everywhere. Most residence halls and campus housing are only 5 to 10 minutes away from academic buildings, so no one has very far to go. Students who bring cars on campus must register their vehicles by filling out a form at the security building at the beginning of the year. Students are given a sticker that goes on the front windshield of their cars, making them recognizable to Campus Security.

Parking is available near most residence halls, but parking near academic buildings is very limited because the College promotes walking to class. Freshmen have a separate parking lot on the outskirts of campus, but they cannot bring cars to campus until after fall break, unless they receive a special permit or live more than 150 miles away. Many students have bicycles on campus, and there are plenty of bike racks where you can lock them up.
