Parking: I don't have a car but all my friends who do just have trouble finding spots close to where they want to be sometimes.

Parking: Just pick a spot and park

Parking: As with most schools, there is a fee you have to pay if you are going to park on campus. This fee almost doubles if you are living on campus and would still like to have your car there. This is simply because Hiram is a very small school that only takes up about a block, so parking is limited.

1 College Sophomore

Parking: There are not enough parking spots for the number of students that attend Hiram, they are even getting rid of some previous parking spots.

Parking: Much Needed – Parking on campus is usually far away for everyone. The permit cost wasn't too much, about 75 dollars for the whole year. You have to walk down and up a big hill to get to all the parking spots though. I don't know what I would do without my car on campus. Everywhere around here you need a car to get to; there is really nothing around.

Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

An old rumor always seems to circulate that Hiram's president, when asked what he would do about the parking problem, responded, "It's not a parking problem—it’s a walking problem." So you will find a spot if you need one, but you may have to walk pretty far. Permits cost a little more than $60 and last the whole year. Just be careful when parking on the streets: You'll get ticketed by the police for leaving your car there overnight. If you violate a campus parking code, you will be ticketed by the school. The Campus Safety office is in charge of this, so it is possible for students to "sweet talk" their way out of paying it.

The general mood of students is one of discontent. Parking is scarce, far from the dorms, and permits are expensive. But it is almost necessary to have a car on campus, due to the distance of any nearby grocery stores.
