1 College Senior

Parking: Overpriced and hard to find a spot.

2 College Sophomore

Parking: The cost of parking on campus is astronomical and a lot of spots are reserved for faculty.

1 Recent Alumnus

Parking: Never any free parking that's less than a mile away from where you're going, especially when you pay for a parking pass ($350/year).

3 College Junior

Parking: For the limited size of campus, the lack of parking available makes sense.

2 College Sophomore

Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

John Carroll students agree that parking is often a major issue around campus. Although the parking lots are close to the dorms as well as the academic buildings, the cost of permits, the difficulty of finding a parking spot, and the strict enforcement over the parking lots can all be very irritating to students. Generally, John Carroll's campus does not allow for too much parking, but there is some—you just have to work for it. Also, specific students must park their cars at either the Green Road Annex (about a mile away) or the Target parking lot (about two miles away) and take the shuttle to get from their cars to campus.

Recently, the temporary parking lot on campus was demolished to make it into a green space, which left students upset and puzzled. There are plans for a parking garage on campus, but they have not yet been approved by the city. The old Bohannon Science Center is expected to be torn down, and the parking garage should start construction by fall 2011. Whether this will actually happen or not is a mystery.
