5 College Junior

Parking: Any student (any year) can apply for a parking spot on campus. Campus is pretty small, so parking spots are never too far away.

3 College Junior

Parking: There is parking on the North side of campus and behind the dining hall, but those are generally used by upperclassmen. If you have a car your first two years, you'll end up parking in South Lot 2, which is down the hill behind the KAC-- i.e. a real trek.

Parking: Depends on Your Housing – Depending on whether you have been assigned to live on north or south campus, the parking situation can vary. Stickers are assigned to students based on their dorm location. South campus parking is a nightmare and requires students to park at the gym and the bottom of the hill, while north campus is considerably better.

3 College Sophomore

Parking: The Dixie Lot Is Far Away – Due to campus wide construction, parking (though it is not limited) can be far away from student residences. All north campus parking is reserved for juniors and seniors leaving under class students to park in lots located in the far away south lot of Kenyon. If you're truly unlucky you may have to park in the deep south lot (hence: Dixie Lot) and make the long treck back to your dorm. All first years may bring cars, though!

2 College Junior

Parking: They say that we are a walking campus, so far away parking should not be a problem. That being said, parking sports are few if you want to be close. Often you will park next to the KAC with a long walk back to your room.

Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

While parking spots are plentiful, Kenyon tries to discourage cars on campus by providing inconvenient locations to park. The main lots are located down the hill by the athletic center, making the drive to class all but impossible. Seniors who sign up for permits early have a shot at the coveted spots at the top of the hill near dorms, but these require planning ahead and sending in the permit requests early. Kenyon security patrols frequently and tickets those who park outside of their designated "zone."

It is not difficult to obtain a parking space on campus, and freshmen often bring their own vehicles. This anomaly means that there is often someone on every freshman hall with a car, not always the case with other schools. In reality, there is no need for a car on Kenyon's campus since it is so small. However, parking is available for those who desire it.
