4 College Freshman

Parking: A car is not really necessary to attend Linfield. Lots of restaurants, grocery stores etc are within easy walking distance. I have a car at school so I can go home on weekends. The lot I park in always have spaces available and is right behind my dorm. $85 a year for parking is a pretty good deal.

2 College Junior

Parking: Hardly anywhere to park, especially during games. Students get parking tickets all of the time.

4 College Freshman

Parking: There is plenty of parking to be found at Linfield, but the lots are a bit of a walk away from the buildings in some areas. The lots are kept fairly clean. All students who wish to park on campus must have a permit, which keeps overcrowding to a minimum.

4 College Senior

Parking: There is no need for a car in this small campus and small town. However, if you have a car, there is a plenty of parking space, I think. I rarely see parkings full on a typical days. If you can not park nearby your class building, you can park further away and walk to the class.

3 College Freshman

Parking: They charge you lots if you don't have a permit, and sometimes its hard to find a place to park. I knew one person who had to park their car at Albertson's!

Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

Overall, students are very satisfied with the amount of available parking on campus. Students comment that it is not difficult to find parking; however, it does depend on where you live. There are some parts of campus with larger parking lots, especially near the residence halls. However, parking becomes more difficult if there are large events going on, where it becomes a challenge to find a good parking spot. Generally, parking is bad when students need to find a close space for unpacking. While there are many parking lots on campus with available spaces, most spaces are not conveniently located for students.

All students, including freshmen, are allowed to have a car on campus by registering their vehicles annually for $85. After registering, a parking permit will be issued to a student, and the sticker must be displayed on the driver's side of the rear window, where it is readily visible. A visitor can park in any regular parking space. Parking on Founder's Way in front of Melrose and Riley Halls is restricted to visitors and handicapped parking. Vehicles with three or more unpaid citations within a school year may not be parked in the Linfield Parking District, and will be towed if found on College property. If a vehicle is towed, it will not be released until the owner has paid all towing and storage fees, in addition to all outstanding fines.
