3 College Freshman

Parking: It could be improved, but most students don't drive anywhere since everything is close so it's not really an issue.

5 College Freshman

Parking: You can get a parking permit with ease. There isn't much street parking, so it can be difficult to find a spot. There isn't much need for a car on campus-- you can probably find a friend with one if you want to go to a store.

2 College Sophomore

Parking: You get tickets randomly and can never find a place to park. Just don't bring a car, really. it is just a pain.

3 College Sophomore

Parking: Due to the school's small size, there are very few parking spaces around campus.

4 College Freshman

Parking: Lots of spots, somewhat expensive.

Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

A long time in the making, the Scripps parking garage has solved many of the school’s on-campus parking woes. Keeping a car used to be considered a nightmare, and it was not uncommon to see students leaving cars in obscure—and sometimes illegal—corners of campus. However, the administration took notice and constructed a parking garage in the space below the Field House. 

Besides solving the previous parking dilemma on campus, the garage may serve as incentive for students to bring cars to school, leading to more off-campus outings. Along with the existing spaces located near dorms and department buildings, the issue of parking does not look to be of future trouble to Scripps students.
