2 College Junior

Parking: The friend's car got broken into last semester and nothing was seen by the cameras. Very poor parking enforcement.

2 Recent Alumnus

Parking: Parking is very difficult at Sage for many reasons. First the two campuses were not "walking friendly" in regards to safety. It is scary walking through a city with one of the highest crime rates around the Albany area. I wish there was more lot parking with security cameras and security guards that would make things much more safe!

3 College Senior

Parking: It costs $65 to get a parking pass for the year, they don't allow you to get one for just one semester. The parking lot is dangerously set up and there are few spots that always fill up quickly because the school has taken in more students.

3 College Junior

Parking: There are rarely spots close to UHCS or Froman Hall but the Armory is available for students and staff

4 College Sophomore

Parking: plenty of spots for everyone, and right near the dorms, the campus is small enough where you dont have to drive and find a parking space near classes

Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

All students are allowed to have a car on campus, including freshmen. Parking permits cost $40, and they are good for one year. As the semester goes on, the cost of parking permits decreases; they will be $25 after the fall semester and $15 after the spring semester. Parking permits are recommended, as permits are required in order to park in any of the campus lots. There are two commuter parking lots and one resident lot ("the Big Lot").

Street parking is available; however, spots fill up quickly. Street parking rules are enforced by the city. Be sure to read street signs, since parking is unavailable on certain streets every day due to street cleaning. Students may get their cars towed or receive a ticket if they are parked where a sign says not to. Parking on campus is enforced by Public Safety. Students can park in the lots with a parking permit, but sometimes students make mistakes, which cost them tickets. For example, resident students should not park in the commuter lots, and commuter students should not park in the faculty/staff lot. It is very important to become familiar with on- and off-campus regulations.

Facts & Statistics

Student Parking Lot?
Students who are commuters and residents are allowed to park in "the Big Lot" (left of Division Street). There are two commuter lots and they are both on First Street. One is on the block before you enter the College on the right-hand side (make sure to park on the commuter side, not the visitor side), and the other one is on the left-hand side before the faculty/staff lot, about a block away from the other one. There is always parking on Division Street, First Street, and Second Street, but make sure to read the parking signs. Anyone who decides to park in an on-campus lot needs to have a parking permit.
Freshmen Allowed to Park?
All incoming freshmen are allowed to have their cars on campus.

Getting a Parking Permit
Obtaining a parking permit at Sage is very easy. Public Safety is in charge of parking permits, so all you have to do is go to Public Safety (which is located in the John Paine Building on the first floor). Just tell them you'd like a parking permit and make sure that you have your Sage ID card as well as your car registration. You'll fill out the form and then get the parking permit. It is very simple and should only take five minutes.
