Parking: Compared to other universities that I have seen, parking is not has bad. However, parking is still difficult with the increasing student population and with the ongoing construction.

3 College Student

Parking: Parking is hard to find, and tickets are expensive. Cars aren't used much though. Everything is near the campus or on campus. I only use my car to get groceries (I mostly use the buses though) and to go home (I live out of state).

2 Recent Alumnus

Parking: For the amount of students that attend UAB, there are nowhere near the necessary amount of parking spaces available. Students pay for a permit that lasts a semester long, but then have to park blocks away from their class and/or arrive to campus early simply to find a spot. Many students park off campus and walk the rest of the way to avoid the hassle.
