2 College Sophomore

Parking: There is absolutely nowhere to park by the library and there was always minimal parking outside Bica-Ross residence hall. I've received several parking tickets just because I had no other options.

4 College Freshman

Parking: On campus parking is free. Students do have to register their vehicle and have a parking pass visible, which is not a problem. There is one parking lot on campus and a couple of parking lots on the outside edges of the campus. The outside lots are very large and all cars have parking.

4 College Freshman

Parking: Finding parking can sometimes be difficult but most of the time it is reasonable parking.

3 College Freshman

Parking: I don't have a car here, so I can't say much, but what I have heard about parking is decent.

3 College Sophomore

Parking: Campus is small enough to walk around to class. The cost for a permit is free, but campus security love giving fines to people. Since the campus is small it is very hard to find a parking space around campus. I would say the busiest time for people driving around campus is during the winter because of the cold, snowy days we get.

Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

Mount Union students love the fact that parking is free and anyone can have a car on campus, but for most, the situation still leaves something to be desired. There are parking lots scattered all around, but campus is mainly set up for walking. Parking is restricted based on where students live, so driving to class is almost unheard of. Residential students are only permitted to park in the zone designated for their dorm or house, or in open lots located on the outskirts of campus. If spots fill up, the only recourse is to park on the street (in the jurisdiction of the Alliance Police Department) or in the incorrect zone (risking a ticket from Campus Security).

The first ticket from Campus Security is $10 and the second is $25. With the third offense, the ticket is $25, and the vehicle is booted (which costs an additional $50 to remove). For the fourth offense and up, the ticket is $25, and the vehicle is towed at the owner's expense. Many students are willing to risk the fines and park wherever they can find a spot on campus, but the penalties are enough to keep a good number in their assigned zones. Fortunately, campus is small enough that wherever you park will seldom be more than a 10-minute walk from where you're going.

Facts & Statistics

Student Parking Lot?
Parking at Mount Union is determined by where you live. Students in traditional residence halls are assigned to a general parking zone. Residents of Bica-Ross, Shields, McMaster, Ketcham, and Elliott Halls are assigned to the Northern Parking Zone, located next to the Hoover-Price Campus Center. Residents of King, Miller, McCready, and Cunningham Halls are assigned to the Southern Zone, located on the south side of State Street across from campus. Residents of Hoiles-Peterson Hall and Alpha Tau Omega fraternity house are assigned to the Eastern Zone, near Bracy Hall. Residents of other fraternity houses, theme houses, townhouses, or apartments can park in the lots adjacent to these buildings. Additionally, there are several lots for commuters, and some open parking available to anyone.
Freshmen Allowed to Park?
Freshmen living on campus may park in the lot assigned to their residence hall or in open parking. Freshmen living off campus may park in commuter lots or open parking.
