3 College Freshman

Parking: The construction causes students that are not living in the apartments on the other side of campus to all have to park in 2 lots, so parking during the day and after 10 p.m. Is awful.

4 College Freshman

Parking: There are many parking lots available.

3 College Sophomore

Parking: Parking is not to bad of a problem if you live off-campus. The school is very easy to walk around, even for being a large campus.

4 College Sophomore

Parking: Need for a Car – Most students don't need a car. Most of what we need is within a 5-10 walk from campus (i.e. Kroger, restaurants, take-out, Starbucks). If she needs to go somewhere, chances are she has a friend with a car willing to take her or take the shuttle on the weekends.

4 College Senior

Parking: I think the parking on campus is very convenient. The only thing is that when there are community events held on our campus, parking is VERY limited - if there is any free parking at all!

Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

Going to a small college has its parking perks. The best one: All students are allowed to have a car on campus, free of charge. Wesleyan policy requires students to register their cars with campus police. By doing so, students get a parking decal (also free), which must be seen on their car at all times in order to avoid getting a ticket. Also, unless there is a big event happening on campus, availability is usually high. Dorms and apartment buildings have their own parking lots, so residents don't have to worry about walking across campus in order to get to their car. In regard to enforcement, the campus police take parking violations seriously. They allow students and staff to temporarily park in unauthorized areas, as long as they inform them in advance and leave their hazard lights on. 

The only parking issue students encounter is limited space when Wesleyan hosts a local event, such as the Cherry Blossom Festival. In order to better regulate traffic, campus police close off certain roads and/or parking lots to accommodate visitors. This can be frustrating to residents because they risk losing a parking space if they leave campus. Off campus, however, there is never a parking issue. Some restaurants and businesses have small parking lots, but students always find a place to park.
