How has your parking experience been? The earlier the worse it is, traffic is way worse, parking is way worse. It’s pretty absurd, they charge you when they don’t have enough spots for everyone.

Have you used the valet service? One time I had trouble getting out because other cars were blocking my car. I was parked by the SWRC, my friend had that problem too and she was parked by Parkside.

How has your parking experience been? Oh my god. During the first month, parking is really bad. Yesterday I didn’t even find parking on campus, I parked off campus. After the first-month parking’s great.

Have you used the valet service? I tried, but they were full. I tried G12, by the gym, there were two parking spots, I saw them, and they were like “no, we’re full.”

How has your parking experience been? Parking is pretty easy. I find parking really easy because I show up really early. Parking isn’t too bad in the structure.

Have you used the valet service? I would consider it, but I havent had to yet, if I had like 15 minutes to get to class I would use it.

How has your parking experience been? Absolutely horrible. I came to class an hour early and didn’t find parking until 40 minutes into my class. I came to class late for the first day.

Have you used the valet service? I tried, but they didn’t have enough space, so I ended up having to search for a spot anyways. They were already full by 11 a.m.
