Annual Campus Parking Fee

Postby Sherwood2014 » Wed Aug 10, 2011 11:28 pm

How much does your school charge for annual campus parking?

In a recent poll 40% of those polled said they used public transportation. This outcome begs the question of the annual campus-parking fee.

For me, and I'm guess others who are living in a large city, the problem isn't just the price of parking at school, but also the price of a parking permit for your building or a permit for street parking. I'll definitely miss my car.

I have no idea. It's part of our student fees, but the law school has its own garage right next to that portion of campus. No undergrads allowed.

bicycle > car

But I think they go for ~$500 for a garage pass.

My school offers several different price ranges. In UG parking was slightly under $100. The lowest parking fee for law school is for the parking area furthest from the law school building. I am opting for a slightly higher fee that falls into your $750-$1000 range. I think the fee is high but less than half of the big city northern school I considered. . .which was close to $2,000! Hard to understand why parking is so expensive and why it is not included as part of the tuition.

This. School parking is pretty much the same cost as a discounted transit pass for us, but the added price of garage parking in my building makes it much more expensive.

To beg the question doesn't actually mean to beg the question, which is why I hate the phrase and can never remember what it actually means. I think it means to obviate the question, which doesn't mean "to make obvious". Anyway, it's a stupid phrase for not meaning what it says. :roll:

$150 a semester, not too bad considering there is a lot literally next to the law school building

pitt is 350 a semester. Parking is on the opposite side of campus, while the bus stop is literally in front of the law school. The bus pass is pre paid with your tuition money ( so you dont have to pay more to ride the buses) and runs from 6 until 10ish ( depending on whatbus you are taking).
