So, on a lighter note, I'd like information about parking. Is there a parking pass to purchase? Does the law school have its own lot? Is there generally open parking, or am I better off using public transportation?
As a first year student you cannot park at the law school lot (it is reserved for faculty, staff, 2Ls and 3Ls). You can purchase a commuter parking pass and park by the stadium and then (1) walk to the law school (10-15 mins), (2) take the shuttle to the law school (kind of a long ride because it only makes a loop around campus one way) (3) take a bus to about a block away from the law school and walk from there (5 minute walk). The majority of students walk from the commuter lot. The majority of those who live in the White Course Apartments on campus take a free bus to about a block away from the school and walk from there. There is open parking in the law school lot after 4pm and on weekends. There are 4 buses and 1 shuttle that run for free all around campus, so once you are on campus, it is easy to get anywhere you need to go. Also, many apartments come with bus passes and you can easily take a short bus ride from an off campus apartment to the campus and then walk to the school. Hope this helps!
How much is the commuter parking pass? Thanks.
This year it was $90 for both semesters.
