I don't use a car on campus, so I never have to deal with parking

It is expensive to have a permit compared to schools in our conference.

It costs $1000 for a permit and even then you get ticketed all the time ex: moving into your dorm, dropping off groceries etc.

I always get a great parking spot before 8am (I am a commuter), but after 9 to 10am, forget any good parking spot. You're gonna be walking!

The options for parking are good in that they offer several options of where to park. However, where they lack would be their pricing and the actual states of some of the lots. Considering Kenosha is located on Lake Michigan and is simply a part of Wisconsin, winters tend to be very wet and cold. This provides multiple conflicts with the poor souls who park in R and P lot. The stop in Lot R fails to adequately shelter the people waiting for the shuttle there, as the walls are panes of glass with spaces between the support beams, allowing both the low temperature and the win to seep easily in. There are also two open doorways, which certainly contribute to the cold factor. The good news is the lamp in the stop is heated, which provides some degree of warmth...if you stand on the bench, anyway. Most times the students will wait in their cars until the shuttle comes and sprint as they are able to the shuttle to ensure they have a seat for the ride back. (The night shuttles only seat 11, so one must be quick to get back to campus before the "slowpokes.") The shelter is also rather small, allowing about eight people to sit comfortably and the remainder to stand awkwardly staring out at the lot. Luckily for the students, plowing is done during snowstorms, so one only needs to dig the rest of the way out of their space to hit the road. The entire area is gated with only the ID card and parking sticker-wielding being allowed access. This presents a good feeling of security, and cameras add to that effect. Lot P doesn't have a winter shelter of any kind; the best that can happen is that the security guard will either be kind enough to let them stay in the cramped security booth with them, or the people must wait in their cars and hope the shuttle actually runs through the lot. Winters simply aren't the best for these lots. The lot itself would present itself as rather shady: a barbed wire fence surrounds the majority of it, with something resembling a junkyard easily visible through the fence; a warehouse and other parking lot are the only other neighbors to P Lot. At least this one has a gate, too; that grants some degree of comfort that one's car will not be vandalized. Lot V has an actual shelter, with a closed doorway to keep the cold out, though no gate, and Lot A is located on campus, so both of these are better off in the winter. The pricing can be seen as slightly outrageous, however. Lot A, being on campus, costs $1000/year, Lot V $315/year, and Lots R and P $75/year. Considering that the latter lots were free the year before with no improvements being made to the lots themselves (such as building adequate shelters), the heightened cost seems unwarranted. Lot V's price can be seen as understandable, as it is relatively close to campus and has a good shelter, but Lot A's seems almost ludicrous to the college kid there on loans, scholarships, and personal earnings. Either way, parking spots are readily available in many of the lots, though one has to arrive at the right time to attain one close to the shuttle stop. I wouldn't say the entire system is outstanding, but it got me through last year, once I got the rhythm down, and I hope the changes made for this year won't completely drag it all down the tubes.
