We do not have sufficient parking for the amount of people at this school.
We do offer a lot of alternative ways of getting to school, but the majority of the students at HSU live off campus or are commuters.
Campus permits are extremely expensive, and even then it's a lottery system, so you have no idea if you will even get a spot. I have been to classes 20 minutes late trying to find a spot before.
But, the minute you park somewhere and your meter runs out or anything, you can bet your brother that you will have a ticket that is at least 40$.

If you have a car, plan to arrive on campus 30 minutes before class. It is a nightmare to find a spot! Half of the parking lots are reserved for residents or staff so the general parking sucks. The cost of the parking permits is $150 each semester for a car, motorcycle I believe is $40 a semester. They do prorate it as the semester goes on. I parked off campus, which is hard and very far, until the price went down to $90 (took four weeks). Be careful of parking off campus as some neighborhoods require a parking permit and the signs that say that are scarce. If you park illegally on campus, you will get a ticket! They are strict and do not give pity. If you're parked illegally for a long period of time, they may give you another ticket on the same day. I once had to be rushed to the hospital via ambulance and my car was parked at a meter. When I was released 12 hours later, I had four tickets and they did not care that I was hospitalized so I still had to pay the fines ($33 each).

it's hard to find parking nearby if you get here after 9am and parking permits are expensive

HSU and arcata are best traveled by bike. It will be a challenge to find a spot on campus everyday if you commute, unless you arrive very early.

When you have a car and you live on campus i recommend that you dont drive your car at all til about 5pm, thats when everybody usually is out of class and you can find a parking spot. If you leave early during the week youll never find a parking spot.
Sorry, there are no reviews.
