There are not a lot of on-campus parking options for students. First-year students are not allowed to have a car on campus, unless they get special permission from the Office of Public Safety; however, freshman and sophomore students may be assigned spaces at the Forks Town Center lot, a distance that they can traverse if they take the Lafayette shuttle service—or have someone else give them a ride. On-campus parking passes cost around $380 a year, on a first-come, first-served basis. Seniors who live in off-campus housing have some more leeway when it comes to parking, but they do need to obtain a parking permit from the city of Easton.
Visitors and faculty members have a couple of parking options: the Sullivan Parking Deck, the parking lot at March Field, South College Drive, and by the Simon Center. However, students do not have access to these reserved spots. Students can park in front of the Farinon College Center but only for a limited time; when that time is up, Public Safety will enforce the five-minute rule and ensure that vehicles are removed. Parking tickets can amount to a substantial cost, and unless it is absolutely necessary, most students will opt out of having a car on campus. If in desperate need of transportation, students can enlist the help of Public Safety (which offers an escort service) or take the local LANta bus to get around Easton.
