Overall, students are very satisfied with the amount of available parking on campus. Students comment that it is not difficult to find parking; however, it does depend on where you live. There are some parts of campus with larger parking lots, especially near the residence halls. However, parking becomes more difficult if there are large events going on, where it becomes a challenge to find a good parking spot. Generally, parking is bad when students need to find a close space for unpacking. While there are many parking lots on campus with available spaces, most spaces are not conveniently located for students.
All students, including freshmen, are allowed to have a car on campus by registering their vehicles annually for $85. After registering, a parking permit will be issued to a student, and the sticker must be displayed on the driver's side of the rear window, where it is readily visible. A visitor can park in any regular parking space. Parking on Founder's Way in front of Melrose and Riley Halls is restricted to visitors and handicapped parking. Vehicles with three or more unpaid citations within a school year may not be parked in the Linfield Parking District, and will be towed if found on College property. If a vehicle is towed, it will not be released until the owner has paid all towing and storage fees, in addition to all outstanding fines.
