You can bring a car, but nine times out of ten, you are not going to be happy. Everyone is allowed parking at NAU. The permits are very easy to obtain and, even though they are ridiculously expensive for what you get, you need them to park anywhere. Your specific permit only allows you to park in certain designated areas on campus. For example, you live on Central Campus and have a central resident permit but want to drive to South Campus to get to a class. Sounds good, right? Nope, too bad. If it’s before 4:30 p.m. (when all of the lots become available), you will be ticketed by Parking Services. The parking areas are heavily enforced and the amount of money collected from students who park in the wrong areas is outrageous.
The campus is pretty big, but the surrounding area is close enough to walk, so bringing a car is not really necessary. Sure, it makes exploring the city a bit easier, but it isn't always worth it. Bringing a car really comes down to your desire to work at a place off campus, how far away you live from campus if you live off campus, and how many road trips you plan to take. If you have good answers for those or you want a job somewhere off campus, bring a car, but be prepared for at least a few massive headaches caused by Parking Services during your time at NAU.
