One of the many great amenities Oakland University has is free parking. Whether you are a freshman, a senior, or just a guest, parking doesn't cost a thing. But even if the lack of cost for parking is generous, the space for parking sometimes isn't. There are many places to park at Oakland University, but since Oakland is a commuter school, the spaces fill up fast. Before 11 a.m. and after 2:30 p.m., finding parking is not a problem. But if you arrive any time between those times, it is often difficult to find a parking space. You will always find a space at Oakland, but it may end up being a 10- to 15-minute walk to class, and in the winter, that can be tough.
The most popular place to park is in front of the Oakland Center because most of the buildings are situated around it. If you live in the dorms, parking is often hard to find because commuters often use parking intended for the dorms or apartments, and for that reason students sometimes park farther away and get ticketed because overnight parking is not allowed in some areas.
