Some say the answer to all of SLC’s parking problems arrived with the construction of Kober parking lot, a two-story cement structure located on the far corner of campus. In addition to providing dozens of spaces for student cars, Kober is weather-protected and monitored with security cameras. Hence, if you’re willing to pay, keeping a car on campus is easy. Students who keep cars do complain that the walk from main campus to Kober can be strenuous (especially if you’re lugging an armload of books). Additionally, because Kober is isolated from main campus, it has been occasionally preyed upon by thieves, and it’s a good idea to park under a lamp near the entrance and to not leave your valuables in plain sight.
Parking anywhere else on campus will give you a headache, especially when you’re moving in and out of your dorm and need to park as close to your building as possible. Your best bet is to make the move early in the morning or late at night. Overall, cars aren’t necessary, and not many students have them on campus. Anything you might need to buy is within walking distance, and if by some chance it isn’t, then the train to NYC is just around the corner.
