“Parking”—the word alone causes many Aggie students to frown. The garages are old, parking is hard to find or it’s too far away, and it’s too expensive. Prices for permanent parking can run from $275 to more than $400 per semester. And if you plan to park in the visitor parking, be aware that it’s $2 an hour before 6 p.m., which would comes out to be just as expensive as a permit if you parked there every day.
Basically, regardless of the price, if you plan on bringing a car, you're better off buying a permit to avoid getting tickets—and A&M is good at giving out tickets. Don't even think about leaving your car unattended in the wrong place for even a minute because you'll find a little surprise waiting for you on your windshield with a fine. And although there are many garages and lots on campus, your permit only allows you to park in one specific garage or lot. In fact, many students say that it’s best to just leave your car at home because it’s not feasible to drive to class—you're better off with a bike, taking the bus, or carpooling with someone. The only time you'll use your car is if you need to get off campus. So, if you can, just leave your car at home, unless you really need it.
