Students find that parking anywhere in Charlottesville is pretty atrocious. There aren’t enough spaces for the number of cars that are on the road already, and the University population only gets bigger each year. Many students are incredibly frustrated with the steep price of a UVA permit that doesn’t even guarantee convenient parking. The rest of Charlottesville is not much better—sometimes finding street parking is easier and safer than trying to park in your own apartment’s lot! The parking enforcers are heartless and way too efficient. If you own a car in Charlottesville, then in all likelihood, you will have some sort of parking violation added to your record during your time at school.
Don’t even think about driving to class unless you want to pay $1.70 an hour in the bookstore parking garage. Use the bus system, or better yet, just walk. Almost everything is within walking distance anyway. Try to avoid parking illegally, even for just a few minutes, because the parking enforcers will be quick to nab you. Also, be aware that special events, such as football games or graduation, can cause traffic and parking problems throughout all of Charlottesville. If you have a car, it’s good to remember these dates and be prepared.
