parking is so expensive it's not worth it if you're only going to use it to drive home during breaks. if you buy your plane tickets far enough in advance it should be cheap. otherwise have your parents drive you to and from campus.
That's what my family and I were thinking, but we wanted other input as well. Thank you.

Students overwhelmingly agree that parking at UW is awful. Whether you're on the streets or in a ramp, finding a spot to leave your car can be frustrating. Students who need a car on campus usually decide to buy a permit. However, your reserved parking spot may be a few blocks away and at a high price. Parking only gets worse during athletic event weekends or on concert nights. Students are rarely able to find a spot during these times. As a result, many students opt to use mopeds rather than cars when traveling about campus.
While the city offers three ramps near campus, it isn't enough to convince students to bring a car to campus. The majority of the time, parking becomes more of a headache than it's worth. Mopeds are more popular because the school is more accommodating to them. Almost every academic building has areas sectioned off for mopeds to park. UW also offers a campus shuttle for those needing to get farther on campus. Overall, students should really take advantage of the various transportation options before deciding to bring a car to UW.
