There are about four or five parking lots from which to choose, but it is best to occupy a parking spot between 8:30 a.m. and 9 a.m. The best days are on Fridays, when the strict schedule of finding a parking spot lessens because students tend to schedule themselves to not have classes on Fridays.
In order to occupy a parking spot on campus, you will have to obtain a parking tag through Public Safety that costs $120, a fee that is added to your student account. There have been students that do not buy a parking tag, but they are usually caught and either given a warning first or a ticket. If a parking tag seems out of your reach, there is the option of taking the MetroLink to the Shrewsbury station with MetroBuses right there to take you to the campus. However, the buses are known to be late, and the fate of arriving on time or late to class might be a gamble.
