We all know parking sucks and of course they're constantly looking into ways to make it more affordable and better for all. The fact is, though, the school is growing. Band-aids aren't going to fix the problem but provide only a little relief. We need to move up! Into the sky! We are running out of space. Use an existing parking lot and turn it into 3, 4, or even 5 different parking lots!! And, if you do it in the right place, it won't obstruct anyone's lovely views of the mountains. We go to an engineering school. Let some of the civil students design it for a senior project! :)
A parking garage will not happen in the near future. There are more spots than there are passholders. Much of the parking just isn’t centralized, like Q lot and Ford lot, and people don’t want to walk from that far away. Even if a parking garage was going to go up it would be in one of these locations, so people would still have to walk from those ends of campus. Also it’s extremely expensive, thousands of dollars per spot, and the school does not have the money.
