I would think that there is little need for a car since most of life will be lived in the campus area. Is there any reason to bring a car? I live 3 hours away from uiuc and would want to come home like once a month.
I would not want to need a car and not have one when I own two and need to either bring one with me to UIUC or sell it since my parents wont let me leave both.
I imagine if you are in a dorm you park outside exposed to the elements.
I also believe the cost is $168 per semester to park.
