Current Students: Parking Near Campus

<p>Hi. Im looking into transferring to Cal and I need to know about bringing my car to campus. I live in Southern CA so it would really just be easiest for me to bring my car with me, but I see that you cant get a parking permit unless you live more than 2 miles outside the campus. I hope to live in Channing Bowditch (which I dont think qualifies) or a Unit, which I know doesnt qualify. Is there any way for me to get a parking permit? Maybe some sort of storage parking that I would have to take a bus to or something? I just want my car, it doesnt have to be close to me all the time.</p>

<p>how about for freshman students who are dorming....will we have parking if we bring our cars?</p>

<p>They say you don't really need your car.</p>

<p>Well, yeah, but I will. I plan on leaving alot on the weekends, and it wont be within reach of BART. So, anyone?</p>

<p>easymack, did you try contacting the staff at Channing Bowditch for advice? There may be current CB residents with a car.</p>

<p>Also, did you see the following statement on the Parking & Transportation site:</p>

<p>Storage Parking at a University Storage Lot
Students living in the residence halls who do not qualify for a parking space may apply to Parking & Transportation for a storage lot parking space. These spaces are limited and are assigned on a first-come / first-served basis. Storage lot parking costs $23 a month. Applications for residence hall and storage lot parking are mailed to students with the “Terms and Conditions of Residence.”

<p>parking.... parking? parking???</p>


<p>no seriously, unless you plan on getting a few tickets a day, or have a garage that you can get a permit for, or have a friend in berkeley that you can hold the car in his/her garage, then don't plan on parking.</p>

<p>i have a car here. i can park it at my house, my frat, my friends house, and in oakland.</p>
