Getting a parking permit was very much a struggle. My first two quarters I was granted a parking permit. My Spring quarter I did not. I had to pay to park. It was 12 dollars a day. I would come to school early to get parking. During this time, you would input your parking space number and it would be printed out. Whenever I left, and another student came to take my spot, I would give them my ticket. Pretty much everybody did this, the students were fed up with UCLA's policy. But the school was hip to it, by the following fall, it became place your license plate number down, they did that so students wouldn't give their daily parking passes for free.
My last few quarters, I was given parking parking twice but I had to appeal to get one and by some miracle they gave it to me. One of the quarter's,I had to do pay to park again. It could get expense, I only came to school twice a week, so it somewhat balanced out with paying the parking permit, which is 250. However, if you came to school 4 or 5 times a week, you're paying 50-60 dollars a week, not to mention, there is no guarantee there will be any parking when you get to school. Only a certain amount of spots are designated to pay to park. If you can't find parking on campus, you had to go find parking in Westwood Village and good luck with that.I knew plenty of people who missed class because they spent over an hour looking for parking. Some even got fed up and just wenr home out of frustration.
If UCLA has one MAJOR flaw, it is the parking services. One quarter, they even gave away too many parking permits, which meant there was not enough spaces available. It was an absolute nightmare. We paid for our permits and now there was not enough spots? It took them a few weeks to resolve the issue.
