Jessica Smith started this petition to Oxford College Administration

Over the summer, an entirely new parking lot was built beside Fleming parking lot. Upon arriving to campus, it was made clear that the new lot was for visitor use rather than student use. We were disgruntled, but we complied. However, upon returning from winter break, we were shocked to find that the entire back row of Fleming lot had also been converted to visitor parking despite the mostly-empty new visitor lot. There are not many remaining parking spots available for student use near Fleming, Murdy, and Elizer, which is nowhere near enough for the amount of students living in East Village. Each student pays $150 per semester for a parking pass, so the lack of close parking available is very frustrating. It doesn’t help that the next nearest lot is on the other side of campus and can be particularly dark at night, creating safety concerns for some students.

The SGA recently wrote a resolution asking the administration to allow students to park in the visitor lot on days when there aren’t many visitors expected. We would give up the spots on days with many visitors - i.e. Admitted Student days, Orientation days, or holidays such as Winter Break and Spring Break, etc. - but we would be allowed to park there otherwise.

This petition was created to show the administration how much the student body wants a change to the parking available near East Village. The current parking situation is not okay, and something needs to be done. Please sign this petition if you believe a change is needed and share it with as many people as you can. Thank you.
