I feel compelled to take action against the university - which I feel is not considering their students as they are recently released plans to hike the parking fees…

Parking on the university has always been a struggle as spaces for both students and staff has been on a first come first serve basis which was an easy pill to swallow. As everyone could justify that since daytime parking passes 6am-6pm (Monday through Friday) are free leaving students to take advantage of the opportunity to seek out spaces near the library, Starbucks, and other popular study spaces on the weekend especially. Nighttime parking at StFX required students to pay $250 for the opportunity to park over night (used mainly by staff and residence students). 
All students have recently received an email stating that they will now be hiking the price to park on campus during the work week days from originally the price of $0-250 which is an extremely big price jump and is unrealistic for student to fork out per year to park their vehicle at the school they pay to go to (especially when they aren’t guaranteed a spot to begin with)… they have now also introduced a $10 single day parking fee that is expected to be used by students, and locals on the weekend who want to take advantage of the numerous study spaces; gym, pool, and rink. I think it is significant that we acknowledge the fact that we as students, are dealing with the impacts of COVID-19 which unequivocally drastically affected many people’s day to day lives including financial constraints that do not allow for these extra costs as we as students are all billed; facilities renewal fee, health and wellness expansion, information and technology fee, recreational facilities fee, and student assistance program fee - besides tuition. 
Therefore it is my believe that Stfx should either go back to their old parking pass fees or comprise with students and staff and lower them.
