• Approximately 85% of the parking is considered non-reserved, which allows persons to drive from parking lot to parking lot. This causes unnecessary traffic and congestions during class changes and peak periods.
• There are no parking structures on campus or in the immediate vicinity. All parking is surface lot.
• There is approximately 40 acres of parking on the main campus, which accounts for approximately 15% of the campus. Parking, like at most campuses across the country, is a very complicated and sensitive issues. Regardless of the number and location of spaces throughout the property, everyone seems to want more. Parking is a demand driven commodity that in many cases, drives the success of the environment. The issue that faces UNC is the fact that its not the amount, but the location of much of the parking. This is especially true at the Central Campus.
