How Do You Park at JSU?

For almost every student, teacher or employee at Jacksonville State University, there's a vehicle looking for a parking space. It doesn't take a math major, then, to figure out that 10,000 vehicles — permits for some 9,000 students and 1,000 faculty and staff — might lead to asphalt gridlock on campus.

Campus parking is a constant conversation. Students complain that it causes them to be late for class; staff say there isn't enough. The parking question even has affected class scheduling.

“We spread class schedules through the day to leave time for students to get to class and prevent a parking logjam,” said Rebecca Turner, vice president of student and academic affairs.

As permit registration approaches on Aug. 1, the annual discussion of parking shortages — or not — crops up again.
