Hi all,

I was just accepted to NUMS, which I am very excited about. But I have one question: Does anybody know the deal with commuter parking permits for students?

I live in Chicago, about seven miles away from NU's downtown campus. I would love to be able to drive to and from school if possible. According to the NU website, there is some commuter parking reserved for students, faculty, and staff on the downtown campus. Are med students included in the permit pool?

I'm a longtime Chicago resident so I know that 1) Parking downtown is expensive; 2) that the school isn't that far from the el. However, I've been commuting downtown by el every day for six years, and I'm pretty sick of it.

Thanks in advance!

Congratulations on your acceptance! Parking permits are available to any student living more than a mile from the medical school, so you would certainly qualify.

the details of obtaining a parking permit are on the following site.
http://www.univsvcs.northwestern.edu/Parking/faq_p.html


as long live outside a two-mile radius from campus (Fullerton on the North, Roosevelt on the South, Ashland on the West and Lake Michigan on the East.) you will be able to get a permit

cost:
Annual Rate: $375
School Year Rate: $297
Quarterly Rate: $120

congrats on NU!

That is an unbelievable steal. $31.25/month--in the heart of Chicago--for unlimited privileges in a parking garage no more than 2 blocks from school.
