Ahhh the uni problems. I decided to move closer to uni so I could walk 15 minutes. Even with the parking label, there was no guarantee that one would get parking. Some days would have visitors, on others there would be too many students. The buses were notorious for never being on time and the peak hour rush in those buses was horrible. Your life sucks man.
I really hope you accidentally added some extra zeros in there, because those prices are just insane.
That's crazy! My parking pass as a commuter student was $180/semester (but I had access only to one lot), and you could get a city bus pass through the school for free. Are you attending a private university in a big city or something?
Yep, $100 and ride the bike, especially since its almost 'Real' spring (depending on where you are). The other option is what a lot of my friends did, was knock on homes nearby the school and offer them cash to park in their driveway during school hours. May want to sign a simple contract with them so they don't say yes, take the cash and call a tow. One of the homes my friend parked at was thankful as it made it look like they had someone home during the day as they worked late! Who knows, doesn't hurt to try!
In my university we had a bus pass, but you could also buy single tickets for like £1.5 or 10 for £10. If that's a possibility, work out how many days you have to be in and whether that would be cheaper. This does mean that if you have like a 3-hour break you're probably stuck on campus, cause you won't want to pay double. if the bus connection isn't too bad (as in if you miss one, there will be another shortly) and driving there would take like 30 minutes anyway (+ find parking spot), I'd probs go with the bus pass.
