You will park in E3 which is up near Stacwyck
What parking lot is designated for RAHPs B students?
You need to get an E3 permit for $125. This is the permit for RAHPs B and allows you to park right in front of the RAHPs B apartments.
Are there any exceptions to the requirement that freshman live on campus, such as a student living at home with her parents and commuting to school? If yes, what is the parking situation like? Thanks.
As part of the CLASS initiative, all freshmen must live on campus at RPI. I believe circumstances need to be pretty extreme for students to bypass this. I would recommending emailing ResLife to get their official opinion on your particular situation.
Parking on campus requires a parking permit and freshmen are technically are not allowed to have a permit. Once again, if you need a car for a particular reason, check with RPI transportation/parking.
