Leonard Sandridge has made it official: first-years at UVa will no longer be permitted to park their cars on grounds beginning next fall. Under the current system, first-years are permitted to have vehicles during the spring semester, but not in the fall. On average, 550 of the 3,000 first-years get parking permits in the spring. The change was prompted in no small part by the loss of 475 parking spaces this coming spring, a result of the construction of the new basketball arena. Alexis Unkovic has the story in today’s Cavalier Daily.
