Universities in some way resemble big cities. In some way, the universities have many facilities that range from athletic facilities; hospitals, museums, libraries, offices, stores, and the main part are the classes. The transportation problems that are normally associated with the big cities are also present in universities. In other words, most universities do not offer parking facilities that are adequate as this is not their priority. Universities need to provide convenient parking for their students because it will attract them to spend more time on campus to participate in campus activities.
For any individual, the presence of a convenient parking space is a green light to spend more time in the area. This is because there are more pros than cons in the availability of a convenient parking space. When students are provided with ample parking space, they do not have to leave school in order to find their parking. The parking space also ensures that the students are in a position to spend most of their time engaging in schooling activities as they do not have to worry about going for long distances to find their cars in the place that they had parked them. Additionally, a convenient parking space gives the student a degree of security of their cars as they are in a position to access them and confirm that they are secure.
The provision of a convenient parking space is, on the other hand, had some cons. In order for the university to provide a convenient parking, the space has to be in the vicinity of the university. If the university has a lot of students, then a large space is taken by the parking space. The space can be used for other infrastructure that could be of higher value than the parking space. Since the school has the sole responsibility of giving the students the first responsibility, the student’s activities are of higher importance and should take a higher priority. The pros of having a convenient parking space outweigh the cons of not having one.
In conclusion, Universities need to provide convenient parking for their students because it will attract them to spend more time on campus to participate in campus activities. This is because the pros of having a convenient parking space outweigh the cons of not having one.
