The Canberra Times is carrying an epic whinge by one Gillian Crick who is cheesed off at the parking provided by ANU for part-time students.
This is hardly surprising or new. It’s an ancient right of non-driving full time students to sell their parking permit to Civic workers for beer money.
And many years ago in a lucid moment I came across a quote on a door at ANU which said, as far as I can recall: “a university is a collection of disparate buildings united by a common lack of parking space”.
Is ANU’s parking for part-timers worse than anywhere else? Seeing as it’s forced Gillian into full time study is that actually an intended result? Or should they make it a little easier for the part-timers?
