Parking at your new place can be challenging if you don't have an assigned parking spot. You may have to park on the street and finding a space can be tough. The Residential Parking Zone (RPZ) Program was created to help ease parking congestion in residential neighborhoods while walking a fine line to balance the needs of all people to be able to use the public streets.
Many areas around campus have "residential parking zones" (RPZs) that restrict on-street parking for non-residents. People who live in these zones are able to get permits to park on the street without restriction.
It is important to know the in's and out's of parking in your neighborhood. Check out the City of Seattle's information on Residential Parking Zones.
