Some schools don't allow freshmen or freshman and sophomores depending on the school. Or they may allow fresh/soph to have cars but they make you park at annex lots that are usually several miles from campus or your dorm with very little security if any.

Personally if when the time comes and I was capable of buying my kid a brand new BMW they sure as hell won't be driving it to school to park in a school lot that is typically vandalism/door ding heaven.

Now some schools have nicer parking that you have to pay more for like a parking garage that is also security patrolled. It's usually junior/seniors only but they may offer it to younger classes at a higher rate. Ask some students when your on a visit. Or look around the neighbor hood, some people oddly enough rent out a garage spot/parking in their driveway at their house to students. This is usually at smaller schools in smaller cities.
