Parking & Transportation


As a downtown urban campus, VCU Parking and Transportation has always worked hard to ensure that we maintain an adequate parking inventory. We provide parking for over 7,000 students each semester.

In addition to hourly parking options at our visitor decks (West Broad Street Deck, West Main Street Deck, West Cary Street Deck, Eighth Street Deck), we also offer student parking at our subscriber decks and lots.

Parking is sold by the semester (Fall, Spring, Summer) and can be purchased online. Available permit types include: Commuter, Housing, Off-campus Housing, Evening and Summer.

* Beginning Fall 2017, VCU will employ a No Car Protocol for first-year residential students. View more information regarding the No Car Protocol.


All student parking purchases should be made online at Before making your purchase, please ensure that you have your VCU eID and vehicle information on hand. Once purchased, you will receive your RFID (Radio Frequency Identification) hangtag in the mail within 7-10 business days. You can print off your temporary permit and place on your dashboard until this permit arrives. Your VCUCard can be used to access the parking decks.

For any parking related concerns or questions, feel free to contact customer service online at or by calling 828-PARK (7275).
