MCV Campus Sale

VCU Parking and Transportation collaborated with the MCV Campus Assistant and Associate Dean’s Council to improve the MCV Campus student parking sale experience. As a result, the sale process resembles a lottery system for the fall/spring semesters and applies to commuter parking permits only.

The MCV Campus spring 2024 lottery sign-up will begin on Tues., Nov. 28.


How to participate in the spring 2024 lottery:

  1. Beginning at 9 a.m. on Tuesday, Nov. 28, all students interested in purchasing an MCV Campus commuter permit should log in to and select their parking preferences. The lottery will close at 4 p.m. on Thursday, Nov. 30.
  2. The system will assign a number to all applicants. If your number is selected via a random generator, you will receive an email notification on Monday, Dec. 4, with your award and a link to purchase your permit online on Tuesday, Dec. 5, at 9 a.m
  3. Recipients have until Friday, Dec. 8, at noon to accept and purchase the awarded permit before forfeiture. 
  4. Any unclaimed permits from the lottery will be sold online first-come, first-served at 9 a.m. on Monday, Dec. 11.

* Entering the permit lottery does not guarantee participants a parking permit.
