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.

Please note the schedule for 2024 MCV Campus permit sales:

  • Summer permits: May 15, 9 a.m.
  • Fall MCV Campus commuter permits: July 15, 9 a.m.

All permits will be virtual and linked directly to your license plate(s). That means no hangtag will be mailed. If you need help linking your permit, please review the instructions at

Instructions for participating in the lottery:

  1. Beginning at 9 a.m. on Monday, July 15, 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, July 18.
  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, July 22 with your award and a link to purchase your permit online on Tuesday, July 23, at 9 a.m
  3. Recipients have until Friday, July 26, at 4 p.m. to accept and purchase the awarded permit before it is forfeited.
