Student Options & Rates

Students are welcome to purchase their semester parking through the online portal. We offer a number of available parking options for students on the Monroe Park and MCV campuses. Please note, parking options vary by space availability and parking is sold on a first come, first served basis.  All permits do offer reciprocal parking privileges. You may learn more about our reciprocal parking privileges on the "Student Reciprocal Parking" page.

Student Permit Types

Commuter Permit
Evening Permit
Housing permit


Permit not right for you? In the event a VCU parking permit does not meet your needs, daily/hourly parking is available at several of our locations. View additional information on our Parking Locations page. 


Note: You must be registered for classes prior to purchasing a parking permit.


How to Purchase Parking

  1. All student parking purchases should be made online. Before purchasing, make sure you view the Monroe Park Campus & MCV Campus options first.
  2. Before making your purchase, you will need to have your VCU eID and vehicle information on hand, be registered for classes for the current semester in advance of the parking sale and have no outstanding parking citations. Additionally, a permanent address should be on file in Banner.
  3. Log in to the parking portal by clicking on the "Manage my Account" button in the top right hand corner of this page. You will be prompted to enter your VCU credentials.
  4. Select "Get Permits." A list of qualifying parking options will populate. Parking is sold on a first come, first served basis, so some facilities may not be available at the time of your purchase.
  5. Add the selected permit to your cart, and follow the prompts for payment. You will receive an electronic receipt and temporary permit with barcode. You may place this temporary permit on your dashboard until your hangtag arrives, or, if parking in a deck, you can simply use your VCUCard to enter your facility.
  6. Once purchased, you will receive your RFID (Radio Frequency Identification) hangtag in the mail within 7 to 10 business days. In the event you do not receive your permit by this time, contact customer service at 828-PARK (7275).
  7. For any parking related concerns or questions, feel free to contact customer service by calling 828-PARK.
