Parking and Traffic

I do not have a campus parking decal. Where can I get a temporary parking pass?

Parking passes may be obtained at the Parking Services Office in Garage A at the corner of 43rd Street and Elkhorn Avenue. Parking passes are not normally required after 9PM or on weekends or holidays. Visitors should not park in lots designated for Faculty and Staff or in spaces marked with a blue "RESERVED" sign at any time. Unauthorized parking in reserved spaces will result in the vehicle being towed.

I plan to attend a special event on campus. Where can I park?

Parking Services normally designates specific areas for Special Event parking (i.e. basketball games, concerts, lectures, etc.). Signs are generally posted directing visitors to these parking areas. For additional information about special event parking, call 757-683-4004.

I received a parking ticket while parked on campus. Where do I pay the fine or file an appeal?

Questions about parking tickets, fines and the appeal process should be directed to the Parking Services Office, which is located in the Parking Garage at 43rd Street and Elkhorn Avenue, or by calling 757-683-4004.

I received a traffic summons. What do I do?

Normally, the officer issuing the summons will advise you of the steps to take to pay the fine or when to appear in court. On each summons, you will find the telephone number and address of the court where you are to appear. University Police Officers diligently enforce Virginia Motor Vehicle Laws due to the quantity of pedestrian traffic on the campus. Please drive safely.

My car has been towed from a campus parking lot. Where can I get information about retrieving it?

Information about vehicles towed from campus lots can be obtained by contacting Parking Services, either in person in Garage A at 43rd Street and Elkhorn Avenue or by calling 757-683-4004. After business hours, you may contact the Police Department at 757-683-4000.

I believe my car has been towed from an off-campus location. Where can I get information about retrieving it?

For information about vehicles that have been towed from off-campus locations, contact Norfolk Police Department at 757-664-7038.
