Q. Who can park in the Convocation Center Garage?
A. Anyone with a valid ODU parking decal can park in the Convocation Center garage. However, when there is an event at the Convocation Center the garage will close or become “exit only” after a certain hour.

Q. Where do I park if there is an event at the Convocation Center?
A. If you are not attending the event you can park in the parking area authorized by your ODU parking decal. For example: if you have a commuter decal you can park in a commuter lot or an overflow lot.

Q. Why is parking lot 40 closing?
A. Parking lot 40, located on 43rd Street between the library and the parking garage, is being replaced by a new 650 space-parking garage.

Q. How long before the new garage is ready for use?
A. The lot will close for good in September and the new garage should be ready for use in Fall 2005.

Q. Will piles have to be driven into the ground for construction of the new garage?
A. Yes. The old asphalt will be stripped, light poles removed and piles will be driven. There will be noise due the construction, but it will be temporary.

Q. Why is 46th Street closed between Hampton and Monarch Way?
A. 46th Street is the staging area for the Technology Building renovation and will remain closed for about one and a half years.

Q. Who controls the parking meters on Monarch Way?
A. The city of Norfolk Parking Office.

Q. Who can ride the campus shuttle?
A. All student, faculty, staff, and visitors to the University can ride the shuttle. The shuttle operates from 7:30 a.m. to midnight (last run starts at 11:30 p.m.) Monday through Thursday and 7:30 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Friday.

Q. I have a commuter decal and cannot find a place to park, what should I do?
A. We suggest that you consult the parking brochure to locate and park in one of the perimeter lots and catch the ODU shuttle to your destination. A reminder that the highest demand time for parking is from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.

Q. Can I park in front of the new Engineering and Computational Sciences building, put my flashers on and go in the building?
