Traffic & Parking Guidelines
For the protection of Virginia Union University students, faculty, and staff, no parking is allowed at anytime, anywhere on campus, without a valid Virginia Union University registration permit, except by approved visitors or spaces otherwise designated for visitors. Parking permits/decals are available for spring semester (September 2020 - May 2021). Parking restrictions may change throughout the year due to space availability, construction, or access; however, permit/decal subscribers will be notified (via email, and social media,) in the event of such changes.
Each parking subscriber will be issued (one) parking permit/decal and may only have (one) vehicle parked on the VUU property. A parking permit/decal guarantees spaces for Premium and Reserved spaces only. The inability to find a legal parking space within a particular lot is not valid reason for parking in violation of any parking regulations. Parking is on a first come/first serve basis.
Faculty, staff, students and visitors are required to register a vehicle that will be parked on campus. Parking permits or passes may be requested by completing and submitting an online vehicle registration form and are not transferable from person to person. Each parking subscriber will be issued (one) parking permit/decal and may have only (one) vehicle parked on VUU property. We will be enforcing the requirement for all registered students to register their vehicles if they wish to drive on campus.
Steps to Accessing Parking Passes/Decals
After completing the Online Parking Permit Form, Parking permit procedures will be emailed once the permit has been assigned. Notifications for pick up will be conducted by phone and email to confirm assigned permit/hang tag. Assigned permits will be available for pick up at Pickford Hall from Campus Police, during business hours, Monday-Friday from 9:00 a.m. until 5:00 p.m.
