Student Parking

All parking on campus requires a valid ODU parking permit or hourly parking payment.

Welcome back to campus! Remember, ALL students parking on campus must use a valid ODU permit or hourly parking payment and only park in the areas designated by their permit type.

We encourage you to purchase your permit online in the ODU Parking Portal. You can also buy one at the Transportation and Parking Services (TPS) Office at 4310 Elkhorn Ave (attached to the 43rd & Elkhorn Garage). Please remember your face mask if you visit us!

ODU has a virtual permit system that uses License Plate Recognition to enforce permit usage. Please make sure to properly link your vehicle to your permit before parking on campus.

ODU Parking Regulations are strictly enforced on campus, so please always use your permit correctly to avoid getting ticketed, booted, or towed. You can always refer to the Campus Transportation Map for parking garage and lot locations, and contact us if you have any questions!
