A valid ODU parking permit or hourly parking payment via MobilePay is required to park at the VBHEC from 7AM-10PM Monday-Friday.

Parking at the VBHEC

The Virginia Beach Higher Education Center is home to one of Old Dominion University's satellite campuses. In order to park at the VBHEC you must have a valid ODU parking permit or hourly parking payment via MobilePay or pay station. All spaces can be utilized by a permit holder or as hourly parking except: ADA Accessible (without Valid DMV Issued Placard), Reserved, Carpool (before 2:00pm), and Restricted areas (such as Loading Zones).

Parking at the VBHEC is enforced 24/7 and ODU utilizes License Plate Recognition (LPR) and a virtual permit system where your license plate is your permit. Please log on to the ODU Parking Portal to purchase a permit and to add your vehicle(s) to your permit prior to parking on campus (this is an additional step). Norfolk campus permits are valid at this location.

Pay station and MobilePay options for hourly parking are also enforced using the LPR system. There is (1) pay station at the VBHEC and MobilePay can be accessed by scanning the QR Code or texting the PCode located on MobilePay signage. MobilePay also allows you to pay from your mobile device to extend your parking time should you need to do so.

If you have any questions about parking at the VBHEC, please call the office of Transportation & Parking Services (TPS) at 757-683-4004 or email any parking/transportation inquiries to parking@odu.edu. Please note- there is no Transportation & Parking Services Office at VBHEC.

Student Permits


As of Fall 2020, ODU Students may park at the VBHEC with any type of ODU Student Permit. Use the ODU Parking Portal to purchase a virtual permit and link your license plate to your permit prior to parking on campus.
