This permit is available for students living off campus and in the Oak Lane Community.

This permit allows parking in the commuter side of the Duck Pond Road Lot (nearest the Vet–Med School at the west end of Washington Street), the Commuter section of Litton Reaves Lot (Wallace/Litton Reaves), the Track/Field House Lot, the Duck Pond Lot beyond the golf course at the end of the Duck Pond, and Oak Lane lots. Commuter permit holders may also park in designated portions of the Coliseum Lot, except at specific times, including before home football and basketball games.

Graduate

This permit is available for graduate students living off campus, in Main Campbell, Payne, or in the Oak Lane Community.

This permit allows parking in all areas listed in all designated commuter sections. 

The Litton Reeves parking lot and the Graduate Life Center will have some reserved spaces labled Graduate only. 

All Students

If a student's status changes to faculty/staff before the expiration date on the permit, the student permit must be exchanged for a Faculty/Staff permit within five (5) working days. Students employed in wage positions over the summer at Virginia Tech and who are enrolled in summer classes or returning fall semester, are not eligible to purchase a Faculty/Staff permit.

If a student's status changes from resident to commuter or vice versa, the parking permit must be exchanged for the appropriate permit within five (5) working days. Students displaying incorrect permits will receive a $150 unauthorized use fine.

A few lots are restricted for faculty/staff 24 hours a day, seven days a week. These include the Owens and Dietrick Dining Hall Lots, the basketball practice facility, and basketball extension lot.

Faculty/Staff

The F/S permit allows parking in any legal parking area on campus. This includes Faculty/Staff, Commuter, Graduate, and Resident parking areas. Parking is not allowed in areas restricted by signs such as visitor spaces, service vehicle areas, carpool spaces, admissions areas, the right side of the Squires Lot, etc.

If F/S changes to student status before the expiration date on the permit, the F/S permit must be exchanged for a student permit within five (5) working days. Failure to do so will result in a $150 unauthorized use fine.

First time new employees and employees with a signigicant break in service are eligible for a new employee permit, valid the first 30 days of employment. 

Employees with 30 years of service become eligible for a free F/S permit in their anniversary month. For more information, contact the Department of Human Resources at 540–231–9331.

All Access

Vice presidents, deans, and equivalents are eligible to purchase an All Access (AA) permit. The university recognizes through the AA permit that these senior administrators require frequent travel campus-wide for attendance at meetings events, and site visits. The AA permit is double the annual F/S permit rate.  For information on the AA permit, please contact Parking Services at parking@vt.edu or 540–231–3200.
