Carpool Parking Spaces

Carpooling is an environmentally and economically sustainable form of transportation. The University of Richmond is offering carpool spaces in order to reduce the demand for parking spaces on campus.

This service is designated for existing permit holders and defines carpooling as a formal commitment to regular travel in a group of two or more. Carpool spaces will be added or removed from parking lots as warranted by need and regular use. Carpool spaces are open to faculty/staff members and commuting students. If you would like information on registering as a UR Carpool network, contact Parking Services at (804) 289-8703.

 Enforcement of Carpool Parking Spaces

  • Vehicles registered to a carpool network will be issued a carpool parking permit. If both or all vehicles registered to the carpool are found on campus for more than two days a week for more than two weeks in a month, the reserved carpool space will be removed.
  • Carpool spaces are reserved 24 hours a day, 7 days a week for registered carpool vehicles.
