Parking Services

The University of Richmond’s Parking and Transportation Office strives to provide adequate, safe, convenient, and accessible parking for faculty, staff, students, and visitors to the University. To accomplish this, Parking Services will:

  • Continuously assess the parking needs of the campus community.
  • Create effective rules and regulations.
  • Collaborate with other departments to better serve the campus community.
  • Provide 24-hour police patrols of all parking lots.
Parking Facts
  • All cars, motorcycles, golf carts, and mopeds parked on the University of Richmond campus must be registered with Parking and Transportation and will be assigned a parking lot.
  • If a vehicle is parked on campus and is unregistered, it may receive parking citations and/or may be towed from campus.
  • All vehicles on campus must be properly licensed, inspected, and insured.
  • All persons operating a vehicle on campus must be properly licensed.
  • Family vehicles are the responsibility of the faculty/staff member or student when on campus. Make sure to obtain a temporary or visitor’s pass for all vehicles registered to your family when they are on campus.
  • Faculty, staff, and students are considered University community members at all times. Therefore, they are not considered visitors when on campus.
  • The regulations are applicable to all faculty, staff, students, and visitors to the University.
  • The University of Richmond accepts no responsibility for a vehicle or its contents while parked or operated on University grounds.

Vehicle Registration
  • All vehicles should be registered yearly, beginning in August of each academic year, and properly display a current parking permit by the first day of the fall semester or 24 hours after arriving on campus.
  • You may register your vehicle in person or online.
  • Vehicles are not considered registered until the pass or permit is correctly displayed on the vehicle.
  • Permits must be permanently affixed to the left side of the vehicle’s rear bumper or to the lower left side of the rear window. Do not use tape.
  • The annual registration fee will be charged to the student’s tuition account.
  • A person may register those vehicles for which they are the owner or primary driver.
  • Students may not register a vehicle owned or primarily operated by another student or another student’s family.
  • You may register as many vehicles as will be operated on campus during the school year, though only one vehicle may be on campus at a time.
  • Lost, stolen, or damaged permits will be replaced without charge.
  • Temporary parking passes are displayed by hanging the pass from the vehicle’s rear-view mirror.
  • If you drive a motorcycle, affix the permit where it can be easily seen.
