We are excited that you are now a part of our on-campus community at Regent! You’ll enjoy the friendly atmosphere of our small, close-knit campus. Students just like you are excited to meet you and welcome you to your new home. We’ve provided the checklist below to make sure your transition into a Regent student goes as smoothly as possible.
As a residential student, there are a few things to take care of before your semester begins:
Student ID cards – Your student ID gives you personal access to campus buildings, library resources and University events. Your ID also acts as a key to receive additional student discounts both on-campus and at many local businesses. Student ID cards can be obtained from our Student Services office located on the second floor of our Student Center. Please bring a valid picture ID (driver’s license or passport).
Parking Decal - Students are allowed to park on campus (in any regular, non-reserved space) as long as a Regent parking sticker is clearly displayed. To obtain your sticker, you need to register your vehicle by filling out a Parking Sticker Application, which can be done in-person in our Student Services office located on the second floor of our Student Center. There is a $100 charge per academic year for students who enroll in three or more on-campus credit hours during the academic year. Please familiarize yourself with our Parking Policy & Procedures for details about student parking locations and shuttle services.
Housing - Freshmen who plan to study on campus and are 22 years old or younger are expected to live on campus. A separate housing application is required and must be submitted to the Housing Office. To learn more about housing options, rates and application deadlines, visit our website at www.regent.edu/housing .
Meal Plan – Residents in Student Housing can purchase meal cards at the Regent Ordinary, which is located on the first floor of our Student Center. Meal cards provide 13 full meals for $75. Take a peek at our weekly menu .
Health Insurance – All students who take six credit hours or more on the Virginia Beach campus are required to have health insurance. Many students are covered under their parent’s or spouse’s insurance plan, but Regent has also partnered with Aetna Student Health to provide this coverage. Our current student health insurance rates and coverage details are available online . Because this coverage is mandatory, insurance fees appear on your tuition bill for the fall and spring semester unless a waiver form is completed and proof of comparable coverage is provided.
