Regent University Parking Services
Parking Services works with Regent University Police Department (RUPD) to enforce parking rules and regulations. If you have questions about parking permits and our policies and procedures, don’t hesitate to contact 757.352.4927 or email@example.com.
Parking Permits & Passes
Regent University is private property; therefore, you must receive authorization from Parking Services to park on campus. Vehicles are only allowed to park in designated parking places. Parking decals are sent via interoffice mail to staff and faculty, via regular mail to students, or can be picked up in person at Parking Services during business hours at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Please select the applicable parking permit or pass below.
All Regent University faculty, staff and students are required to register their vehicles and motorcycles with Parking Services. Parking decals remain valid throughout enrollment at or employment by Regent University.
For convenience, a Reserved Parking Permit is available to full or part-time regular faculty and staff on a first-come, first-served basis for a cost. The reserved spots are enforced Monday-Friday between 6 a.m.-6 p.m.
Parking Services reserves the right to make all reserved parking spots available to the Regent community in the case of a large event on campus.
Available payment options include:
- Lump sum payable at the start of the academic year (cash, check or payroll deduction*)
- Monthly payroll deduction
Payroll authorization remains in effect until written cancellation is submitted by the 15th day of the month before the desired termination month. For those who split the purchase of a reserved parking space, fees will be adjusted based on each person’s salary. *Part-time employees are not eligible for payroll deductions and should submit payment to the Business Office by July 31 each year.
|Annual Salary||Monthly Fee|
|$40,000 and below||$25|
|$80,001 and above||$50|
Note: Parking spaces may be sub-assigned at the space owner’s discretion if the space owner does not charge another employee for its use. Space holders who arrive on campus to find an unauthorized vehicle in their parking space during enforcement hours should contact Parking Services immediately at 757.352.4927.
A Temporary Parking Pass is issued to students, faculty and staff for a vehicle used for a short-term exceeding three days (e.g., rental cars, residency). Applications must be filled out at least three days in advance to allow processing time. On-campus guests do not need a temporary parking permit. Parking Services reserves the right to deny applications for any reason.
Special guest/event parking is available for Regent University’s hosted events and guests (e.g., chapel speakers, visiting professors, presenters). Guests must abide by the General Campus Parking Policies & Procedures. The sponsoring school or department is responsible for their guests being aware of and following these guidelines. For approved requests, reserved signs on priority parking spots will be issued with guests’ or events’ names on them.
Lot availability includes the following:
- ADM/LIB (Administration Building/Library – 2 available)
- CHAP/DIV (Chapel/Divinity Building – 5 available)
- CRB (Classroom Building – 1 available)
- LIB LD (Library Loading Dock – 2 available) – only available for event set-up and deliveries
- RH (Robertson Hall – 12 available)
Due to the type of requests, Parking Services requires a minimum of two business days advance notice. Parking requests may not be honored without proper notice to Parking Services.
Vehicles may be left on campus overnight, on weekends, and for the duration of out-of-town travel with prior approval of Parking Services and Campus Police. All university patrons’ overnight parking needs must be registered with Parking Services for safety and security. Vehicles left on campus overnight without permission or Regent parking decals may be subject to ticketing or towing at Owner’s expense.
Vehicle owners requesting to leave their vehicle parked on campus overnight must meet the following criteria:
- Owner must be a faculty member, staff member, or campus housing student
- Vehicle must be registered with Regent University’s Parking Services
- Vehicle must have a Regent University Parking Decal displayed on their windshield
- Application for overnight/extended parking must be submitted three business days before the date the vehicle will be left
Please allow up to three business days for a decision to be reached and a response to be given. Should the request be approved, the vehicle must be parked in the lot specified in the approved request and parked as far away from the building as possible, under a light pole.
If the dates need to be extended for any reason, email email@example.com as soon as possible to avoid any repercussions. Should a violation be issued while a vehicle is parked on campus after being approved by Parking Services and Campus Police, a Violation Appeal Form may be submitted within seven days of ticket issuance. Parking Services and Campus Police will review the Appeal Form and promptly notify the vehicle owner of its response. All decisions are final.
The Communication Parking Lot (Lot L) is designated for visitor parking. Visitors are also able to park in 1-Hour parking located in Lot O and directly behind Building #5 (Student Center). All campus visitors parking elsewhere on campus must have a parking permit. Temporary parking hangtags are available at Parking Services. Passes may also be obtained by completing the Temporary Parking Application. If approved, a place card will be given to be displayed during the duration of the reservation.
Policies & Procedures
All Regent University faculty, staff and students are required to register their vehicles and motorcycles with Parking Services. To do so, submit a General Campus Parking Application.
Parking decals will be sent by interoffice mail or mail to faculty/staff and students, respectively. Students can also pick up decals after submitting requests in the Student Services office (Room SC 201) between 8 a.m.-5 p.m., Monday-Friday, barring closure for University Chapel on Wednesdays from 12-1 p.m. Decals must be placed inside the windshield behind the rearview mirror out of the line of sight. Stickers are nontransferable.
Under certain circumstances, parking designations may change. The changes will be communicated through announcements and email. Regent University reserves the right to close a campus parking area temporarily.
Note: Posted signs replace any listed designation or map.
Parking Services reserves the right to tow your vehicle if your vehicle is parked in an undesignated area, regardless of whether you have previously received a ticket.
The consequences of an offense may involve a ticket, wheel clamp or tow. If a car is towed, the violator is responsible for the cost and the university violation fee. If you receive a clamp on your wheel or your vehicle is towed, call Campus Police at 757.226.2075.
Parking violations are $50 for first-time offenders and $75 for second-time offenders. Parking in a disabled spot without proper clearance will result in a $150 fine. All fines must be paid to the cashier in the University Business Office within 30 days of the violation. If not paid within the designated time, the parking violation will increase by $25. For students who violate the policy, the fine will be applied to their student account.
After a parking violation has been served, any further violation will result in other action (such as a ticket, wheel clamp or tow). Regent University reserves the right to revoke parking privileges from any faculty, staff or students who violate this policy and put a wheel clamp on or tow your vehicle if it is parked in an undesignated area, regardless of whether you have previously received a ticket or not.
A violation appeal must be submitted within seven days of receiving a ticket.
All students residing in university housing who wish to have their vehicle on campus must have a Regent University parking decal adequately placed in their vehicles. Parking in handicapped spaces without the proper decal is prohibited. The parking lot is for vehicles, motorcycles and mopeds. Inoperable vehicles or vehicles with expired registrations are not to be parked on the property and will be towed at the student’s expense.
Temporary parking permits for guests can be obtained in the Office of Residence Life during regular business hours. For questions, call 757.352.4890.
Other important rules to observe:
- The speed limit in residential area parking lots is 15 mph.
- Driving on the grass or sidewalks is prohibited in campus housing and will result in a $100 fine for each offense.
- Truck and trailer loading ramps must not touch grassed areas. (This rule has no exceptions, and violators will have their vehicles towed at their expense.)
- Washing cars in Regent parking lots is prohibited.
The Communication Parking Lot (Lot L) is designated for visitor parking. Visitors can also park in 1-Hour parking located in Lot O and directly behind Building #5 (Student Center).

Every effort should be made to secure all vehicles and belongings on campus. Regent University, CBN and Founders Inn are not responsible for theft or damage to vehicles parked on the property or due to towing or clamping. Theft and damage reports should be made to Campus Police at 757.226.2075.
