Parking Reservations for Events

Parking and Transportation's Event Operations Division is here to help make your event a success. We offer a range of services to provide parking options for your event visitors. To make a reservation, please contact our Special Events Coordinator at 434-989-3306 or via e-mail.

Available Services


Event Signs

Upon request, we can provide event specific signage to help your visitors find parking and to help alert permit parkers to vacate the lot in anticipation of your event. Signs will be posted up to twenty-four hours in advance. Please contact us for rates.

Enforcement Officers

Enforcement Officers are available to ensure all of the spaces you reserved are ready and available to your guests when they arrive. We highly recommend that you include Enforcement Officers in your event parking reservation. The officer(s) will arrive one hour prior to your event start time to ensure they have enough time to respond to any illegally parked cars. Please note that if you choose to exclude Enforcement Officers as part of your event, spaces may not be available for your guests. There is a two hour minimum required with reservation.

Guest Permits

Permits are required to park on Grounds. When displaying a permit, during regular business hours, our Enforcement Officers will be able to identify any illegally parked cars and take the necessary actions. Permits are always required for event parking on McCormick Road, the U.Va Chapel, and various "all times" lots/spaces on grounds. For scheduling purposes, officers must be requested two weeks prior to your event start date. Click here to view pricing for event parking spaces.

Cancellations and Other Fees


Events that are cancelled within 72 hours of the scheduled event start time will incur cancellation fees including a fee per permit. Events cancelled at least 72 hours prior to start time will receive a 50% refund of the total cost of requested signage. Unused permits will not be refunded. Failure to notify Parking and Transportation of cancellations will be handled on a case-by-case basis to determine applicable penalities. Click here to notify us of a cancellation.
