Meter Parking

Short Term Visitor Parking

 

Parking Meters are available on a first come, first served basis at various locations around grounds including the Observatory Hill Dining Facility, Gilmer Hall on McCormick Road, at the back entrance of the Law School, near Kerchoff/Clark on Cabell Drive, and on the top deck of the Scott Stadium Parking Garage.

All meters have a two-hour maximum. Vehicles are not permitted to use meter spaces for more than two consecutive hours, regardless of how much payment is made while the vehicle is parked at the meter (i.e. "feeding the meter"). Vehicles found in violation of the two-hour limit will be ticketed, immobilized (booted), and/or towed at the owners expense.

Warning citations are not issued for meter violations, thus each ticket will result in a payable fine.

Meter Malfunctions: If a meter malfunctions, that space must not be used and the malfunction should be reported to the Department of Parking and Transportation at 434-924-7231 or parking@virginia.edu. A refund of money may be requested within one business day of the loss.
