How do I renew my annual permit?

Faculty/Staff may buy their annual permit starting in September through the ODU Parking Portal or in the Transportation and Parking Services office located in the 43rd & Elkhorn Garage.

Which permit should I buy if I have multiple statuses at the University?

Whenever a dual status exists, for example a full-time employee who also teaches as an adjunct faculty member, the higher parking permit rate prevails.

I'm driving a car that is not registered to my permit, what do I do?

If you plan to come to campus with a different vehicle than those on your parking permit, please go immediately to the Parking Portal and add the new vehicle to your account AND link the license plate to your permit. If the vehicle is a rental, be sure to remove it from your account after you return it.

Sold or Traded Vehicles
If a vehicle is sold or traded, it must be reported to TPS immediately, as any fines accrued by that vehicle will be the responsibility of the owner/permit holder.

How do I update my vehicle or other information associated with my permit?

You can manage your vehicles, permits, and account information through the ODU Parking Portal.

To see detailed instructions on updating your vehicles and purchasing your permit in the Parking Portal, click HERE.

Can I cancel or return my permit?

Faculty/Staff permits are eligible for a pro-rated refund. The refund amount is calculated based on when the permit is deactivated and is only available to permits paid in full. Deactivation will occur only when Transportation and Parking Services is notified in writing of the request. For permits purchased through payroll deduction, cancellation will occur at the first available payroll processing date once Transportation and Parking Services is notified in writing of the cancellation request.
