Visitor Parking

Parking during Open House
  • The university designates several large parking lots for visitor parking on Open House days. Parking information should be provided after you register for Open House through ECU's Pirate Port.
Parking during individual campus visits - if you are taking an official campus tour
  • The Admissions Office will provide you with a visitor parking pass and parking instructions after you register for the tour through ECU's Pirate Port.
Parking during individual campus visits - if you are not taking an official campus tour
  • Short-term metered parking is available in the lot adjacent to Joyner Library, as well as at other locations across campus. Most meters have a 2-hour limit.
  • If you plan to be on campus for more than two hours, we recommend requesting a parking pass from the STEPP Program. We can provide a visitor pass that will allow you to park in specified lots on Main Campus for the entire day. Please request this pass when you confirm the date and time of your meeting with STEPP staff. If you arrive on campus before your scheduled meeting time, drop by our office as soon as you arrive to pick up the pass so you won't be ticketed or towed.
Parking during Boot Camp
  • Parents: The STEPP Program will issue visitor parking passes on the first day of Boot Camp. These passes will allow parents to park in specified lots on Main Campus for the entire day on Tuesday and Wednesday. If your student's Goal-Setting Meeting is scheduled for Monday afternoon, we will also provide a parking pass for Monday. Please drop by the office to pick up the parking pass as soon as you arrive on campus so you won't be ticketed or towed.
  • Students: New students should begin using their ECU-issued student parking pass on the first day of Boot Camp. The STEPP Program does not provide student parking passes during Boot Camp, and the visitor parking permits issued to parents cannot be used on student vehicles.

Getting directions from a GPS unit or online maps website?

  • If you set your destination as the intersection of Lawrence Street and Library Drive in Greenville NC, you should end up right next to the metered parking spaces adjacent to Joyner Library.
  • If you're just aiming for the University, instead of that specific parking lot, you can set the destination as 1000 East Fifth Street in Greenville NC.
