Parking on campus is by permit only. All students, staff, faculty, vendors, and visitors who park on campus are required by East Carolina University to register their vehicle with the Department of Parking and Transportation Services, pay a registration fee, and permanently display a valid parking permit on their vehicle. The only exception is for those vehicles parking at a metered parking space.
Parking on campus is zoned parking. The parking permit purchased from the Department of Parking and Transportation Services and displayed on the vehicle authorizes the vehicle to be parked in specific areas according to the permit designation.
The parking permit is a removable decal that must be displayed on the windshield, in the lower portion of the driver's side, above the inspection sticker if the vehicle is registered in North Carolina. If the state inspection sticker is placed elsewhere, the ECU parking permit should still be place in the lower portion of the windshield on the driver's side.
Permits are valid July 1 through June 30 of each year.
