Visitor Parking

Visitors, or individuals not enrolled or employed by the university must also display a parking permit while using campus parking spaces. Visitor permits are issued by the Department of Parking and Transportation Services. This permit temporarily registers the vehicle and allows parking in the B1/B3 and C zones for a fee of $4 a day and $10 a week. 

Metered spaces are also available in various areas on campus and require the insertion of the proper coinage for activation.  Any meter that is not operational is considered an invalid parking space and should be reported to our office immediately.

Staff and faculty should advise guests and visitors, including those on campus for employment interviews, of the parking permit requirements so they will know to stop by the Department of Parking and Transportation Services, 305 E. Tenth Street, prior to parking on campus. Visitors are expected to comply with university parking and traffic regulations and are held responsible for citations issued for incorrect or improper parking.

Weekend visitors may purchase a weekend parking pass for $4 a day prior to 4:30 Friday at the office of Parking and Transportation Services.  After-hours, they may be obtained from the ECU Police Department at 609 E. 10th Street.  This pass is only valid in the zones indicated from 4pm Friday until midnight Sunday.  For more information, contact the main office of Parking and Transportation at 252-328-6294 during regular business hours. 

Special Event Parking

ECU Parking and Transportation Services recognizes that special events are important in the achievement of the University’s mission.  The Department understands that the related parking and transportation needs must be supported. However, displacement of typical parking and transportation services must be minimized so that those who bear the most significant financial burden for these services are treated fairly.

 

It is the responsibility of any department or group requiring parking or transportation for events to notify Parking and Transportation Services well in advance so that accommodations may be made.   With few exceptions, all visitors and guests are required to display a valid ECU parking permit.  Department’s may purchase Departmental Guest Permits for a nominal fee.  Additional costs associated with special event parking and transportation services are the responsibility of the special event sponsor or host. 

 

Parking arrangements for special events and/or special guests ranges from designating specific parking spaces to making arrangements for parking in the park and ride areas.  Parking and Transportation Services may also provide personnel for parking control and parking directions for special events.  The personnel costs associated with special event and special guest parking is the responsibility of the sponsor or host.  Parking and Transportation Services labor rate is $17.00 per hour. 

 

Work orders are required for events in which parking assistance is requested.  Work orders are to be entered via the University’ work order system.  To enter a work order for special event parking assistance begin by entering the work order system  and click main campus and then the Parking and Transportation Services Building.  Complete the work order as you would any other work order.  Brevity is key.  The work order system limits the number of characters that will print on the work order.   Select the “Spec. Event Parking Assistance” asset and “Parking and Transportation” as the shop.  Change the FOAPA account to reflect the one to which services should be billed.
