City of Greenville Parking Zones and ECU Parking Zones

The City of Greenville and East Carolina University have both adopted similar zoned parking systems, which can be confusing to anyone who is not aware of the distinctive differences.

Listed below are some guidelines to follow to help recognize an ECU parking zone from a City of Greenville parking zone:

  • All of the signs/permits for ECU zones have a letter AND a number (i.e. A1, A2, B1, B2, etc.) posted on them. The City of Greenville only has a single letter (i.e. A, B, C) for their zones posted on their signs. ECU zoned parking spaces are within actual parking lots that have an official ECU sign at the entrance that is color coded to the type of zone its for (i.e. purple, blue, yellow).
  • The City of Greenville's parking zones include parallel parking such as those lining streets like 1st Street or in the residential, side streets off 5th Street. The City of Greenville's parking zone signs are much smaller than ECU's signs, are red and white, and have 'No Parking' at the top followed by which permit can still park there during certain hours. The City of Greenville also has green and white, 2 hour parking signs, whereas ECU does not have exclusive 2 hour parking signs.
