Student Parking Registration Info Fall 2019

We encourage you to utilize the online process to avoid long lines at the beginning of the Fall and Spring semesters. Parking Services is located on first floor of Heth Hall.  Office hours are 8 - 4:30, Monday - Friday. 


Due to our adding a new student classification (University Apartment Residents), permits may be purchased online beginning July 25, 2019.



  •  Log into the RU Portal, and click on the "Parking" icon.
  • Select “Get Permit” and complete the steps that follow.  The online registration fee can be paid using VISA, MasterCard or Discover.
  • The permit is then mailed to the address you select.

If you are unable to take advantage of the online vehicle registration, you will need to come to the Parking Services Office in Heth Hall during normal business hours starting August 12, 2019. The registration fee can be paid using VISA, MasterCard, Discover, RU Express, check, cash, or money order.  Financial Aid cannot be used to purchase parking permits and the cost cannot be billed. Please allow at least one hour for the in-person registration process during peak periods.

Students are allowed to park in STUDENT lots without a permit on Monday (8/26/19) and Tuesday (8/27/19).  However, permits must be displayed and the vehicle must be in the appropriate lot designated by the permit (yellow & puple permits in commuter lots, blue permits in resident lots) by 7:00 a.m. on Wednesday (8/28/19).   

If you have further questions or trouble with the online permit purchase process, please contact RU Parking Services via e-mail at, or by phone at (540) 831-6361 during normal business hours, 8 a.m. - 4:30 p.m., M-F.


Please remember that all vehicles parked on the Radford University campus must be registered with Parking Services. Parking regulations are enforced year-round, even during breaks, unless otherwise published.
