Motorcycle and Moped Permits

Motorcycle and moped parking areas have been designated throughout Grounds. Details can be found HERE.

A UVA Motorcycle/Moped parking permit, displayed on the left front fork, is required whenever parked in these areas. UVA Motorcycle/Moped parking permits are also honored in all UVA parking areas designated as Blue/Commuter.

Motorcycles and mopeds are considered motored vehicles and as such are subject to the same parking and operating restrictions as vehicles. For example, motor vehicles require valid license plates and visible VIN numbers, are prohibited on sidewalks and at bike racks, are subject to ticketing, towing, and immobilization (booting) for parking violations.

 

Parking Eligibility for First Years

University policy prohibits undergraduate first-year students from having vehicles on-Grounds during their first-year (fall & spring semesters). The policy governing use of vehicles by first-year students can be found in the Undergraduate Record (http://records.ureg.virginia.edu/).   First-year parking exceptions are only granted in extraordinary circumstances. Request for exceptions should be made via this online request form  to John Cheney, Assistant Dean of Students in Housing and Residence Life.

The form includes:

  • Residence area on Grounds 
  • Reason for the request
  • Length of time for the request (full academic year or for a certain period of time).

First-year student athletes with regular practices away from Grounds should notify their coaches, and the Athletic Department will contact Dean Cheney. 

Students who receive an exception are eligible to purchase an S6 parking permit (as space allows) or a Storage Permit for the Emmet/Ivy Garage.

 

Renewal from Year to Year

Student parking permits do not renew from year to year (Exception: Graduate students who receive a paycheck from the University).
