Welcome Letter

Greetings and welcome to the Transportation and Parking Services Department. Here are three simple things that you can do to have a more pleasant experience getting to and around the Norfolk Campus.

  1. Get a parking permit/decal and display it on your rear view mirror, or park in a metered or visitor parking space to pay by the hour,

  2. Obtain your parking permit/decal online instead of waiting in line, and

  3. If you arrive on campus between 10:00 and 12:00 noon, the parking garages and surface parking lots across Hampton Blvd from main campus almost always have parking spaces available during the peak periods, just add 5-7minutes to your walk time to your destination.

If you choose not to drive and need a car our department provides Zipcars which can be rented by the hour. We also provide Hampton Roads Transit (just show your valid ODU ID when boarding) if you want to use the municipal transit system and you are also encouraged to ride on the ODU Shuttles (route maps and schedules are provided on our webpage) which can be viewed "live" on line at: http://www.odutransit.com/

Please do not hesitate to let us know if you need assistance or if you notice problems in one of our parking facilities or on any of our ODU Shuttle Buses. Feel free to call or email if you have question, concerns or comments.

Best Regards,

Transportation and Parking Services
