Welcome to Parking & Transportation

Fall 2022 virtual parking permits will be available for purchase beginning July 1, 2022 (your vehicle tag will be your permit, a number will be assigned to you – no physical permits will be issued – vehicles are no longer allowed to back in or pull through parking spaces). Drivers must notify the Parking office with new vehicle information and updated tags. This information can be updated through the parking web portal or by emailing parking@valdosta.edu.

License Plate Recognition (LPR) Program

Fall 2022 Permit Prices

Front Plate Tags

We are excited to announce that Parking & Transportation now offers front license plates for your convenience.  A front plate will allow our new License Plate Recognition (LPR) system to scan the front plate number as the virtual parking permit while a vehicle is pulled through or backed into a parking space on campus. Front plates must be affixed to the front of your vehicle.

The front plates are $25.00 for each vehicle and must be purchased at the Parking & Transportation Office, located in Sustella Parking Deck, via cash, check or money order (we apologize but do not have an online option for front plates).  A valid virtual permit must be on file to obtain a front license plate.  These front plates must be utilized by the associated customer ONLY and cannot be transferred, shared, or reassigned to additional parties.

Metered Parking Available

At the request of SGA, Parking & Transportation is excited to announce that 4 metered parking areas will be available on campus beginning Monday August 17, 2020: Langdale lot, Baytree lot, Café lot, and the Union lot. Parkmobile signs will be placed at each location for app downloading purposes. The charge is $0.25 per 15 minutes (or $1 per hour) with a 3 hour limit per day per lot. Metered spaces will be monitored from 7:00 a.m - 5:30 p.m Monday - Thursday and 7:00 a.m - 3:00 p.m on Friday (weekends are open campus parking). A VSU permit is not required to park and pay in the metered spaces, but is still required for other campus parking. Vehicles must park in the zone that was paid for.
