Welcome to Parking & Transportation

Valdosta State University campus provides ample parking spaces to accommodate the campus community. Should you have questions about where to park to attend classes or campus events, please contact Parking & Transportation. We will be happy to assist you! When parking your vehicle to attend classes, we ask that you be responsible and respectful of private and city property.

ATTENTION: Parking permits for the 2018-2019 academic year will be available for purchase beginning July 1, 2018. Students, you must add the $50.00 parking permit charge onto your fees through your banner web registration if you would like for it to be included within your tuition. Permit purchases can be processed online through the customer portal or inside of the Parking & Transportation office.

We will inter-campus your permit to you once we process your application. Payroll Deduction is not available for parking citations, permits only. Please note that employees must have a ZERO balance before they can obtain a new parking permit. All part-time VSU employees MUST go by Human Resources first to obtain an authorization form before a permit can be issued. Students purchasing parking permits on line can select for the permit to be mailed to a physical address or for the permit to be held inside of the parking office for pick-up. Permits are mailed through the campus mailing services department. Temporary parking permits can be obtained in the parking office during the mailing process of the static cling permit if needed to avoid receiving parking citations for no permit or expired permit.

  • Banner holds are generated each day for all outstanding parking citations. Failure to pay citations in full will result in the blocking of transcripts and registration processes.
