Motor Vehicles and Parking Permits

A student enrolled in the VMI Summer Session may keep or park a motor vehicle on post only if the parking fee is paid and the vehicle is properly registered with the VMI Police. Vehicles must be parked in designated areas only (for more information on parking regulations, please consult the “Appendix” in the VMI Summer Session Catalogue).

Failure to properly register a motor vehicle or to park in designated parking areas shall result in the student losing the privilege of parking the motor vehicle on Post. Improper parking will result in fines or the motor vehicle being towed to a privately owned storage facility off Post. The owner of the towed vehicle shall be responsible for paying all towing fees and/or storage fees charged by the towing company. The location of towed vehicles can be ascertained by calling the VMI Police (540-464-7017).

  • Current Cadets: To obtain a parking permit please register your vehicle directly through Post View under the Summer Session tab.  Once you have submitted payment for your summer tuition and fees, including the parking permit via Post View, the permit will be sent to your VMI Post Office Box for pick up.
  • Cadets Not Currently Enrolled at VMI & Students From Other Colleges: To obtain a parking permit please indicate on your Non-VMI Cadet Summer Session Application that you will be bringing a vehicle and include the requested details. Submit your payment for summer session tuition and fees, including the parking permit, via Post View. You will pick up your parking permit at the VMI Police Department. 
  • STP Students: To obtain a parking permit please indicate that you will be bringing a vehicle on your STP application and include the requested details.  Submit your STP tuition and fees, including the parking permit, via Post View. You will receive your parking permit at STP check-in.
