ECSU Parking Information

Welcome

Welcome to Elizabeth City State University.  Parking on campus is by permit only.  All faculty, staff and students (Full-Time or Part-Time) who planning to park on campus are required to register their vehicles with the University Police Department, pay a registration fee and display a valid permit on their vehicle.  Faculty, staff, student, and visitor hangtags must be placed on the rearview mirror facing outward at all times the vehicle is parked on university property.  All questions should be directed to ECSU Police Department Parking Unit, Thomas Jenkins Building, 252-335-3095.

Parking for Special Events/Visitor Parking

Departments or persons sponsoring workshops, seminars, contractual work or other special activities which require additional visitor parking, must complete the Visitor Parking Permit Request 24 hours in advance of persons visiting the campus.  There are no parking enforcement during sporting events on the University campus.

Visitors are individuals not enrolled or employed by the university.  All visitors must report to University Police Department where they are issued a "Visitor's Pass".  This parking pass will cover the period the visitor expects to be on campus and will also serve as authorization to park in visitors designated parking spaces.  Visitors are expected to comply with university parking and traffic regulations and are held responsible for citations issued for incorrect or improper parking.

Purchasing Parking Permits

The ECSU Parking Unit uses Cardinal Tracking Ticktrak automated system to manage parking accounts.  Upon request faculty, staff, and students can ask for a copy of their citations or information regarding their parking account from University Police Parking Unit located at the Thomas Jenkins Building or 252-335-3095.
