Parking Decal & Temporary Pass Basics

Liberty University Police Department (LUPD) will enforce traffic and parking regulations on the property of Liberty University, Thomas Road Baptist Church (TRBC), Liberty Christian Academy (LCA), the Early Learning Center (ELC), as well as any auxiliary locations owned by the university system.

If you have any questions, contact LUPD at (434) 592-3697 or email luparking@liberty.edu.

All employees, students, and visitors bringing a vehicle on campus must register their vehicle. This registration sets forth certain responsibilities of all employees and students concerning the operation of a vehicle on campus. Ignorance of the regulations does not exempt an individual from the penalties of these regulations.

Parking Decal Payment

  • Students: You can pay for your parking decal on your student account during Financial Check-In.
  • Faculty/Staff: The price of your parking decal will automatically be deducted from your payroll.

Any motor vehicle (including motorcycles, motorbikes, and mopeds) or bicycle operated or parked on property owned or controlled by Liberty University must display a valid Liberty University parking decal or temporary parking pass.

Failure to do so can result in towing and/or other administrative actions.

Parking Decal Placement

  • Single Vehicle – Place the decal on the rear window, in the bottom-left corner
  • Multiple Vehicles – You will receive a hangtag to swap between vehicles
  • Convertible – You will receive a hangtag
  • Motorcycle – Place the permit on the front “fork area” of the vehicle
  • Bicycle – Place the permit in a visible location

It is the vehicle owners/operators responsibility to ensure that their parking permit is fully visible at all times.

General Parking Guidelines

  • Decal Enforcement is Monday-Friday, 4 a.m.-4 p.m.
  • Reserved spaces and lots are reserved at all times.
  • Present parking space signage must be obeyed at all times- reserved, visitor, handicap, purple heart, customer and electric vehicle spaces.
  • You must be parked within a parking space, between two white lines.
  • Check parking lot signs to ensure vehicle is parked in an area/lot permitted for parking decal or temporary pass.
  • Lack of a convenient parking space is no excuse for violation of any parking regulation. The same rules pertain to motorcycles, mopeds, scooters and bicycles.

High Traffic Times

  • Move-In Days
  • Move Out Days
  • CFAW Weekends
  • Family Weekend
  • Home Game Days
  • Homecoming Weekend
  • Commencement
  • Special events

Expect to see heavier traffic at certain points throughout the school year or lot closures for University events. Please keep in mind that LUPD Officers work hard to maintain an orderly system during these times. Obtaining a parking permit does not guarantee a convenient parking pass. 

RV and Camper Parking on Campus

The University assumes no responsibility for loss or damage to private property.

Regulations are subject to change without notice. In such cases, these changes will be posted on the Liberty University Police Department’s website. Notifications of these changes will also be posted on Official Announcements in myLU.
