New Changes Coming in Fall 2023

Starting this Fall, Parking & NOVACard Services will be going cashless! We will also be closing our offices at 12:30 p.m. on Fridays. Learn More about these changes. 

Parking Services are currently undergoing a signage update at all six campus locations. During this time, there will be a mixture of old existing signs and new signage being installed. Please be aware that the 'B-Lots' will now be referred to as 'Student Hourly & Pay Parking' and 'A-Lots' will be referred to as 'Faculty & Staff Parking'. All 'A' and 'B' stencilling will be removed.

If you have any questions, please feel free to contact us at 703-323-3123 or

Understand More About Virtual Permits!

Parking Services implemented a virtual permit system where your license plate is your permit. When permits are ordered online, they are immediately active and there is no more forgetting to hang your permit, waiting for the permit in the mail, or replacement fees. At this point, everyone is familiar with the system, but we wanted to remind everyone of important things to remember.

  • Since each vehicle's license plate is used as your parking permit, license plates must be registered accurately to avoid being issued a citation. Errors in license plate registration are the responsibility of the customer.
  • You can have up to three vehicles attached to your permit. If you are driving a new vehicle to campus, please make sure it is added to your permit before you park. You can log into your parking account and add it yourself or you can send an email with the vehicle information to and we can add it for you.
  • While you can have three vehicles attached to your permit, only one vehicle can park at the College across all campuses at any given time. If more than one vehicle is found at the college within a two-hour period, both vehicles may receive a citation.
