Getting a Parking Permit
Practically everyone at Old Dominion has a parking permit. Most of ODU’s student body is commuter-based, and therefore, it is virtually a requirement. Even with parking permits, students are not guaranteed parking spots. The parking situation at ODU is horrid. It is, however, very simple to get one. Students just need to go to parking services, pay for the permit, and they receive them right there on the spot.
