Parking Exception Application

Resident Freshmen and Sophomores are not permitted to have vehicles on campus. All students are encouraged to utilize the campus shuttle services, car share program, and/or public transportation. Before submitting this form, please visit the Transportation Options for Students for more details on these services and where to find local business information. All Parking Exception Requests must follow the application process. Ineligible students with a one-time emergency must contact the parking office through this form. A temp pass will not be issued for longer than 1 week, the car must be parked in the lot it is assigned, a fee will be applied, and it cannot be renewed.


Villanova Student Health Center provides many health services. NovaCare is located in the Jake Nevin Field House. The Mobility Shuttle accommodates nearby medical facilities including Pen MedicineRothman Institute, Bryn Mawr Hospital, Main Line Diagnosis, Excel Physical Therapy, Urgent Care, and many local medical offices. Please call 610-519-5800 to see if another nearby medical facility can be accommodated.


Medical Parking Exception Application will only be consider if the administering Doctor completes and returns the Doctor Certification and Treatment Schedule Form with a request on official letterhead explaining the need for a vehicle on campus. Medical will not necessarily be a reason for an exception to be granted. Your application can then be submitted for review.


Employment Parking Exception Application will only be considered if it is an academic credit bearing internship. The employer will need to provide documentation of the location(s) on official letterhead and documentation of the registered course from the registrar. Credit bearing employment will not necessarily be a reason for an exception to be granted. Your application can then be submitted for review.

Please note: If this is not a university approved internship then we cannot approve your request. Ineligeble students will not be granted parking for general employment. When job searching, please consider the transportation required to reach the job location.


To begin the application process please submit the Parking Exception Application Form

You will be contacted by a member of the parking staff who will request the above documentation, so it can be submitted for review.


IMPORTANT: DO NOT bring a car to campus prior to learning the outcome of the application. Violations incurred before contacting the parking office or before approval will not be waived.
