Parking and Transportation


All campus parking, including along Alumni Mall, requires a parking permit from 7:00 a.m. to 10:00 p.m., unless otherwise noted by signage.

Parking is available in the North End Parking Garage on Turner Street at 300 Turner Street NW.

  • For many Moss Arts Center performances and large events, this garage will be staffed by an attendant and payment ($10, cash only) must be made at the time of entry. This event parking price is $2 higher than the garage’s daily rate to allow us to provide staffing to make both entering and exiting the garage more efficient for larger numbers of cars. You may exit at either the Turner Street or Gilbert Street gates.
  • All other times, visitors can take a ticket upon entrance and pay the $8 daily rate using Visa or Mastercard when exiting.

Convenient parking is also located in downtown Blacksburg. Town parking is free every day after 5:00 p.m.

Patrons are always welcome to drop off and pick up guests directly at the main doors of the Moss Arts Center on Alumni Mall and Turner Street.

Additionally, ParkMobile provides a convenient, contactless electronic payment option for parking on the Blacksburg campus; it can be used in any parking meter, campus parking space, or lot that has standard F/S, C/G, or R parking.

There are six ADA parking spaces at the main entrance to the Moss Arts Center on Alumni Mall and eight ADA parking spaces at the Turner Street entrance. These spaces are available on a first come, first-served basis and cannot be reserved. Additional ADA-accessible parking is available on all levels of the North End parking garage on Turner Street. The front driveway is a great option for passenger drop-off.

Please be aware there is no parking in the striped areas near the building. Virginia Tech will issue tickets to vehicles parked in the striped areas. Additionally, local businesses located near the Moss Arts Center will tow vehicles parked in their lots that do not belong to their customers.
