Parking ALERT

Parking at NVC will change this fall. The campus will lose about 300 parking spaces during the construction phase of our first parking garage. The 700-space-garage will be completed in July 2013. It will be located in Lot 6, which is adjacent to Huisache Hall and the Boardwalk,  

During this period, NVC will continue to provide FREE additional parking at an exterior lot located off of Military Drive and Ellison, which is owned by our good neighbors at SeaWorld. We will have up to four buses shuttling students to our campus for FREE from the exterior lot.  

This will be a busy period for our campus and may be somewhat congested. Please be observant of all safety signs, paying particular attention to stay out of posted construction zones.
