NOTE: VBHEC classrooms are undergoing renovations / upgrades and may not be available until January 2024. An update will be posted to this page on December 1, 2023.


The VBHEC follows the published academic calendar. Normal semester operating hours are Monday through Friday: 8 a.m. to 10 p.m. and Saturday: 8 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. 


Parking at the Virginia Beach Higher Education Center requires a permit from 7 AM to 10 PM, Monday through Friday.

Parking is enforced utilizing License Plate Recognition (LPR) and a virtual permit system where your license plate is your permit.

A valid University parking permit, hourly parking payment, or MobilePay payment is required, to avoid a Parking citation.

The parking meters have been replaced by a “Pay Station” located just inside the front entrance, to the Center. It accepts coins, bills, and credit cards, in person, as well as mobile payments, via text.

The new pay station is Pay-by-license-plate making all 600 parking spaces available for metered parking.

Pay station and MobilePay options for Hourly Parking are also enforced using the LPR system. There is a pay station at the VBHEC and MobilePay can be accessed by scanning the QR Code or texting the PCode located on a MobilePay sign. MobilePay also allows you to pay from your mobile device to extend your parking time should you need to do so.


Vending machines are located near the lounge area (through the double doors) on the first floor on the Princess Anne Road side of the building. For assistance, please see the staff in the Learning Commons, Room 146.
