Parking on the CVM campus is by permit only. Visitors who will be here more than one day will need to go to the transportation office prior to arriving at our campus and purchase day passes if you wish to park in the CVM campus parking deck. The Transportation Office is located on main campus at 2721 Sullivan Drive. The office opens at 7:00AM weekdays. The passes are $5 per day.

Free parking is available across from our campus on Blue Ridge Rd. in the North Carolina State Fairgrounds lot highlighted in blue on the campus map. Please note that this is not an approved university parking lot so you park there at your own risk. There is a trail from Blue Ridge Road that follows next to the parking deck and leads to William Moore Drive. Follow to the main CVM entrance


The Wolfline shuttle bus service is a great way to get around campus and from university guest housing to the Veterinary Teaching Hospital.
