As part of ongoing efforts to extend the lifespan of parking structures on campus, the University of Missouri will be temporarily closing the Virginia Avenue Parking Structure (VAPS) Dec. 24 for repairs to the 20-year-old facility.

Closing the structure before the start of the spring semester will cause the least interruption to work and academics. VAPS is safe but will need to be closed to accommodate the upcoming work. The $16 million project is expected to be completed by fall 2023.

While VAPS is closed, the following accommodations for permit holders will be made:

  • Staff and faculty VAPS permit holders will be temporarily relocated to other parking structures on campus, depending on where they work in relation to Hitt Street. Those who work west of Hitt Street will park in the Conley Avenue Garage (CAG), and those who work east of Hitt Street will park in the University Avenue Garage (UAG).
  • Residential Life student permit holders will be moved from VAPS to Parking Structure #7 (PS7); about 400 faculty and staff have been permanently reassigned from PS7 to Tiger Avenue Parking Structure (TAPS).

Visit for more information on visitor parking.

Vehicles that have not been moved by Jan. 4 will be towed to another campus location for safekeeping.

Relocation sites have not yet been identified for the MU Police Department and Landscape Service, which occupy more than 23,000 gross square feet of finished space in VAPS.
