Frequently Asked Questions

Do I need a parking pass, and how do I get one?

In order to park your car safely around campus or in any of the school-owned parking lots, a pass is required. These can be acquired by visiting Parking Services, located in Heth Hall. Registering for a pass is simple and quick, and can be done online.

What is AlcoholEdu and Haven?

As part of our comprehensive community program, Radford University asks all incoming students to complete two online courses, AlcoholEdu and Haven.

AlcoholEdu provides valuable information about alcohol use and abuse while Haven addresses issues of sexual assault, relationship violence and stalking.  Learn more about these courses.
