UNCW's first parking deck opened August 2009.
The deck is located at Seahawk Crossing near the intersection of Reynolds and Cahill Drives, in close proximity to the Education Building, Dobo Hall and McNeill Hall.
Parking Deck Features
The deck, which was designed to blend with the university's neo-Georgian architecture, provides premier parking accommodations for resident students, faculty and staff, commuter students and visitors.
There are 997 parking spaces for cars, vans and 20 motorcycles, including two handicap van accessible spaces. The deck also provides covered bicycle parking and electric hook-ups for hybrid cars.

Visitor Parking at the Deck
The 52 visitor parking spaces, which are located on the main level, are accessible 24/7, with cash payment at the walk-up pay station. Visitor parking at the deck is free for the first 30 minutes. After that, the hourly rate is $1.50. The visitor daily rate is a maximum of $10 for a 24-hour period. The walk-up pay station accepts $1, $5, $10, $20, $50 and $100 bills. Parkers will receive their change back in coins and/or $1, $5 and $10 bills.
The parking deck's regionally produced materials, electric hook-ups
for hybrid cars and other features helped the Seahawk Crossing
complex earn Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED)
certification from the U.S. Green Building Council. The LEED
rating system is the nationally accepted standard for design,
construction and operation of green buildings. Seahawk Crossing
is the first LEED certified project at UNCW.
