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.

LEED Certification

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.
