Visitor Information

COVID-19 Visitor Policy

To mitigate the spread of COVID-19 and maintain physical distancing measures throughout campus, HPU has enacted a new visitor policy effective immediately: Only HPU students, faculty, staff and registered admissions guests will be permitted on campus (except between August 13 and August 17 when family members will be welcomed to campus to help their student during move-in). The only exception is parent visits; students must continue to register their parents in the iVisitor system. The policy will be reassessed throughout the semester and may be altered based on local, state and national health and safety considerations.

We know you may miss welcoming some of your friends to campus, but we appreciate your partnership in keeping yourself and those around you safe.

Hours of Operation and Guest Registration:

The High Point University main campus is currently restricted to essential personnel only.

Current Entry points to campus: University Pkwy, Centennial, Aldridge and Panther Drive via Lexington. All other entrances are closed.

Admissions guests will need to fill out a form when they enter campus.

Students are required to notify Security of any overnight guests.
Students can register all guests here.


Information below is only valid when campus is not restricted to essential personnel.

Visitor Parking:

Visitors parking on campus between 6 AM and 8 PM are not required to have parking permits. Visitors must park in “visitor” parking spaces or any other unmarked spaces or lots.

Overnight guests parking on campus need to display a Visitor parking permit. Permits can be picked up from any Welcome Center or at either of the two Security locations (North College Administration or R.G. Wanek Center).

Temporary Permits:

The Security Department may issue temporary parking permits to anyone on a discretionary basis. Parking regulations still apply to vehicles that have the temporary permits.

Temporary permits need to be picked up from the North College Administration building or R.G. Wanek Center.
