Sex Offender Information

The Jeanne Clery Act requires institutions of higher education to issue a statement advising the campus community where law enforcement agency information provided by State concerning registered sex offenders may be obtained.  Click here to find out more.

Parking Regulations

There are many advantages of the College's downtown Roanoke location.  Parking is not one of them.  To remedy this problem, we are fortunate to have access to the large parking garage which is adjacent to Carilion Roanoke Community Hospital and just steps away from campus.  Parking in the garage is free for our employees and students.  To find out more about parking on and around campus, click here.
