Parking Enforcement & Reminders

The following message is from Parking Management:  

Greetings to the UMW Campus Community:

Welcome back to campus! The Office of Parking Management would like to share a few reminders for the new semester.

The Parking Management Office is responsible for ensuring the safe and efficient use of parking resources.  Under the umbrella of Business Services, our parking management team includes:

  • Robin Jones, Supervisor
  • Mark Graziano , Enforcement Officer
  • William Barnett, Enforcement Officer

To ensure the availability of safe parking and the efficient use of the parking resources, the enforcement of all parking regulations will begin on Wednesday, January 16, 2013.  Please review the following information in order to prevent receiving citations and/or having your vehicle towed during the upcoming year.

Parking on Campus

Vehicles parked on campus must display a valid decal or temporary dash pass and be parked in a lot that corresponds with the decal designation.

  • Reserved spaces and restricted lots are enforced at ALL times.
  • College Avenue parking is available for commuters, faculty and staff with appropriate decals as well as University visitors.
  • The parking website offers guidance on seeking a “parking pass” for overnight campus guests.

Parking Lot Designation

A listing of all lots and their designation may be found on the Parking website (includes guidelines for the UMW Parking Deck)

Permits 

Parking permit applications are available for eligible students and all faculty and staff through EagleNet.

Eagle Landing Parking 

Those residents of Eagle Landing who have purchased deck parking will receive RFID tags from the EL front desk.  These students have 24/7 access to the enclosed deck parking on floors 3-5 of Eagle Landing.  Eagle Landing guest spaces are for registered guests.  Guest passes are available from UMW Parking Management.

Note:  EAGLE VILLAGE is private property and parking is for tenants and customers of Eagle Village businesses only.  Towing in this location is enforced.

Parking in nearby Commercial & Residential Areas  

Students and faculty/staff members are cautioned not to park their vehicles in nearby commercial parking lots or residential communities while on campus.  The City of Fredericksburg and Commercial Businesses restrict parking to patrons or residents within designated city blocks. Violators are subject to fines and towing.

Construction Detours  

The Convergence Center construction continues and details on the project may be found on the Provost website: http://provost.umw.edu/convergence-center.  Construction parking will be within a designated area in the Sunken Road Lot.  A campus map of the pedestrian detour is found on the following site:  http://provost.umw.edu/wp-content/blogs.dir/191/files/2012/08/Campus_Walk_Converge_Ctr_Detour_.pdf

Enforcement 

The university has been granted the authority under the Code of Virginia Sections 23-9.2:3, and 2.2-4800 to issue citations and collect fines.
