Parking changes coming in January

The following email is sent from the Office of the Vice President for Administration and Finance. 

To the campus community:

As some of you may have heard, the beginning of next semester will bring several changes related to parking around campus. These changes result from a parking study commissioned by the City of Fredericksburg that reviewed parking in the downtown area as well as around UMW.

Here are the key changes that will impact the UMW community, beginning in January of 2018:

  • Residential neighborhoods surrounding campus will be restricted to resident parking only, prohibiting UMW student OR faculty parking in College Heights or College Terrace during the day Monday through Friday. This will include the residential side of College Avenue.
  • On the campus side of College Avenue, a two-block stretch on either side of the University Center will become two-hour parking only.

Additional changes, including metered parking along College Avenue, are planned for implementation in October 2018.

A Campus Parking Task Force has been working since September on making these changes as seamless as possible. As updates become available, you can find them on the parking management site.
