Important Message from Parking Management

The following message is from Parking Management:   

Greetings to the UMW Campus Community:

This message is intended to share some basic rules of the road from the parking management office; the parking management office is responsible for ensuring the safe and efficient use of parking resources.  As an added safety measure, UMW Campus Police provide student escort services beyond the daylight hours. Please call 540-654-1025 to request service. 

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.  Commuter students with valid decals may park on College Avenue.  UMW residential students may park in designated lots.

Parking Lot Designation:  http://adminfinance.umw.edu/parking (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 with guest passes available from UMW Parking Management, in Lee Hall, or after hours in Brent Hall.     

Note:  EAGLE VILLAGE is private property and parking is for tenants and customers of Eagle Village businesses only.   Towing in these locations is enforced by tenants and property managers.   

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.  Non-compliance with City Code may result in parking citations or towing.


To ensure the availability of safe parking and the efficient use of the parking resources, regulations will be enforced beginning Monday, January 23, on a year round schedule. 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.  

Questions may be directed to:   David Sing, Parking Management Supervisor     540-654-1129

    Please email me about where I can park for the Reunion next weekend. It seems that getting a temp. parking pass for every place I may be on campus is unnecessarily time-consuming and cumbersome since I will be there for only one day–Sat.

    Please tell me info that will make my experience easier. I have to drive to Fred. on Sat. and drive back.

    Thanks very much.
