Update: Orientation Parking Reminder

To Faculty/Staff:  Based on parking patterns observed during our first week of Orientation, the lot behind Jefferson Hall will be opened the remainder of this week for Faculty/Staff parking. All other parking restrictions apply as described in the original message (included below.) Questions may be directed to Parking Management.

Greetings University Community:

We are excited to host new UMW students for Summer Orientation during the second half of June. This process is very important to help our new students and their families acclimate to the University community. Your support in creating a welcoming atmosphere for these campus guests is greatly appreciated.

As part of this process, the orientation committee has outlined the needed parking for orientation. This may alter where you will need to park during these days. The information below provides specific directions. Thanks in advance for your support.
