Our Parking Management team includes:

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/frequent campus guests.

Permits: Parking permit applications are available for eligible students and all faculty and staff through Self Service Banner and you can always come to the Parking Management office to get a parking permit.

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)

Eagle Landing Parking : Residents of Eagle Landing who have purchased deck parking will need to register with the  Eagle Landing  front desk after move-in to receive their  RFID (garage door opener). These students have 24/7 access to the enclosed deck parking on floors 3-5 of Eagle Landing parking garage.  Eagle Landing guest spaces are for registered guests with guest passes available from UMW Parking Management, UMWPD, and the Eagle Landing Front Desk.

Note: EAGLE VILLAGE is private property and parking outside around shops and restaurants is for tenants and customers of Eagle Village businesses only. Towing in these locations 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.

Enforcement To ensure the availability of safe parking and the efficient use of the parking resources, all parking regulations are enforced on a year round schedule; enforcement will begin Wednesday, August 31, 2016.  All vehicles parked on the UMW campus must be registered with Parking Management and a Decal must be present on vehicles.   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.

The Student Parking Enforcement Program, will resume in September.  Any students interested in working with Parking Management will need to contact the Financial Aide Department or Jean Elliott @ jelliot3@umw.edu or call the office 654-1129.

Specific questions on lots, decals or enforcement may be directed to:  Jean Elliott, 540-654-1129 or jelliot3@umw.edu.

We wish you a successful academic year.
