Greetings to the UMW Campus Community:
As we begin the 2012-2013 academic year, the office of Parking Management extends a warm welcome to faculty, staff and students. We wish to share some basic rules of the road for a smooth opening of the school year. 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 escort services beyond the daylight hours. Please call 540-654-1025 to request service.
Under the umbrella of Business Services, our parking management team includes: Robin Jones, Supervisor; Mark Graziano and William Barnett.
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 with guest passes available from UMW Parking Management, or the EL front desk.
Note: EAGLE VILLAGE is private property and parking 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.
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 To ensure the availability of safe parking and the efficient use of the parking resources, regulations will be enforced beginning Monday, September 3, 2012, 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.
The student parking enforcement program, introduced in 2011, will resume in September.
Student Parking Advisory Committee An advisory committee to discuss campus parking issues will be established during the Fall semester. Interested students should contact Robin Jones.
Specific questions on lots, decals or enforcement may be directed to:
