Snow Emergency Declaration on Fredericksburg Campus, Thursday, January 17

The following message is from the Office of Parking Management:

The University has declared a snow/ice emergency on the Fredericksburg campus today, Thursday, January 17.  University Snow Emergency parking regulations will be in effect January 17.  Please note that the Dahlgren campus and Stafford campus are under a separate snow/ice management plan.

No vehicles are allowed to remain in Snow Emergency areas after 10 p.m. Any vehicle on University property interfering with snow removal operations is subject to towing at any time during the snow emergency declaration at the owner’s expense.

Note: No Parking on Double Drive after 5 p.m., January 17.

Snow Emergency areas include:

  • All Faculty/Staff parking
  • Commuter parking
  • Top level of the UMW parking deck
  • Top level of the Eagle Landing parking deck
  • Double Drive and all driveways and roadways on campus


In the case of public events, the lot in use for the public event will be closed as soon as the event concludes. 

All designated handicapped parking spaces, except those at Woodard Campus Center, are exempt from Snow Emergency regulations and Facilities Services will ensure those spaces remain accessible.

Lots will reopen at 7 a.m. tomorrow unless the University is declared closed or moves to a delayed opening. Under either of these conditions, all Snow Emergency areas will remain closed to parking until the University officially reopens.

The greater Fredericksburg area is under a winter storm advisory with the potential for snow/ice within the next 24 hours. If you plan to travel, please consider the potential road conditions. Decisions regarding the status of the University – classes, events, etc. – will be announced under a separate email if needed.
