Metered spaces, very few in number, are also available to visitors. Campus parking is regulated and closely enforced from Monday at 7:30am through Friday at 5:00pm. Other times, unless the spaces are subject to specific restrictions, campus parking is open to the public.
In many areas adjacent to the College, street parking is subject to certain restrictions. Read the signs carefully to avoid being ticketed.
Nearby free and paid parking is available in the Merchants Square area opposite College Corner.

Flight Travel

Three airports are convenient to Williamsburg: Richmond International Airport (RIC), Norfolk International Airport (ORF), and Newport News/Williamsburg Airport (PHF). Richmond and Norfolk are each about an hour from the College by car; Newport News is about 40 minutes. Keep in mind that there is a tunnel between Norfolk and Williamsburg, which can sometimes cause traffic delays. All airports offer shuttle service to Williamsburg and the College.

Train Travel

Amtrak offers train service to Williamsburg and can be a convenient way to travel from the northeast corridor. The station is about a fifteen-minute walk from College Corner.
