The Thirteenth Annual Graduate Research Symposium (GRS) will take place on March 21 & 22, 2014 at the Sadler Center at the College of William & Mary (W&M).  From I-64, take Exit 238 (VA-143) and follow signs towards Williamsburg.  At the second set of stoplights, turn right onto VA-132.  At the next set of stoplights turn right onto Route 60 Bypass.  Follow Bypass Road to where it dead-ends at Richmond Road and turn left onto Richmond Road.  Turn right at the third set of stoplights to pull into the Walter J. Zable Stadium parking lot.  The Sadler Center is next to Zable Stadium.  Upon arriving at the Sadler Center you will need to go to the Registration desk and obtain a one day visitor parking pass.  Parking passes are only required for Friday.  With this pass, parking is available in front of Zable Stadium or anywhere else on campus with a validated visitor's parking permit.  The W&M Hall lot has Pay-by-Space Kiosks that you can also pay for the appropriate time. Those presenters parked in any space designed as "reserved" without a parking pass can receive a parking ticket up to $170.  There is limited free 2 hr parking available on Richmond Road.

Please see the following W&M Campus Maps for more information.
