Special Events

Special events on campus throughout the year require that special accommodations for parking be implemented at times. Such events include, but are not limited to, athletic events, Charter Day, Commencement, Colonial Relays, convocations, construction and parking lot maintenance activities, and move-in and move-out periods.

Conference parking, special events parking and all temporary parking requirements of the College are to be scheduled and approved through Parking Services by the College sponsor and/or host. Media such as e-mail, newspaper notification, flyers, and signage will be used to provide the College community with adequate notice so that alternate parking plans can be made. Whenever possible, five(5) days notice will be given to the College community regarding special events. Individuals should be alert to posted notices and signage because vehicles in violation may be ticketed and are subject to be towed at the owner’s expense.

In general Special Events may require entire lots or just a few reserved spaces. When reserving spaces we make every effort not to displace faculty, staff, and students during the normal academic sessions. Metered and times spaces are used instead to the maximum extent possible. However, depending on the event we may have to take non-metered spaces. In such cases, we apologize for any inconvenience and ask for your cooperation in following the designated parking regulations in place for that event.

Fees

For special events or programs requiring additional support from parking staff such as reserved spaces, lot and traffic management, signage, security and enforcement, additional fees may be assessed regardless of the day of the week the event is held. Please work with William & Mary Conference & Event Services to coordinate your event.

The following fees are in place for those planning an event involving on-campus parking. Special Event fees are assessed dependent on the requirements of the event, lead time and ability to support.
  • Signage = set of 1-5 single location = $35, multiple sets or locations = $45.
  • Daily space rates (reserved) = $14 per day, $8.50 evening only, $6 weekends
  • Metered Spaces = $1.00 - $1.50/hr per space (based on location)
  • Lot attendants = $16/hr regular time, $24/hr overtime, $32/hr holidays
  • Lot supervisor = $21hr regular time, $31.50/hr overtime, $42/hr holidays
  • Barricades = $26 per set
  • Barrels = $6 each
  • Cones = $1 each

Event planners also have the option of purchasing custom passes for the event rather than reserving spaces, day passes are $6 each, evening passes are $3 each. Non-affiliated group day passes are $9 ea. and evening passes are $4.50 ea. Evening passes are used for events after 3 P.M.
