The Peer Scholarship Advisors office is in room 254C. Blow Hall is located on Richmond Road (on the Old Campus across from the Wawa). It's just south of the arrow on Google's map.

Visitors are encouraged to obtain a Visitor Parking Pass, available from Parking Services at 201 Ukrop Drive (next to Adair Hall) or from the circulation desk at Swem Library ($2 per day, $10 per week). With a Visitor Parking Pass, you can park in any campus space designated for visitors, faculty/staff, or students (unless restricted "at all times"); and, if appropriate, at any space reserved for the disabled.
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.
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.
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.
