Directions to Campus

Upon Your Arrival

Parking around campus can be difficult, even at the best of times. We strongly recommend that you allow extra time for driving and parking throughout the day. It is best to walk as much as possible.


We recommend parking at either the Kaplan Arena parking lot located on Compton Drive or at the parking garage located on Ukrop Way. Parking assistants will be stationed throughout the area to assist you with parking and directions. 

No parking is permitted at any time in the following areas:

Please remember that parking on off-campus streets (including Richmond Road) is controlled by the City of Williamsburg seven days/week, 24 hours/day. City street parking is enforced via color-coded decals. Do not park on streets that require residential decals. Visitors should pay attention to all campus and city signs related to parking restrictions.
