All faculty, administrative personnel, classified and hourly employees of William & Mary and contract employees are eligible to register motor vehicles and purchase a permit under faculty/staff status.

Faculty and staff may park only in Faculty & Staff areas and Permit Only areas, such as the Kaplan Arena lot or the Law School overflow lot near the cemetery on South Henry Street.  Members of the faculty and staff are encouraged not to drive their vehicles point-to-point on campus.  The local Williamsburg Area Transit Authority (WATA) is free with W&M ID for cross-campus travel. (Law School to Main campus or Main to School of Ed., etc.)  For ADA accommodation, Transportation Services provides Main campus transport. 

Exception: Faculty may park in student spaces/areas if they need to teach a class or meet with a student and no faculty/staff spaces are available. Notify Parking Services at or 757-221-4764 of the time and location as soon as possible to preclude issue of a citation. Vehicle must be relocated upon completion of class.

Faculty and staff may register up to three (3) personally or family owned vehicles against a single hangtag. Multiple hangtag permits, if requested, will be sold at the full tiered price.  Second permits cannot be sold via payroll deductions. With the purchase of a hangtag, an additional motorcycle or convertible decal may be purchased at a discounted rate only.
