Parking Eligibility

William & Mary students who have completed 4 regular semesters, and have achieved social class status of Junior or Senior, as well as William & Mary faculty and staff members, commuting students, and campus contractors are eligible to purchase a William & Mary parking permit.

Parking Enforcement

Parking enforcement rules are in effect 24 hours a day beginning Monday at 7:00 AM through Friday at 5:00 PM, Decals or passes are required to park on campus. Once purchased you must park according to your decal in properly marked spaces.

VIMS faculty, staff, and students may park at the Kaplan Arena Lot, the Facilities Plant lot  and the Law School overflow lot near the cemetery on South Henry Street with a teal VIMS decal. In order to park elsewhere on campus, you must obtain a temporary pass or replace your decal with the appropriate W&M Main campus decal (replacement fee applies).

How we develop regulations

The motor vehicle regulations have been developed by the Office of Parking Services with the advice of the Parking Advisory Committee and have been approved by the Board of Visitors. The regulations are applicable to all persons owning and/or operating a motor vehicle on the Williamsburg and Virginia Institute of Marine Science campuses of William & Mary. Accordingly, jurisdiction extends to all university roads and grounds.

The fine print

Please secure your vehicle at all times. William & Mary does not assume responsibility for motor vehicles or their content while operated or parked on university property.
