William and Mary

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, 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. In addition to the Rules and Regulations, other 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, three 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.

4. 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.


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 = $30, multiple sets or locations = $40.

Daily space rates (reserved) = $13.50 per day, $8 evening only, $5 weekends

Metered Spaces = $.75/hr per space

Lot attendants = $15/hr regular time, $22.50/hr overtime, $30/hr holidays

Lot supervisor = $20/hr regular time, $30/hr overtime, $40/hr holidays

Barricades = $25 per set

 Event planners also have the option of purchasing custom passes for the event rather than reserving spaces, day passes are $5 ea. evening passes are $2 ea.
