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, and move-in and move-out periods.

We encourage departments to reach out and schedule event support as far in advance as possible to avoid scheduling conflicts and for most efficient service. Please fill out the form below and one of our team members will be in touch!

Request Event Support

Conference parking, special events parking and all temporary parking requirements of the university are to be scheduled and approved through Parking Services by the university sponsor and/or host.

For exceptional cases event planners also have the option of purchasing time in visitor lots newly installed around campus.  Please email for more details if paying with an index or simply pay for time with the app and your visitors license plate using a credit card.

Athletics is an integral part of the educational experience at William & Mary. W&M Athletics is bodly pursuing excellence and strives to deliver a holistic experience with high standards of performance; providing an environment where champions of uncompromising character, fully engaged with campus and the community, prepare to make a positive impact in a complex and changing world.



University Events

Homecoming (Oct), W&M Charter Day (Feb), Colonial Relays (Apr), Commencement Ceremonies (May), Neighboring County HS graduations (June), BOV Sessions (Sep, Nov, Feb, and Apr). Signs will be posted to designate the affected areas. Vehicles in violation may be towed at owner’s expense.

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. Passport zones and metered spaces are used instead to the maximum extent possible. However, depending on the event we may have to take non-metered spaces. In such cases, we apologize for any inconvenience and ask for your cooperation in following the designated parking regulations in place for that event.
