The Fredericksburg City Council passed ordinances in late June that will impact UMW athletic event parking effective August 16, 2018.
A Resident Permit Parking (RPP) program is being implemented in the College Heights, College Heights South, and College Terrace neighborhoods. In order to legally park on streets designated as RPP (as noted by signage) Monday thru Friday, 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. as well as Saturday from 7 a.m. to 4 p.m., cars must display a resident permit sticker.
While the athletic fields side of Hanover Street will remain open parking, the College Heights side will be resident parking only.
On athletic event game days, fans are encouraged to park in the parking lots adjacent to the grass soccer fields, at the tennis center, and on Hanover Street on the facility side of the street. Spectators may park at the Facilities Services building on weekends ONLY.
Turf field (field hockey) - enter the shell trail at the facility plant, and park in the spots near the flag pole at the end of the field. Please park clear of the trail, as it is used for emergency vehicles.
Grass field (soccer) - park at the far end of the field near the scoreboard and comfort station in the gravel lot. This lot is ONLY to be used by coaches, administrators, and officials.
Buses are to park at the facilities services building on the grassy area to the left of the building. Follow parking signs.
Please review these changes in light of where you normally park and plan accordingly.
