Parking Exception Request

In accordance with University of Mary Washington’s Parking Regulations, some Resident students are restricted from obtaining a parking permit to park a vehicle on campus. A limited number of exceptions will be considered for a student’s own critical medical (not a family member’s) or financial (for work) need. Additional permits may be granted to Freshmen who live far from campus (view guidelines here: Freshman Long Distance Parking Procedures).

  • Applicants should be enrolled Freshmen.
  • Applicants are reminded of the Fredericksburg’s public transportation service, which is free to UMW students. Exceptions can be made for employment provided there is a need and public transportation schedule is not compatible with working hours. Exceptions will not be made for convenience purposes.
  • Submission of an application does not guarantee an exception to park on campus. Applicants should not bring a vehicle to campus unless they have been granted an exception and have purchased a permit.
  • Parking Management will determine the parking location for applicants who are granted an exception.
