Parking Changes for the Spring Semester

West Campus
West Campus permits will not be sold due to discontinued spring semester shuttle service.  All permits are still valid at West Campus if needed.  A portion of the West Campus parking lot is blocked off. Valid Mason permits can be used to park in the parking spaces located on Rapidan River Road.

Rappahannock Parking Deck
The gates for the reserved levels (3 through 5) will remain lifted for the semester so an access card will not be required for entry.  A valid Rappahannock reserved permit is still required to park on reserved levels and will be enforced.

Freshmen Resident
Freshmen resident students will be able to purchase any permit except the General and Lot M/P permits.  Freshmen Residents may purchase the “Resident Lite” permit option, which is valid in Lots K, M, O, and P, due to West Campus permits not being available.

Off Campus Freshmen
Off Campus Freshmen may purchase the “General Lot” permit option, due to West Campus permits not being available.

Sophomore Residents
The “General Lot” permit option is available for purchase by Sophomore Residents

Short Term Parking
For students, faculty, and staff that do not require parking on campus on a regular basis, there are daily, weekly, and monthly options available online.  Hourly visitor parking is available in all parking garages at $3/hour with a $15 daily maximum. At the Field House Lots M & P is the lowest priced daily parking for $3/day which can be purchased online or using the ParkMobile app. A daily permit for General areas is also available online for $9/day as well as one for Lot K only for $6/day.
