ALL ROADS LEAD TO GROUNDS
We look forward to welcoming you to Grounds! Maps, directions, and general information about visiting UVA and Charlottesville are available on the University's Visit page.
Parking for All Sessions
Free parking for students and registered guests is at the Emmet/Ivy Parking Garage (EIG). Be sure to park here rather than another facility, as you will be ticketed or towed, or at least asked to pay the daily hourly rate.
First-Year Sessions (A, B, C, D, E, F, J)
After parking your car at the EIG, you can take a shuttle bus to check-in at the Alderman Road residence halls. Pack light; students should bring all belongings for their overnight stay with them on the shuttle bus. There will not be an opportunity to return to the garage until check-out the following day.
Incoming Transfer Sessions (G & H)
After parking your car at the EIG, you can take a shuttle bus to check-in at Old Cabell Hall. Note that while staying overnight is optional, students who have chosen to do so should bring all belongings for their stay on the shuttle bus, as there will not be an opportunity to return to the garage until check-out the following day.
Students sign in at Ern Commons on Day One of Session K to begin the move-in process at their assigned residence halls, and then have the remainder of the day to move in.
On Day Two, parents/guests can park at the EIG, and take a shuttle bus to check-in at Newcomb Hall. UTS buses will also provide service for students from residential areas to Central Grounds.
Handicapped parking information will be available at check-in for those who need it.
