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 First-Year Sessions (A, B, C, D, E, F, J)
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. After parking your car at the EIG, you can take a shuttle bus to check-in at the Student Activities Building (SAB). Pack light, as 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.
Parking for Incoming Transfer Sessions (G & H)
Free parking for students and registered guests is also at the Emmet/Ivy Parking Garage (EIG) – see information above.
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.
Parking for Session K
Short-term parking will be available at Slaughter Recreation Center (505 Edgemont Road, Charlottesville VA 22903) for the check-in period only. Parking for the remainder of Session K will be at the Emmet/Ivy Parking Garage (EIG).
Handicapped parking information will be available at check-in for those who need it.
