Parking & Transportation

Transportation

Hop on the MU Shuttle, sit back and relax. The shuttle is a convenient, cost-free way to travel between Main Campus, MU’s Ballston Center, and the Ballston Metro. The Metro lets you avoid traffic and make an environmentally sound choice. Metro’s new Silver Line puts you within steps of Marymount’s Reston Center.

You will need a Marymount ID Card before you apply for a parking permit. Student parking permits are divided into two categories: Resident (living in University sponsored housing) and Commuter. A permit does not guarantee that a parking space will be available. The conditions for using each type of permit are as follows:

Permits for Resident Students

  • Juniors and seniors living in the University residence halls on Main Campus can obtain a parking permit for the academic year. The permit fee for the 2015-16 academic year is $300.
  • Resident undergraduates with a current parking permit may park in the White Garage located under Lee Ostapenko Hall and in the Blue Garage located next to the Reinsch Library.
  • Students with less than 60 credits and living in the University residence halls on Main Campus will not be issued University parking permits.
  • Please note that students will be charged a $40 replacement fee for a lost permit. All parking permit payments are to be made at the Cashier’s Office located in Rowley Hall or through Marynet.

Permits for Commuter Students

  • Commuter students can purchase a permit for the academic year, at a total cost of $170, or on a per-semester basis for $85. The permit does not guarantee that a space will be available.
  • Commuter students may park in the main lot, the Blue Garage or the White Garage on main campus or in their designated garage near the 4040 Center.
  • Commuters may park any day between 6:30am-11pm while they are in classes, attending a University activity or are on University business.
  • Please note that students will be charged a $40 replacement fee for a lost permit. All parking permit payments are to be made at the Cashier’s Office located in Rowley Hall or through Marynet.

Applying for a Permit

To obtain a permit, you must come to the ID & Parking Office, Ireton Hall, in person.
For each vehicle you may use to park on campus or a University-designated satellite parking lot, you will be required to provide the ID and Parking Office with:
  • A valid motor vehicle registration;
  • Vehicle tag/plate state and number (available on motor vehicle registration documentation); and
  • Vehicle make (e.g. Ford, Chevy, Toyota), model (e.g. Focus, Malibu, Corolla) and color.

Please note: any vehicle parked at Marymount University must display a current Marymount University parking permit, temporary parking registration, or guest pass.

Vehicles failing to display these permits are subject to towing without prior notification to the vehicle’s owner. Marymount University assumes no responsibility for any towed vehicle.

Incomplete or incorrect information will result in delayed processing of your permit.

Use of the hang tag permit confirms you have received and will abide by the parking rules and regulations for the current academic year.
