Parking & 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. The Metro’s new Silver Line puts you within steps of Marymount’s Reston Center.


Marymount has several parking lots and garages available for students, faculty and staff with a valid MU parking permit. Click here for information about locations and permissions.
