Parking Information

Parking will be allowed on the Parade Ground, weather permitting, for all activities.

Please pay attention to traffic pattern for the departure of cadets after Commencement.  The area in front of Barracks will be congested with all of the cadets trying to depart.  Vehicles should remain parked on the Parade Ground, when possible, and the cadet’s belongings carried to the vehicle.  The VMI Police need your assistance and patience to ensure that the cadet departure is accomplished in the quickest and safest manner possible.
