If you’d like to stop by, the Office of Admissions is located on the Fredericksburg campus in Lee Hall Room 301.

Planning to stay overnight to explore UMW and Fredericksburg? UMW does not maintain a separate listing of hotel accommodations. However, the Fredericksburg Visitors Center Web Site has a listing of nearby hotels, motels, bed and breakfasts, lodges and inns. Many of these hotel accommodations are located within 2 miles of the campus. You will also find information about local historic sites, restaurants, and other area attractions.
