Tips for a Great Visit before coming to UMW.

If you’d prefer to register for any event over the phone, call Admissions at 540/654-2000 or 800/468-5614. If you’d like to stop by, the Office of Admissions is located on the Fredericksburg campus in Lee Hall, Room 301. Office hours are Monday through Friday, 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. If the office is closed and you would still like to visit campus, check out the Self Guided Walking Tour. Directions to the Fredericksburg campus and a campus map can be found here.

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.
