Faculty & Staff Parking

Registering for Parking

All benefit-eligible faculty and staff must sign-up for and cancel parking privileges by completing the Parking Payroll Deduction From (PDF), and submitting to Parking Services at [email protected]. When signing up for parking, employees must provide valid vehicle information (license plate state and number, vehicle make/model/color/year). Arrangements for an employee's parking must be made by the faculty or staff member and cannot be made by another staff member or by a department. Parking at South Hall or Shenkman Hall requires a separate transponder to access the parking garage.  There is a $50 refundable deposit for the South Hall and Shenkman Hall transponders.

Canceling Parking

To stop payroll deductions for parking, complete a Parking Termination Form (PDF) and turn it in to Parking Services at [email protected]. Faculty members who do not wish to have parking privileges during the summer months or while on sabbatical, still have to submit the termination form to cancel parking.

Personnel in a Leave of Absence or Leave Without Pay status (LOA/LWOP)

When an employee is placed in a LOA/LWOP status, regardless of the reason, it is the employee's responsibility to contact Parking Services at the beginning of the leave period to ensure parking payroll deductions are suspended/terminated. The processing of personnel forms does not complete this process. If an employee fails to cancel parking, accrued payments will be applied upon return from LOA/LWOP for the period in which no payroll deductions were made. No exceptions will be made regarding collection of fees due upon return from leave. Employees who cancel their parking will be given first priority on the waiting list if a space is not available upon return.


Personnel who are retiring during the academic term and have payroll deductions for parking should notify Parking Services prior to retirement.

Mount Vernon Campus

Mount Vernon campus parking permits are restricted to Faculty and Staff members who primarily work or have offices located on the Mount Vernon campus. 

In an effort to better utilize the available parking on the Mount Vernon Campus and support the neighboring community, Parking Services will now be providing the first three (3) hours of parking for free in the MVC parking garage for all students, faculty, staff, and visitors. Garage parking is still free on weekends (Sat 12am – Sun 11:59pm). 

Please note that parking on Whitehaven Pkwy NW is reserved for St. Patrick’s Episcopal Church and Day School.   Parking on the roads and fire lanes on campus is also prohibited.

Dual Campus Parking

If you are a parking permit holder at either Foggy Bottom or Mount Vernon, you may be eligible to park at both campuses for no extra fee if you conduct university business at both locations on a routine basis. Please review and fill out the Dual Campus Parking Access Request Form and permit holders who are approved for dual parking rights will receive additional information about access and parking locations. Please note that your primary parking location must be where you conduct the majority of your university business. 

Virginia Science and Technology Campus

Daily parking is available at no charge for VSTC students, faculty and staff at the campus.

GW Carpool Incentive

If you are interested in carpooling initiatives please email [email protected].

Registered carpoolers with Parking Services pay $158 per month on the Foggy Bottom campus, and $120 per month on the Mount Vernon campus.  Mount Vernon campus carpoolers must primarily work or have offices located on the Mount Vernon campus. 

A carpool is an arrangement among a group of automobile owners by which each owner, in turn, drives the other to and from a designated place, in this case, work at GW. In order to receive GW's carpool incentive, two or more benefit-eligible GW employees must be signed up for the program. Carpoolers must ride together for at least 50% of the days you commute and both of you must be in the car for half of your commute. Parking fees will be paid via payroll deduction and the fee will be divided equally amongst the registered carpoolers.

A $50 refundable deposit is required for the access device that permits entry and exit into the carpool’s assigned parking garage. Only one access device will be issued per carpool.  Individuals within the carpool will still be able to utilize discounted occasional parking with their GWorld card in the event they have to drive separately.

Monthly Parking Permits

Once a Monthly Parking Permit is obtained, the parker will be assigned a garage and may only park in this assigned location. Staff must use their GWorld card to access garages.  Only benefit-eligible faculty and staff are eligible to participate in the payroll deduction parking program.

Occasional Parking 

GWorld Debit Parkers can park in any parking garage designated for occasional parking and must use their GWorld for access. A minimum $16.50 is required on their GWorld in order to gain access as an occasional parker. Failure to meet this requirement will result in paying daily visitor rates. 

For ADA parking arrangements 8am–5pm, contact Parking Services at (202) 994-7199 or [email protected]. For ADA accommodations related to monthly permits contact [email protected].
