We have additional limited parking in two small parking lots, one lot at the Frances Plecker Education Center, 780 University Blvd, and another close to our Pavilion and Family Garden. Both lots are accessible through stone-column, wrought-iron gated entry drives on University Blvd. between Carrier Dr. and Driver Dr., without a JMU Parking Permit (permit) and open from dawn till dusk.

The Arboretum and all Arboretum parking lots close at dusk daily.

There is no parking allowed along University Blvd.
