DIRECTIONS from Interstate 81, please use the following exits:
  • Northbound traffic uses Exit 240 or 243. Take Route 11 north to get to JMU. There are many parking options just off of Route 11 (Main Street north of Port Republic Road and south of Martin Luther King Jr. Way.) If you are able to walk, this is a great option with less traffic and a lovely short walk to the stadium or Quad areas.

  • Southbound traffic uses Exit 251. Take Route 11 south to get to JMU. You will travel through our downtown area filled with restaurants and shops. Parking is plentiful off of Route 11 (Main Street just south of Martin Luther King Jr. Way and north of Port Republic Road.) You will have much less traffic and travel time and it's a lovely walk through the Quad to get to the stadium.
