All packages from other carriers (UPS, FedEx, Airborne, etc.) will be delivered to the W&L Mail Services office.

Parking and Vehicle Registration

All Washington and Lee students, faculty and staff members, subject to certain restrictions, are permitted to own and operate motor vehicles at the University during the academic year. Due to construction projects anticipated during the academic year, some parking areas may not be fully available. Full cooperation of all drivers will be important, and we ask that you not bring motor vehicles to the campus unless absolutely necessary.
