About University of Mary Washington

The University of Mary Washington is one of Virginia’s outstanding public liberal arts universities, providing a superior education that inspires and enables our students to make positive changes in the world. 

Campus information

University of Mary Washington has two other nearby campuses: one in Stafford, Va., which caters to graduate and adult degree programs; and another in Dahlgren, Va., which offers continuing education and professional development courses for the region’s engineers, scientists and administrative professionals.

University of Mary Washington is located in Fredericksburg, Va., within an hour’s drive of both Washington, D.C., and Richmond, Va. 


The University of Mary Washington believes that living on campus is an integral part of a student’s complete educational experience; therefore, all full-time students who are admitted as residential students in their first year are required to live on campus for two full academic years.

Exceptions may be made for students who:

  • are married
  • are 23 years of age or older before the first day of the fall semester
  • have dependent children living with them
  • are living with a parent, grandparent, or guardian within 30 miles of the University of Mary Washington
  • have a college-endorsed internship or clinical placement, or are student teaching outside the Fredericksburg area (approved by UMW Academic Affairs)

To be granted an exception for reasons other than those listed, the applicant must be very specific and extensive in his or her explanation of the significant, uncontrollable, and unforeseen extenuating circumstances.
