Student Services and Parking

Student Health Insurance 
The Student Health Center website has complete information about your Health Center Services and options.

Marymount graduate students taking nine or more credit hours are required to either show proof of existing health insurance coverage or purchase a student health insurance plan through the university. Please note that you will be automatically enrolled in Marymount’s student health insurance plan unless you provide a waiver demonstrating that you already have coverage.

Students with Access Needs
Marymount’s Office of Student Access Services assists students with documented physical, learning, or psychological disabilities. Students who desire accommodations should contact the director of Student Access Services at 703-526-6925 or email as soon as possible. Students who qualify for services may request them at any point during their enrollment at Marymount.

Obtaining a Parking Permit 
In order to obtain your new parking permit, you will be required to provide a valid driver’s license to the ID and Parking Office, located in Ireton Hall on Main Campus.

For each vehicle you may use to park on campus or at a university-designated satellite parking lot, you will be required to provide a valid motor vehicle registration; vehicle tag/plate state and number; and vehicle make (e.g. Ford, Chevy, Toyota) model (e.g. Focus, Malibu, Corolla), and color.

Any vehicle parked at Marymount University or a university-designated satellite parking lot must display a current Marymount University parking permit, temporary parking permit, or guest pass. Vehicles failing to display these permits are subject to towing without prior notification to the vehicle’s owner. Marymount University assumes no responsibility for any towed vehicle.

The cost of your permit will be billed to your student account and is only payable at the Cashier’s office on Main Campus.

The permit does not guarantee that a space will be available. For further parking information, please call (703) 284-5700.

  • the Main Parking lot (in front of The Lodge), with the exception of reserved and handicapped spaces.
