Days on the Lawn #2 - Rain Plan in Effect!

There's a strong chance of rain tomorrow, so we are moving all Days on the Lawn events to their rain locations. Admission officers and student volunteers will be around to point you in the right direction, but just in case you find you way to Grounds without us, we'll be starting the day in Old Cabell Hall instead of outside at the Rotunda. Old Cabell is on the opposite end of the Lawn from the Rotunda.

The DOTL website has parking information, but I thought I'd revisit the parking situation for these events. We have rented the entire Emmet & Ivy Garage for DOTL. This is the garage behind the Cavalier Inn at the intersection of Emmet Street (aka Route 29) and Ivy Road. If you've been to UVa before, you've probably seen the playing field and tennis courts at this intersection. We have shuttle buses to take you from the garage to the Lawn.

If you visited UVa in the past, you probably parked in the Central Grounds Parking garage. That garage isn't big enough to accommodate everyone coming for Days on the Lawn.

Any questions about DOTL?

By the way, CavDog stays home when we move to the rain plan. Old Cabell Hall isn't pet friendly.

Not a fan of the rain plan.
