You do not need a parking pass to park in a parking lot. All parking is first-come first-serve. 

In the event of inclement weather, there will be no parking at the Schwartz Athletic Center. For both ceremonies, the parking lot adjacent to Old Main is restricted. Student assistants will be at each parking lot to offer walking directions to the Schwartz Athletic Center in the case of rain. In addition, shuttle buses will run from all of the parking lots to Schwartz Athletic Center if we have inclement weather.


There are many convenient accommodations nearby. We recommend the Best Western Widener Hotel and Suites, which is located at 1450 Providence Avenue in Chester. It is within walking distance of campus. Book your room online at or call 610-872-8100. Be sure to ask for the Widener University discount.
