Attire: The university's stated practice has been, and continues to be, that individuals or groups not affiliated with the university may not use our campus as a platform for their own personal or political displays or statements. This includes, but is not limited to, historical or replica uniforms.
Security Measures: Visitors will be asked to open large bags or purses for inspection by the Public Safety Officer on duty. Additionally, all visitors to campus must comply with the University weapons policy, which prohibits the use, possession and storage of all firearms, dangerous weapons, explosives or other dangerous articles on all properties owned, leased or otherwise controlled by Washington and Lee University. Law enforcement officers duly authorized to carry such instruments are excepted.
Flags: University policy does not allow flags on campus.
Photography: The Museums staff wants to insure you enjoy your visit to the Chapel and share the experience with your friends. In order to make it a pleasant experience for all our visitors and to protect the parts of our collection that are under copyright, the photography policy must be observed.
All tours are free of charge, though they are self-guided.
If you are traveling by motor coach, there is no available parking at the University Chapel. Riders may be discharged on Jefferson St. in front of the entrance and handicapped individuals may be let off on Letcher Avenue, but in both cases, the bus will need to park elsewhere until the tour is over. Please contact the Lexington Visitor Center for suggested bus parking.
