Yes, a student ID (Lancer Card) is necessary to access library materials, to access your assigned residence hall, university events or to gain entrance into the Dining Hall.
Photo identification should be carried at all times and presented if requested by a Longwood official. The Lancer Card Center is located on our main campus in Lancaster G-22A (ground floor, near the Residential & Commuter Life office).

DO NOT PUNCH HOLES IN OR BEND YOUR LANCER CARD...this will damage the wiring that is concealed inside the card.
Residents that attended the New Student Orientation and Registration during the summer will be issued their student ID, upon arrival at their assigned residence hall/apartment community. Students that didn't attend New Student Orientation during the summer should go to the Lancer Card Center located in Lancaster G-22A during weekday operation hours or during the fall opening weekend operation hours.
I am an Upper-class Main Campus Residential student. Where do I park?
You will be assigned a resident student parking permit and will be allowed to park in any resident student parking lots.
I am a Freshman, resident student. I want to have my car at school for a few days. What do I do? Who do I contact?
Freshman students residing on campus are restricted from having a vehicle at Longwood. In some instances, a Freshman may be granted permission to have a car however the student must have a valid reason for such a request. The Parking Services Manager will review the student's written request and will render a decision. A written permission letter will be issued to applicants with accepted situations. Most permissions are granted on a temporary basis with a specific timeframe. Parking for a Freshman with permission to have a car at school will be located at the Main Street Lot.
I live at Lancer Park and have a Lancer Park decal on my car. Can I park my car on the main campus?
Sorry, no. Lancer Park residents must keep their vehicles in the parking area at Lancer Park. Decal enforcement takes place Monday through Friday from 6:00 am until 5:30 pm. You may come to campus 5:30 pm - 2:30 am for classes, the use of academic buildings or to attend club functions, however, you must avoid all prohibited zones as they are enforced at all times. Vehicles still on the main campus at 6:00 am will be ticketed or towed. It is strongly encouraged that students make use of the shuttle bus service rather than moving their cars. This service runs every ½ hour. See the schedule posted on our website. (Student athletes in Division 1 sports residing at Lancer Park are exceptions to this rule.)
I am a resident student living at Longwood Landings. Where do I park?
Living at Longwood Landings is the same as living in a residence hall on the main campus. You will be assigned a resident student parking permit and will be allowed to park in any resident student parking lots. There are two lots immediately in the area of Landings, the South Lot by Putney Street; and the Virginia Street Lot at the rear of the complex. Also, students may use the Vernon Street Lot. Please avoid parking in the retail space of Midtown Square as these spaces are not controlled by the University and towing is likely to occur.
I am a resident at Longwood Village. Where do I park?
As a resident student located at Longwood Village, you will be considered as a commuter in relation to your parking assignment on campus. You will purchase and receive a commuter decal and park in the appropriate commuter areas.
