MAY 2017

  •  “I really appreciate the great support in finding a meeting room on very short notice.”
  • “The staff at UMW Dahlgren Campus is extraordinary. Every need of ours was met with courtesy and professionalism. Outstanding job!”
  • “Thank you for allowing us to use your facility for our preschool graduation ceremony! It is our hope that OUR graduates come full circle and become YOUR graduates in due time! I’d especially like to thank the client relations manager for her support as I worked through the details of our. ceremony and the technical assistance we received from the. university’s staff!! We are already looking forward to next year’s ceremony!! Thanks again!!!!”
  • “I ran a challenging IPT Workshop covering state of the art and emerging technologies pertaining to unmanned systems at your Dahlgren facility. Your staff and your facilities manager were more than helpful and able to accommodate all of our workshop needs and requests without exception. I am very proud to see that my Alma mater has established itself in my town of King George with such a prominent and state of the art facility.
    Keep up the spectacular work UMW!”
  • “The staff provided exceptional service and was available to help or answer any questions we have. They provided us with great service and always with a smile. This made our Awards Ceremony a big success. Thanks for all you do.”
  • “UMW Dahlgren Campus is the facility in the area for technical presentation/meeting, training, and workshop events. The UMW personnel are very helpful in addressing questions/concerns; they are friendly and provide necessary support during the events. So far, all the visitors were impressed with UMW facility; it’s nice, clean and has the latest classroom equipment, computer lab, and WIFI. Thank you.”
  • “Could not easily project a laptop’s screen, overhead lights kept timing out, and had to move around to find a good network connection. Perhaps there’s more of a conference room available than a classroom? If so, I’ll set up our next meeting there again.”
  • “Entire Staff was great.”

APRIL 2017

  • “The classroom was clean, orderly and equipment was operational.”
  •  “Used University Hall to conduct a formal review panel for System Requirements. Only comment I heard about the forum – difficult for members seated in the auditorium to hear when panel members (seated up front) asked questions or held discussions. If microphones could be added to tables in this setting, it would greatly add to attendees hearing, etc.”
  • “It would be great if there were more hard line network drops for the guests to plug into. Also, small nuisance – the lights kept going off then coming back on. We think there may have been a motion sensor at work. Most of us were sitting down talking and it didn’t seem to sense us. We never figured out where exactly the motion sensor was.”
  • “Always a pleasure to hold JobZone’s events at the UMW. The staff is continually helpful and pleasant to work with. Since we are there at least 2 times per year, the classroom always follows the DRAFT floor plan forwarded to the staff for setup which allows us to have a successful event. Thank you so much, UMW. Janet L. Giles/JobZone.”

MARCH 2017

  • “For our large group presentations – the MWC campus is becoming our go to approach. The environment is up to date, modern and conducive to better meetings and presentations. Additionally, having sufficient parking and not having to work around delays that are often associated with meetings on NSWC Dahlgren has resulted in continual positive comments from our visiting sponsors and guests.”
  • “In early March, I taught a three day short course at the UMW Dahlgren Campus. This was the third short course that I have taught at this facility in the last few years. The facility as well as the staff have been just outstanding. I highly recommend the UMW Dahlgren Campus and plan to schedule additional short courses here in the future. Dr. Carl Dyka, NSWC-Dahlgren.”
  • “Amazing! I can’t say enough about the support and help with staff. It was a complete pleasure and I will highly recommend this facility for future meetings!”

  • “As always, the staff at UMW-Dahlgren handled all of our requests with patience, positivity, and a cheerful smile. It made two days of meetings a pleasant experience.”
  • “The first day we were there we were able to sign onto the internet through wifi. However, 30 minutes later we were kicked out and could never connect again for the entire day. The second day we hard wired into the internet and though we were informed that the internet issue had been fixed we were unable to connect for the entire day.”


  • “I’m the event coordinator for our company and we always have such a great experience with the team. Feedback about the facility, service and food was all highly positive. Thanks again for another successful meeting!”
  • “Your staff was extremely friendly, supportive and helpful. Your facilities and the general environment of your building made it an excellent place to conduct a meeting.”


  • “We hosted a large event for approximately 100 people from Government, university, and private industry. I received so many compliments on the condition of the facility and the overall satisfaction with the location. I would certainly recommend the UMW Dahlgren Campus to anyone searching for a site to hold meetings, classes, or other functions.”
  • “The UMW Dahlgren campus space itself is so wonderfully built and equipped – it really was wonderful to be able to host some of our trainings at this venue.”
  • “As always, the building was spotless, University Hall was set up exactly to our specifications, and the staff was wonderful. It is always a pleasure to have events at the University of Mary Washington, Dahlgren campus.”


  •  “Fantastic all around. I had a nice clean spacious room with all required items at my fingertips. Initial help understanding all the capabilities of the classroom. Staff even checked in to make sure we were happy. Thank you, I will be back soon.”
  • “The entire UMW team was very helpful in ensuring our meeting was a success. Each of the attendees commented on how professional the space was and accommodating the venue was for the type of meeting we held.”
  • “An ideal location for a large training event.”
  • “My experience was perfect. I received timely feedback from my request, and then a walkthrough so I knew what to expect and the detail of the facility. We had what we needed, IT worked, and all was as expected.”


  • “We hosted a training at UMW – Dahlgren. Very nice facility. Staff was very friendly. IT handled questions promptly.”
  • “The facility was first rate, as was the support. I cannot speak highly enough of either. The 32-person classroom had excellent computer and A/V support, combined with more-than-adequate whiteboard space. Moreover, the staff locked the room at night for us, allowing students to store course materials in the room. Beyond the functionality, the aesthetic was also positive. The room was new, clean, and well-lit, enabling a positive learning experience for the attendees. Thank you for renting the room to us for our use last week.”
  • “We always get the best service. Everyone is always so nice and accommodating. Definitely recommend to colleagues and friends. We appreciate you.”

  • “The staff support was great. The classroom was set up for the event before I arrived and any support I needed during the event was met.”
  • “Staff is easy to work with and very professional.”
  • ” The classroom we used (154) had two big screen TVs, but a big projector will be a better option. Also the classroom setup makes it feel like the room is too crowded.”
  • “This feedback is in reference to an industry day held on July 15th 2016. The facilities and staff provided for the event enabled us to successfully carry out the industry day activities with no issues.”
  •  “The class was clean and the technology was more than satisfactory.”
  •  “UMW facilities at the Dahlgren Campus were first-rate and the staff extremely helpful….thanks for making our training event a huge success!”

JULY 2016

  • “The staff at UMW was fantastic as always! My boss and the out of town visitors were all very impressed with the staff and the facilities.”
  • Customer services was outstanding as usual. Questions were answered promptly and reception was warm. Thank you again for making our event something others were in awe of (facility, amenities, location and team).”
  • I was able to set up a meeting very quickly (with only a day or two notice ahead of time), which was great for us. I had a small meeting (7 people) and I asked for an executive conference room. I was given a classroom. Not sure if executive conf room was not available or you don’t allow people to use that room. Classroom was fine, but would have preferred the conference room set up.”
