  • ‘The UMW-Dahlgren campus continues to provide a first rate facility and a very professional workforce in support of technical meetings. In the past few months we have had the requirement/sometimes at the last minute to host technical meetings. In every case the UMW-Dahlgren staff and facilities have come through and each meeting was highly successful. Each time our visitors had very positive comments on the first rate staff and facilities. Thank you very much for your support. NSWCDD-K93.” May 2015

Thank you for making it such a great experience.” February 2015
  • “The “away from office” setting was ideal for the meeting I coordinated. Additionally, the cleanliness and “newness” of the facility provided a professional atmosphere. The 10 minute walk thru of the facility the day prior to my meeting provided me insight into the environment that was also beneficial. Example: in the kitchen area, there is a single cup Keurig coffee machine that an individual can purchase (via vending machine immediately adjacent) coffee servings. The awareness of this enabled me to purchase a box of coffee for my attendees.” February 2015

  • “I think the facility is great and the staff is outstanding. Assume I wrote 5 paragraphs of rave review here :) Now for the constructive feedback:
  • “Sometimes we are working as a group and need the ability to connect a computer not at the podium to the displays – a longer cable or extension would greatly help that rather than having each person unplug from their seat and move their laptop up to the instructor’s podium.  Also, sometimes not all network jacks are active (in the floor), but the IT staff is always willing to solve the problems when asked – I’m not sure if this is explicitly stated anywhere in the information provided to meeting organizers.” November 2014
  • “Thank you for your excellent and cordial service!” November 2014
  • “Very clean, fresh and inviting facility.” November 2014
  • “Great Service! Always willing to accommodate in any way possible! Great Staff!” October 2014
  • “I really appreciate that the temperature of the room is always perfect. Too many facilities keep it way too cold. Still an issue is the fact that the lights will not remain on for more than 20 minutes at a time. This does create a constant disruption during the presentations. It would be nice if this could be fixed once and for all.” October 2014
  • “Awesome!!!!! We definitely will be back. Thanks again to everyone who helped to make our meeting a success.” October 2014
  • “It was difficult for participants on the telephone to hear everyone in the room (Room 158).  Participants could hear some people but not others, seems like it was dependent as to where the person speaking was in the room.” October 2014
  • “Thank you for helping ensure our event went off without a hitch!” September 2014
  • “Helpful and accommodating! The staff at UMW Dahlgren are the most professional people I have ever worked with. They ensure that all details are taken care of and ask the right questions to make sure that the event/meeting planners don’t forget anything. I can’t imagine working with a better group of people! Awesome!!” September 2014
  • “The instructor was unsuccessful in connecting his iPad to RM 160’s projection system and we had to go to a backup (copy of brief on thumb drive connected to the room’s PC).  No significant impact, but you might want to look into what could be done in the future to accommodate this type of device.” September 2014
  • “The staff at UMW Dahlgren Campus is outstanding!” September 2014
  • “None of the displays except the central projector appear to be compatible with Macintosh computers. When plugging in the computer using the VGA cable (via an adapter), all the other displays flash between black and the display constantly. We mitigated the problem by turning off all the other screens, since we really only needed the one projector in the center. A solution for this would be helpful, but not necessary.” September 2014
  • “Although all of the equipment was present in University Hall, there was not interface to synchronize the internet listeners with the audio in the hall. As digital media and Voice Over Internet Protocols (VOIP) continue to grow it would be a huge benefit to future users particularly in DoD to be able to offer remote participation through the use of internet using applications like Skype for private industry and Defense Connect Online (DCO) for the DoD customers. Ideally, the capability to output audio and video signals from the camera and microphones in the hall as inputs to the computer in the hall would be allow presentations to reach a wider audience and set the conditions to record the sessions for review for quality and for those unable to attend when the event was held.” August 2014
  • “Nice facility overall. It’s great that the rooms can be rearranged to meet the needs of the meeting. Staff was very helpful when we needed assistance.” August 2014
  • “Had a large group (95) in attendance sitting classroom style. The microphone sounded muffled and was difficult to hear in the back of the room. Sounds were loud enough, but could not be heard clearly. Not sure if the mic needs to be adjusted, or better directions given to those using thermic. Parking was a real issue. Heard many complaints from our group as well as other students/visitors coming in the front door, about parking on the grass and driving around for a while until they could find something. Not sure what could be done to help the situation, may want to keep that in mind whenever you book large events.” August 2014
  • “Stellar! Provided just the right atmosphere, technical capabilities, and service for our office training – THANKS!” August 2014
  • “The microphone on the podium does not work with everyone’s voice. Some had a terrible ringing in the background, which was distracting. The space is great though and the staff is very helpful is making sure we had everything we needed for the event!” August 2014
  • “Outstanding like usual.” July 2014
  • “Please make sure that the classrooms are equipped to use Defense Connection Online (DCO). It makes it easier for our individual’s in other states who cannot attend. Thank you!” June 2014

  • “Excellent service as always.” May 2014
  • “Great environment and professional support throughout our event.” May 2014
  • “The classrooms were very nice, and just the right size for my events. The only issue I had was with some of the audio-visual equipment in room 258, where the main projector lost its input unexpectedly and the overall system conducted a hard reset on its own. The people downstairs were able to correct the issue in a timely manner, which was good. Other than that, I really enjoyed the space provided by UMW and will definitely use it in the future for meetings.” May 2014

I have to tell you that I thought your staff was top notch and the facilities put most of the other campuses to shame. It was welcoming and highly conducive to learning. Thank you for allowing us to use this facility.” November 2013

  • “Facility is superb. Staff was over the top in its help. Might want to get the lighting system fixed in room 148.” November 2013
  • “I hosted a meeting in the 271 conference room. It’s a really professional room and I really like utilizing the UMW-Dahlgren facility whenever I host an event. The Dahlgren lab conference facilities are old, poorly equipped and terrible looking and in most cases. In addition, getting visitors on base has become a quest due largely to personnel changes at the main gate. Your facility provides a much needed solution to these two problems.” October 2013
  • “Facilities were very comfortable. Staff was very helpful – supported testing of compatibility with VTC another site prior to class and assisted in overcoming communication issues with remote students when the class started.” October 2013
  • “The facility is so nice and everyone really enjoyed the food. The staff was extremely helpful and very easy to work with.

  • “MW provided a great meeting space.” October 2013
  • “MW-Dahlgren was very accommodating, and our event was a success as a result. Thanks to all the staff involved in meeting our event requests. We will definitely reserve space again.” September 2013

I could not imagine working with a more professional group of people. Simply the best!!” September 2013

  • “The facilities and the staff were top notch and I will not hesitate to hold similar events at the UMW Dahlgren campus in the future.

  • “Everything went very well for our MAC Dinner. Staff was exceptional, responsive and the event went smoothly.” August 2013
  • “Facility and resources were more than adequate to conduct the Design Review Meeting with our Sponsor. Staff was very attentive and supportive of last minute requirements.” August 2013
  • “We did have an issue with the room assignment. I had received an email stating the room had been changed. After notifying the participants that the room had changed, when we showed up for our meeting, the room assignment at the entrance listed the original room number. Neither classroom was being used and it ultimately ended up causing confusion with part if the attendees going to one room and the other part going to the other. Luckily, we had a smaller meeting. Had this been on a larger scale it could have caused delays and problems.” August 2013
  • “The purpose of utilizing your facility was to host an event doe my agency. The staff support was wonderful before, during and after the event.” August 2013
  • “Very helpful staff.” August 2013
  • “The staff was exceptional!; the successful atmosphere and design of the building served as a real example of how to create success in human life!; consider creating a list of the ways in which the building is LEED Certified. Provide that list to clients/building users; I strongly recommend that the plans for a research facility be re-thought. For example, a convention center like approach can serve the area and broader region. I would have an auditorium that can hold 3,000 people.  This would be good for concerts, national events, etc. I have many more ideas about this concept and would be happy to make a presentation about them! “ July 2013  
  • “Awesome! Just awesome! We had planned for a maximum of 100 attendees, and ended up having over 140. Things got a bit hectic once we reached capacity, but the staff handled everything so smoothly from getting more chairs, to making more copies, etc. I will definitely be recommending any personnel here when they are in search of a venue. Thank you so much!” June 2013

I was unable to locate an on-base conference room that could support the re-occurring meeting, however UMW-Dahlgren has had not issues providing me the room. For this meeting I utilize DCO to meet with other locations outside Dahlgren, and find that the telecommunications equipment in the UMW-Dahlgren Facility far exceed my requirements. I plan to continue to use the facility for additional re-occurring meeting with web-conferencing requirement.” June 2013
  • “Great facility, wonderful staff.” June 2013

  • “We were very pleased with the accommodations and the way in which the staff worked with us. On the front end, the staff responded to emails and telephone calls quickly. When we met with the staff to finalize the room setup, equipment needs, etc., the staff was very helpful with suggestions and also in showing us where everything was located. On the day of our forum, the staff was right there to help, yet did not interfere with the program in any way. Overall a wonderful experience. Well done!” May 2013

  • “We were in room 272 and while the equipment was fantastic, the layout wasn’t as good. It would be better if there was more room between the rows and, if possible, room to take notes as well as use the computers. Assuming that room is regularly used for hands on training courses, it needs to be rearranged such that a student can have a monitor, keyboard, book, and paper for notes available during a class.” March 2013
  • “Through my own fault, and that not of your staff, I did give your staff a CD to pre-test prior to using the morning of my event. Consequently, the music was not compatible and would not play on the sounds system on the podium. Your staff saved the day by downloading the National Anthem for me on his iPhone and played it through the system. I mentioned this for two reasons: (1) to give kudos to your staff for quick thinking and (2) to use my experience to warn other non-techs who may think that all audios or visuals will work anywhere. Thank you.” March 2013
  • “It was very nice, very professional, and very well done. The ability to have an effective meeting without a pile of paperwork was wonderful. I plan on having more meetings there.” March 2013
  • “Everyone I met was friendly and kind. Very professional.” February 2013

  • “We provided you with about 24 hours notice that we were in need of VTC capabilities for a presentation. You responded promptly and enabled us to carry out our requirement. I appreciate your working with us on such a short notice. All of the staff was very helpful. Thank you!” February 2013

  • “Good atmosphere, close to NSWCDL is key.” January 2013

  • “Whenever anyone needs help, there is never anyone at the front desk to help me or others out. We’re either sitting/standing at the front desk to wait for someone to help us, or we’re graciously helped by Old Dominion University. However, when Old Dominion University tries to help me or anyone, they can never find or get ahold of anyone in the building! It is very frustrating, and not an image that should be displayed in a high profile community.” November 2012

  • “The video equipment locked up on us. The slides were changing on our computer, but not on the video monitors. Also, there was some difficulty with the lights and shades. It would be beneficial to have directions on how to manipulate them. Even the staff took a while to figure out the lights.” October  2012
  • “I used the Dahlgren facilities to conduct an important 4 hour workshop with a group in the Middle East. This created special needs such as starting the event at 6:00am. The staff graciously supported every need and did so in an exemplary manner. I would highly recommend Dahlgren without any reservations.” October 2012

  • “The UMW Dahlgren campus overall was very pleasant for a classroom setting. One area that could use improvement is the chairs in the classroom. They are not comfortable and particularly so if sitting in them for extended periods of time such as an all-day class. Several students complained about them. Additionally the shared drives for the computers were a bit difficult to access at times.” August 2012
  • “We are pleased to say that we had an excellent experience at University of Mary Washington, Dahlgren Campus, King George, VA on July 31, 2012. The Administrator was very proactive from the moment we made contact with the Dahlgren campus in search of classroom space. We received detailed guidance on available services and associated fees. We were directed to the university’s website to proceed with our reservations. On the day of class we were greeted by a staff that was available very early in the morning and supplied us with the upmost services and periodically made checks on our class to ensure that it was set up appropriately and the staff was there to see that the class flowed promptly. Thank you for your professionalism.” August 2012
