Parking

With an ever-expanding Evansdale Campus and growth of University resources, access to parking has been an ongoing focus for University planners. Several short-term parking lots have been added, including “Short Term 4” adjacent to the Recreation Center. Visit WVU's Transportation & Parking site for up-to-date information.

Some of the most pertinent facts are: 

  • Parking fees will be in effect Monday-Friday 8:00am - 4:00pm.
  • The rate per hour is the same as other surface lots: $1.25/hr.
  • Parking will remain free for the time-being at the Coliseum.
  • Short Term lot 4 near the art museum is also a closer option with a cheaper parking rate.
  • The ParkMobile app and Mountain Line app are two resources that help identify open spaces and alternate transportation.

Wall Open for Bouldering

Bouldering Sessions are offered three days a week for the remainder of the Spring 2021 semester. Sessions will be Tuesday & Thursday 5pm - 9pm and Sunday noon - 4pm. There are spots for five climbers per hour. This activity is open to any current student or SRC member.
