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 8:00 a.m. - 4:00 p.m.
  • The rate per hour is the same as other surface lots: $1.25/hr.
  • Parking at the Coliseum costs $1 per parking session
  • Short Term lot 1 near the art museum is also a closer option with a cheaper parking rate ($0.50/hr).
  • The ParkMobile app and Mountain Line app are two resources that help identify open spaces and alternate transportation.
