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.


The ORC is the hub of Adventure WV. The ORC offers a variety of educational materials and information including books, local maps and brochures about our programs as well as adventure gear rentals and other outdoor recreation opportunities throughout the state of West Virginia and beyond.

They offer many exciting trips as well as gear rentals for everything from canoes to kayaks.
