At Western Carolina University we strive to create a campus core that is pedestrian friendly. Students, faculty, staff, and visitors can easily move from one instructional site to another, from residence halls to entertainment venues, all without needing a vehicle. We also encourage people to use our Cat-Tran campus shuttle service, designed to enhance campus safety while minimizing traffic congestion.

New Long-Term Storage

A long-term storage lot has been added so that resident students may “STORE” their vehicles off campus for a minimal fee. This offers added convenience for residents still needing occasional access to a vehicle. Students living on campus and eligible for residential parking may apply for this permit. This long-term storage lot is a portion of the HHS overflow lot #76B and will have its own permit.  The CAT-TRAN accesses this lot during business hours. NOTE: Long-term storage lot permits do not include on-campus parking, and cannot be used for commuters or short-term parking. 

For specific lot information, please see below.

CAT-TRAN Routes and Schedules

FRESHMAN PARKING

FRESHMAN MAP

COMMUTER PARKING

Commuter parking will be moved to one area of campus to allow students to enter and access commuter lots through Forrest Hills Road reducing traffic flow problems at the main entrance during peak hours. Commuter students now have the freedom of entering and exiting the university without driving through the core of campus searching for a parking space. Commuter lots will be monitored 7am-5pm, Monday-Friday. 

 The newly designated lots will allow convenient parking for athletic and special events.

COMMUTER PARKING

Resident Parking

Resident parking will be located directly around the living areas on campus. This should allow students to park their vehicles near their dorms and walk, bike, or use the Cat Tran to travel into the core of campus for classes, dining and other activities. Resident lots will be monitored from 7am-11pm M-F. Walmart shuttles run once a month. Please contact Residential Living for Walmart shuttle scheduling information: 828.227.7303  l  housingquestions@wcu.edu.

 

PLEASE NOTE: LOT #63C is now reserved for Faculty/Staff parking.
