Every motorist desiring to park on campus is required to register with the WCU Parking Operations Office and to pay the parking permit fee. Every motorist must have proof of ownership to register any vehicle on campus. Additionally, in accordance with North Carolina general statutes, students are required to show proof of insurance. The Chancellor shall have authority to establish the number of vehicles any motorist may register and operate pursuant to these regulations. 

REGISTER YOUR VEHICLE

  • Student parking permit registration for the next academic year usually begins at the end of the Spring semester. Current student parking permits expire at the end of the summer semester. 
  • Staff and faculty may register and obtain parking permits anytime. Permanent staff and faculty parking permits are non-expiring. 
  • Parking permits may be purchased at any time during the year at the Parking Operations Office during normal business hours Monday through Friday 8 am to 5 pm.

Faculty/Staff with a parking permit already

If you are full-time staff or faculty and have previously enrolled in the payroll deduction program and have a parking permit, you do not need to do anything. One of the advantages of this program is that the permits are continuous as long as the member remains enrolled in the payroll deduction program. If you need to change your vehicle or license plate information, you may do so online. If your permit is lost or damaged, please contact the Parking Operations Office.

Faculty/Staff without a parking permit

If you are full-time staff or faculty and do not have a parking permit but need to obtain one, please come by the Parking Operations Office to enroll in the payroll deduction program and receive your permit.
