RideShare Parking Spaces

For Students and employees who share the ride by carpooling, WCU has nineteen centrally located rideshare parking spaces reserved for two or more people who share the ride. Look for these spaces in these parking lots:

  • A Lot for Commuter Students, next to the Sharpless Street Garage
  • B Lot for Employees, south of the Business and Public Management Center
  • G Lot for Employees, across High Street from Philips Hall
  • K Lot for Commuter Students, behind Sykes Student Union
  • L Lot for Employees, off Roslyn Avenue near Rosedale Avenue
  • M Lot for Commuter Students and Employees, near the E.O. Bull Center

If you feel parking spaces are hard to come by, team up with a neighbor to score one of these primo spots. Be sure to display two or more parking permit tags on the car's dashboard before walking away to ensure you won't be ticketed.
