Special Parking Program for Hybrid and Remote Employees

WVU is deploying a special parking program for hybrid and remote employees that includes a daily parking pass/rate versus an annual pass/monthly rate.

Hybrid or remote employees may choose to cancel their annual parking permit, effective July 1 and utilize one-day parking permits, as needed.

The rate for one-day permits for the Downtown, Evansdale, College of Law and Health Sciences Center campuses will be $5 per day, and permits can be purchased online via the Parking Portal beginning July 1. In addition to the $5 daily rate option, hybrid and remote employees who have parking permits for the garage at One Waterfront Place may choose to keep their permits and pay a reduced rate of $20 per month.

No action is required by remote employees to take part in the special parking program — they will be enrolled automatically. However, remote employees who wish to opt out of the program and retain their parking permits should contact the Parking Management Office at 304-293-5502 or

Hybrid employees must opt in to the special parking program. Hybrid employees who wish to participate in the program should contact the Parking Management Office by close of business on June 17 to express interest.

For those who participate in the program and currently have their parking fees automatically withheld via a payroll deduction, the deduction will be suspended beginning July 1.

Program participants whose parking fees are not currently paid through an automatic payroll deduction should contact the Parking Management Office to initiate a refund.

Employees who have been designated to work in a hybrid or remote capacity should monitor their WVU email for more information from the Parking Management team.
