Permit Purchase

Statement on Faculty and Staff Parking Fee Refunds: WVU has been extremely flexible with faculty and staff regarding working remotely in response to COVID-19, and we will not refund parking fees or cancel a permit as a result of changes in our operations. These fees cover fixed costs of parking operations and enable us to continue to pay our employees. The Transportation and Parking team appreciates your understanding and continued support.

Parking permits are issued through the Parking Management Office located in Mountaineer Station. Permits are valid for one year only from August 1 through July 31 of the following year.

Permits will be renewed automatically for employees with payroll deduction annually. Annual renewals cannot be processed if there are any outstanding citations on a permit holder’s account. All citations must be paid in advance prior to renewal. New permit purchase and existing permit renewal may also be done by visiting the parking office.

In order to park in a permitted space on campus, a permit is required for motor vehicles as well as motorcycles.


ALL citations must be paid when purchasing, renewing and/or picking up a permit. Permit location and rate information is available by selecting the links on the right.
