Biking is another great (and green) way for students, faculty and staff to get around campus. Beyond our campus, the rail trail is a great way to explore Morgantown and the surrounding area by bike. The rail trail also allows you to travel between the Downtown and Evansdale areas of campus.

Biking on Campus

Yes, we admit that biking the hilly WVU campus can be challenging, but with a little bit of bike know-how and information about WVU’s bike-friendly facilities and activities, you can introduce a new way to commute!

NOTE: The WVU campus map lists bike rack locations. Once you’ve located a specified building on campus, click ‘What’s near here?’ on the lefthand menu and rack locations will pop up!
