The vehicle registration process requires the following information: vehicle license plate number, state of registration, vehicle year, make, model and color. Faculty and staff must register all vehicles that will be driven to campus, but will receive only one parking hang tag that can be interchangeable between vehicles. You must choose the appropriate permit to either park on-campus or off-campus. The parking hang tag must be visible from the rearview mirror at all times while parked and will also serve a dual purpose as a gate pass. Parking permits ordered on-line will be delivered to appropriate departments for distribution to faculty and staff via campus mail.



Exempt and nonexempt faculty/staff, (both full-time and part-time) as well as, WFU temporary personnel, who choose to park a motorized vehicle on the Reynolda campus, during weekday hours (8 AM to 5 PM), must obtain an annual parking permit. Permit fees are automatically withdrawn from paychecks (payroll deduction) over the course of year and are calculated on an annual basis as a percentage (0.3%) of post-tax compensation.

On-Campus Employees

Faculty and staff who work on campus may select from one of four vehicle permits:

  1.  Hang tag to park a single occupancy motorized vehicle on the Reynolda campus
  2. A parking decal to park a motorcycle or motorized scooter
    on the Reynolda campus
  3. A carpool hang tag for the Reynolda campus (see Section 5)
  4. A hang tag to park in a designated satellite parking lot for free

Off-Campus Employees

Faculty and staff who work at Bridger Field House, the Environmental Health &Safety office, Graylyn, Human Resources (HR), Reynolda Gardens, Reynolda House, Reynolda Village, University Corporate Center (UCC), or any other satellite locations are not required to purchase a parking hang tag, but must have their vehicles registered with Parking and Transportation in order to be issued an off-campus parking hang tag.

Off-campus faculty and staff who visit campus have the following parking options:

    1. Park at the satellite location and ride the shuttle to the Reynolda campus for meetings
    2. If approved by the department head, purchase a parking hang tag to be able to park on campus at any time
    3. Use a departmental issued hang tag and park in Lot N, any faculty-staff or general parking lot.

  • How do I register my vehicle if I am a WFU employee?

    Faculty and staff must log onto http://wfuparking.t2hosted.com, select “Register Your Vehicle,” enter their WFU Login ID (excluding @wfu.edu) and password, and select “Purchase a Permit” to begin the registration process.

  • How do I register my vehicle if I am a concessionaire, such as an Aramark employee?

    If you have previously registered a vehicle, go on-line at https://wfuparking.t2hosted.com and log into your account.  If you have not previously registered a vehicle, you must create a guest account. After ordering your hangtag online, you must go to the Controller’s Office located in Reynolda Hall, Room 107, to pay for your parking permit fee. Take your WFUID or your driver’s license for identification. Your name will be printed on the receipt for proof of payment. Bring your receipt and WFUID to the Parking and Transportation Office to pick up your hangtag.

  • For staff whose shifts run from 3pm-11pm, will they still have to pay a full price fee even though a majority of their “work day” takes place after the 5:00 p.m. cutoff?

    Faculty and staff who park on campus during any portion of the day between 8:00 a.m. and 5:00 p.m. on weekdays are required to pay full price for a parking hangtag.  There will be no prorated parking fees.

  • If I have a handicap placard and need on-campus parking, am I required to pay to park on campus?


  • If I choose the free option, do I still need to register my vehicle?

    Yes. Everyone will need to register a vehicle if they park on-campus or off-campus.

  • I work at UCC, how does the Reynolda Campus parking permit program affect me?

    A parking hangtag issued by UCC would not grant access to on-campus parking during the hours of 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. on weekdays. Employees at UCC are required to register their vehicles with the Parking and Transportation office and will be issued an off-campus hangtag. UCC employees whose job requires them to travel to campus infrequently or on a time-sensitive basis between 8:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m. have the options to:

    • Use the shuttle system
    • Park in Lot N, faculty-staff or general parking lots with a departmental parking hangtag
    • If approved by the department head, purchase their own on-campus parking hangtag allowing them to park in any campus lot.
  • Where is off-campus parking?

    There are a couple of off-campus parking locations. One is in the designated northern section of the sophomore lot located across from Polo Rd. This is Lot Z2 on the parking map. The second location is at the University Corporate Center (UCC) located at the rear of the building where the bus shelter is located. Both locations are serviced by the Gray Line shuttle. The shuttle schedule can be located here.

  • Can I park on-campus after 5:00 p.m. weekdays and weekends if I have an off-campus hangtag?

    Any employee, including employees with an off-campus parking hangtag, may park on campus after 5:00 p.m. on weekdays and all day on weekends. Vehicles with off-campus hangtags must be off campus by 8:00 a.m. on weekdays. Faculty and staff can park in all parking facilities designated General and Faculty/Staff.  Please keep in mind that your vehicle must be registered with Parking and Transportation.

  • What if I work off-campus and need to visit the Reynolda Campus between 8:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m.?

    Off-campus faculty and staff whose job requires them to travel to campus infrequently or on a time-sensitive basis have the options to:

    • Use the shuttle system
    • Park in Lot N, faculty-staff or general parking lots with a departmental parking hangtag
    • If approved by the department head, purchase their own on-campus parking hangtag allowing them to park in any campus lot.
  • Is there a carpool program?

    Yes. If two (2) or more employees carpool, parking is free. One “carpool” parking hangtag will be issued and shared between participants. Parking and Transportation will provide each carpool member with four (4) free Day Passes per driver, per semester, that can be used when an individual is unable to carpool. Additional Day Passes may be purchased at a price of $5.00 per day. Members of the carpool can choose a location on campus that they would like to park nearest to and Parking and Transportation will designate a carpool space as near to that location as possible. Visit the Parking and Transportation website at https://parking.wfu.edu/ for more information on the carpool policy.

  • How do I find a carpool partner?

    Zimride’s electronic ride-sharing board helps Wake Forest students, faculty and staff connect with regular carpool partners, others who are traveling to the same destination on a given day, or just in the same direction for part of the ride. Rides are matched based on the criteria set by the individuals offering and seeking ride-share partners. Interested individuals may visit http://www.zimride.com/wfu/ to join the secure online community and find a carpool partner.

  • Is there a bicycle commuting program?

    Yes. Faculty and staff who ride a bicycle to work on a frequent basis may register as bicycle commuters. These employees will be issued eight (8) free day passes per semester that will allow them to drive a vehicle to work and park on-campus, when needed. Additional Day Passes may be purchased at a price of $5.00 per day. Bicycle commuters must register their bicycles with the Parking and Transportation Office. Registration frequently aids in the recovery of stolen bicycles. At the end of each semester, unclaimed unregistered bicycles will be collected and renovated for re-use.

  • What is the cost for motorcycles?

    Motorcycle decals are $50 for an annual decal. Employees who purchase a parking hangtag to park a vehicle on-campus may receive a motorcycle decal for free. Motorcycles will receive a parking decal and can only park in designated motorcycle spaces.

  • Do retirees need a parking pass?

    Retired faculty and staff are not required to purchase a parking hangtag, unless they return to work. A special parking hangtag will be issued by the Parking and Transportation office, which allows retirees to park in faculty-staff and general parking lots.

  • What if I am not a WFU employee?

    Non-University paid temporary employees are required to register their vehicle and must do so in person at the Parking and Transportation office. Non-University paid temporary employees will pay a flat monthly fee of $10 or have the option to park off-campus for free. Individuals (non-employees) who require special or limited need parking on campus during the hours of 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. may purchase a semester hang tag for $50.  This option would be available for individuals who are auditing a class, regularly take advantage of the library, or other limited on-campus parking.

  • What if I am a vendor or service provider to the university?

    Vendors or service providers who provide a service to students for free will not be charged a parking fee, but must register their vehicle with Parking and Transportation. These providers will be issued a vendor pass and can park in all parking lots, and Service Vehicle Only and time-limited spaces.

  • How do I handle an emergency if I park off-campus?

    The satellite lot location across Polo Rd. is within walking distance of the Reynolda campus. This lot is located on the north side of campus across Polo Rd. The Gray Line shuttle also serves this location on a fixed schedule. The schedule can be found here Gray Line Schedule.
