REGISTRATION


Anyone enrolled in any class or program at Wake Forest University, including study-abroad programs  who wishes to park a vehicle in a university parking lot at any time of day or night, including after 4:00 p.m. weekdays, on weekends and during academic breaks, must register that vehicle with WFU Transportation and Parking Services.

 The online registration process requires the vehicle license plate number and state, make, model, color, year, and fuel type of the vehicle. If your vehicle has a temporary license plate number, please use that to register the vehicle. Parking permits are not transferable from vehicle to vehicle or person to person. A vehicle is not considered registered until permits have been ordered, picked up, and placed on the vehicle as instructed on the permits. Graduate, undergraduate, and transfer students may request parking permits.  Eligibility will be based on student classification and resident or commuter status.
