Motor Vehicle Registration and Fees

All students, both resident and commuter (including those students who reside off campus, in student apartments, theme, and satellite houses), who operate a vehicle on Wake Forest property, day or night (including after 4:00 p.m. weekdays and anytime on weekends), must register their vehicle they operate, whether it is in the student’s name or a family member’s name. A student cannot register a vehicle owned or operated by another student and doing so can result in an honor code violation for both parties involved.  Vehicle registration must be completed within 1 business day from the first time the vehicle is brought to campus. To be compliant with the vehicle registration process, permits must be ordered on-line and picked-up from the appropriate location described below. Both the gate pass and parking permit must be adhered to the vehicle it was assigned in accordance with package instructions.  

Parking Options

  • First-year students are required to register their vehicle and park off campus at the University Corporate Center (UCC) in the designated area, which is adjacent to Bridger Field House.
  • Sophomore students are required to register their vehicle and park off campus in Lot Z2, which is located on the north side of Polo Rd. Parking in the sophomore parking lot (Z2) is limited. When lot Z2 is sold out, permits for the overflow lot, the UCC Lot, will be the only permits available to sophomores. The UCC permit is not available online. A waitlist will be available when/if Z2 permits sell out. If we determine space is available at a later date, we will honor the waitlist. You are encouraged to order the UCC permit, even if on the waitlist, since there is no guarantee it will be honored.
  • Junior and senior resident students are required to register their vehicle and have the option to park on-campus or the UCC lot. UCC permits are only available in the parking office, not online. 
  • Commuting upper-class students are required to register their vehicle and have the options to park on campus (on-campus commuter permits are limited and sold on a first-come first-serve basis), off campus (Winston-Salem First and the designated lot in Reynolda Village) or the UCC lot. A waitlist will be available, if/when on-campus or Winston Salem First/Reynolda Village commuter permits sell out. If we determine space is available in either of these areas at a later time, we will honor the waitlist. You are encouraged to register for a permit, even if on the waitlist. There is no guarantee the waitlist will be honored.
  • The UCC parking permit is available to those who ride the shuttle to campus from apartment complexes or students who otherwise reside in off-campus housing and walk or bike to campus between 8:00 a.m. and 4:00 p.m., Monday-Friday. The permits must be placed on the vehicle to be considered registered to park on campus after 4:00 p.m. on weekdays and on weekends.
