Faculty/Staff Parking Program FAQ

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

  • 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 hangtag that can be interchangeable between vehicles. You must choose the appropriate permit to either park on-campus or off-campus. The parking hangtag must be visible from the rearview mirror at all times while parked. The parking hangtag will serve a dual purpose as a parking hangtag and a gate pass. Parking hangtags ordered on-line will be delivered to appropriate departments for distribution to faculty and staff via campus mail. 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?
