Parking Instructions for Winter Break

The Office of Parking Management has posted the following announcement regarding student cars and Winter Break.


These instructions are for Winter Break 2011-2012.

If you do not live in WFU off campus housing, you must leave your vehicle at your resident location (house or apartment).

Resident Hall and Freshman Students: If you will be leaving your vehicle during break, you must park in Lot R2 or R3. If you have freshman or First Assembly parking decals, please do not bring your vehicle on campus to park for break until you are physically leaving campus. This will prevent parking issues for those who are continuing to take their final exams. Your vehicle MUST be returned to freshman parking or First Assembly lots by Monday, January 16, 2012 @ 7:30am.

Loading/Packing Your Vehicle: If you are driving home and need to load your vehicle, you must follow these directions:

  • Pack your items prior to parking your vehicle to load.
  • Legally park in a parking space, use your headlights and emergency blinkers while loading your vehicle.
  • Cars parked more than one hour will be ticketed.
  • Do not park in fire lanes, handicapped or other reserved spaces or you may be ticketed or towed.

Frequenting Campus During Break: Beginning Friday, December 16th @ 5:00pm, all off campus registered students who will be frequenting campus to work, study, etc… can park their vehicles in student lots for the duration of time needed to do so. (Including Law and MBA students who are completing final exams) Do not illegally park in Faculty/Staff, Visitor or Reserved Spaces.

Your vehicle MUST be back in the off campus parking areas by Monday, January 16, 2012 @ 7:30am.  As a reminder, Wake Forest is not responsible for any loss of or damage to your vehicle or its contents.

If Your Student Has a Problem

One of the most important ways parents and families can help their students in college is by encouraging them to solve their own problems. Please bookmark or print out this Stop, Drop, and Roll flyer so you have it when your student contacts you with a problem.  Also, the flyer lists contact information for urgent and serious concerns where family intervention might be appropriate.
