Vehicle Registration Beginning

As a reminder, vehicle registration will begin on June 4th and will proceed in stages based on students class years.  Please see the information below for your student’s specific day and time.


When the fall semester begins the last week of August, faculty and staff will not see any changes in the parking procedures. However, they should be aware of changes to student parking procedures.

All permits may be purchased online at

Here’s what to expect this fall:

Faculty/Staff – no changes

  • Current permits are good until June 30, 2013.
  • Vehicle re-registration starts June 1, 2013.
  • Faculty and staff are encouraged to consider joining Wake Forest’s carpool program.

Commuter students will be able to purchase an on-campus parking permit for $500. They are sold first-come, first-served with limited availability. Once those permits are gone, no more will be sold.

  • Graduate students and seniors who commute will have the first opportunity for on-campus commuter permits. These permits will be available for purchase on Monday, June 4, at 9 a.m. through Sunday, June 10, at 11 p.m.
  • Juniors who commute will have the second opportunity to purchase an on-campus permit beginning Monday, June 11, at 9 a.m. through Sunday, June 17, at 11 p.m., if permits are still available.
  • When you go online to purchase your permits, you’ll have the option of purchasing an on-campus permit for $500, parking off campus in the First Assembly Lot for $300 or parking off campus in the University Corporate Center (UCC) lot for free.

If Your Student Has a Problem

One of the best ways parents/families can help their students is to let them solve their own problems. Use the Stop, Drop, and Roll method when your student contacts you with a problem.  The flyer also lists contact information for serious concerns where family intervention might be appropriate.
