Getting around campus, and downtown Raleigh, is pretty easy with convenient campus parking and the R-Line.

Campus Parking

We offer ample parking for students, faculty, staff, and visitors. In fact, as a traditional undergraduate student, you get the added perk of a free GoRaleigh GoPass. 

The GoRaleigh GoPass program allows students the ability to travel anywhere within the city of Raleigh on the GoRaleigh bus route.

All WPU students have the opportunity to bring cars to campus. Students are required to register their cars with the Office of Public Safety and purchase a parking decal each year through the Office of Student Accounts.

Every inch of Raleigh is easily accessible from WPU. The R-Line, a downtown bus service with stops on campus, connects you to restaurants, retail and entertainment venues, museums and hotels. Remember, as a traditional undergraduate student, you get the added perk of a free GoRaleigh GoPass.

In addition, the Amtrak train station is less than two miles from campus, RDU International Airport is 20 minutes by car, and it’s an easy drive from WPU to a whole range of places along the Atlantic seaboard and I-95 corridor.
