Visitor and Temporary Parking
Parking on the Winston-Salem State University campus is strictly controlled. Visitors must utilize available metered parking spaces located throughout campus or obtain a visitor pass from Public Safety. Visitors must park in designated visitor parking spaces or Lot G, the visitors parking lot (pass required). Passes an be obtained from the Campus Public Safety office on Cromartie in the Old Maintenance Building.
Guest Parking Pass
Temporary guest passes are available for individuals that are invited to campus by Faculty/Staff for the sole purpose of conducting official university business. Departments may request passes for guest speakers, lecturers and those attending meetings, seminars, workshops or conferences by sending an email to email@example.com indicating: visitor's name, date and the location of visit. All department heads should be CC'd on the request. Arrangements for such passes should be made with the Department of Public Safety at 336-750-2905.
Departments may also request groups of parking spaces for guests attending conferences, meetings and seminars. Parking assignments for such groups will be determined by the Department of Public Safety. Visitors who are coming to campus as a part of an organized group or event, and who have received parking permits in advance from a WSSU organization or department, should follow the instructions provided with their parking passes.
Lot E, G, Z is now designated for visitors only. All visitors must come to the Department of Public Safety in the Old Maintenance before parking to obtain a parking pass.
Lot CC and Lot O are designated for visitors of resident students without a parking permit or pass from 5:00 pm - 7:00 am. Vehicles will be issued a parking citation and towed after designated hours.
