With an action-packed evening of events on tap for Friday, Nov. 8 at the WVU Coliseum and Dick Dlesk Soccer Stadium, the WVU Department of Intercollegiate Athletics wants fans to be aware of the following information regarding tickets and event parking:
Limited Coliseum Parking during the day Friday: Coliseum parking during the day on Friday will be extremely limited. Students who have classes in the Coliseum on Friday will be allowed to park in the Natatorium lot for free until 5 p.m. Students who do not have classes in the Coliseum, but in other areas of the Evansdale campus may park for free in the Coliseum lots near the Arboretum until 5 p.m. Space is limited at both locations.

To offset this parking loss, all are reminded that short-term parking is available at the Alumni Center, Mountaineer Station on Van Voorhis Road, at a variety of short-term lots on the Evansdale campus, and in downtown parking garages and lots operated by the Morgantown Parking Authority. All of these alternatives have easy access to the PRT and Mountain Line bus system, which is free to WVU students, faculty and staff.
