Parking at the College of Creative Arts CAC is regulated by the University Parking and Transportation Office. The Production and Facilities Office works with the Parking Office to accommodate special parking requirements for events at the CCAC. Most parking needs require advance planning to ensure a pleasant experience for your guests.

For Community Music Program visitors the main lot (45) in front of the Loulie, Valerie and William Canady Creative Arts Center is free after 5 p.m. on weekdays and during the weekends.

Before 5 p.m. on weekdays, the University will ticket cars without permits. Please be aware of this if you want to schedule lessons before that time.

Free parking is available at most times at the Krepps Park and the CMA Church parking lots across from the Canady Creative Arts Center. Paid parking is also available at the Coliseum and several short-term lots around the Canady Creative Arts Center.

Without special arrangement, parking lot 70 requires a permit 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Additionally, short-term paid parking is available behind the building (ST9) and on the other side of the Museum Education Center (ST1).

Parking in loading/unloading zones and special designation spaces (i.e. ADA, Emergency Vehicles Only, etc.) is enforced 24-hours without exception.

15-Minute Visitor Parking

There are three parking spots designated for 15-minute Visitor Parking located adjacent to the drop-off lane in front of the CCAC. These spots are reserved M-F from 7am-5pm for visitor use without a permit. Guests who have been issued a temporary permit should find other available spots. Permit holders who park in a Visitor spot during restricted hours are subject to citations.

Temporary Guest Parking

When guests are expected between 7:00am and 5:00pm Monday through Friday, special action must be taken to ensure they do not receive a citation for parking without a permit. For events which are expected to bring in 50 or more guest vehicles, the Production and Facilities Office may request that the Parking Office suspend ticketing in lot 45 in front of the CCAC.

Longer Short-Term Guest Parking

Guests who require multi-day parking, including guest artists in residency, may be issued multi-day visitor permits rather than issuing a stack of one-day permits. This is handled on a case-by-case basis and the guest requesting for the multi-day parking permit is responsible for the permit fee, so please contact the Director of the WVU Community Music Program, Eftihia Arkoudis, at
