WVU’s home football game against Kansas State at 7 p.m. Thursday, Nov. 20, will disrupt normal parking and driving patterns for WVU Healthcare and Health Sciences Center employees.

WVU Healthcare

All parking areas between Ruby Memorial Hospital and Milan Puskar Stadium, and along Willowdale Road, will become reserved game parking as of 4 p.m. Nov. 20. Cars parked in these lots without a football season parking pass may be towed after 4 p.m.

WVU Healthcare has secured additional off-site parking areas for employees and will provide security and shuttle service to and from the lots. WVUH employees who are planning to stay past 4 p.m. at the Research Park parking area should consider parking at the ROC2 (former Prete building) for better access to their vehicles.

The Teal Lot, also called F3/F4 along Willowdale Road, and E lot, will be closed Wednesday evening. Game-day parking passes will be available from employees' units or from WVUH Security before Nov. 20. Hospital employees who also hold a WVU Football season parking pass may leave their vehicles in the lots but must display both passes.

For more information on hospital parking, check Security's information on CONNECT.

Health Sciences Center

All classes and any ongoing laboratory work may continue as scheduled. After 5 p.m. Nov. 20, entry to the HSC (North and South) will be limited to students, faculty and staff. Only the Pylons Lobby entrance will be open.

Faculty, staff and student University Area 80 and Area 81 parking permits are not valid on game night. Cars parked in University lots on the HSC campus must be removed by 5 p.m. Nov. 20. Cars left after this time will be towed. Anyone planning to keep a vehicle on campus after that time must have a game parking permit.

Residents and faculty working in the hospital may obtain a WVU Healthcare game-day pass, which will permit them to park in WVU Area 80. Other HSC faculty and staff who have a need to park near the HSC after 5 p.m. must obtain a game-day pass from Cathy Patterson in Facilities Management and move their vehicles to Area 80.

Patient Access

WVU Healthcare has developed an access plan for hospital patients and families for all home football games. Outpatient clinics will close by 3 p.m. Nov. 20. Hospital access is through the Emergency Department, with parking in the adjacent garage. Game-day visitor passes will be available from WVUH security officers, including one who will be stationed at a checkpoint near the parking garage.
