A special parking provision has been arranged on the Campus of WFU in Lot Q, which is the large lot directly in front of Wingate Hall and the Chapel. To get there, take the Interstate Business 40 to the Cherry Street exit; follow Cherry Street, which becomes University Parkway; take the Polo Road exit. Turn left on Polo Road and go to the Polo Road entrance to WFU. Go to the first stop sign; turn right and enter the Lot Q. If tickets are given, there will be a note with security that you are a visitor, so simply disregard.

Those who know WFU can also enter from the Reynolda Rd entrance to WFU, then take the first left and first right to get into Lot Q. If there are not spaces available in Lot Q, proceed to the other side of the quad from Wingate Hall to the only caution light on campus and utilize Lot N. We encourage, where possible, that those coming from the same area carpool to save parking space. For a campus map go to http://static.wfu.edu/files/pdf/visitors/campusmap.pdf
