Life at WVU

Your week has 168 hours. We make the hours that you’re not in class just as full of discovery, growth and fun.

Housing

Our residence halls and apartment complexes are much more than a place to sleep. You will study, relax, create and dream with like-minded friends.

Transportation and Parking

Our electric people mover, the PRT, is the best ride in town. Where else can you glide above traffic in computer-driven cars while studying for your next class? Your student ID gives you free access to the PRT and Morgantown’s Mountain Line buses.
