Parking Permits

All students living on or off campus may purchase a parking permit based on completed credit hours and permit availability. First-year resident parking permits are sold via a permit lottery, while all other permits are sold on a first-come-first-serve basis. Demand for permits exceeds supply, so parking permits do sell out. Students must be registered for classes to purchase a parking permit. All parking permits may be purchased online. All student parking permits are virtual. See our website for more information,


Wolfline is NC State's full-service transit system. Wolfline operates every day class is in session, with limited service on weekends and breaks. Routes connect all three campuses, multiple park-and-ride lots, official NC State housing, and other destinations adjacent to campus. Buses are open to the general public and do not require any ID, pass, or fare. All buses are branded in NC State Wolfpack red, white, and black. Buses only stop at designated stop locations.

Please visit the Wolfline website for the most up-to-date information about park-and-ride lot locations, bus routes, and schedules.

Alternative Transportation Options

The NC State University Transportation Department offers the following alternative transportation options:

  • Bicycling: Bicycling is an inexpensive, healthy, and environmentally friendly way to travel to, from, and around campus. Bike racks are conveniently located throughout our three campuses and on all Wolfline buses. Bicycle fix-it stations are available for basic bike repairs and adjustments on the main and Centennial campuses. These and other amenities are on our Bike Racks and Facilities Map. Students are strongly encouraged to register their bicycles through the Transportation office. Register your bike and other valuables in the University Police WolfGuard ID Program. This registers your items in a national database to aid recovery should they be stolen.
  • Carpool: NC State students who participate in the student carpool program can enjoy carpooling benefits and gain access to premium parking areas. The Transportation office requires at least two commuter students to form a carpool. All registered carpool participants must show proof of vehicle registration and a local address.
  • E-Bikes and Scooters: NC State has partnered with a third-party vendor to provide e-bikes and scooters for students, employees, and visitors. Find details on our website.
  • Local/Regional Transit: GoRaleigh, the City of Raleigh's public transit system, offers a city-wide bus service. Four GoRaleigh routes serve the NC State campus: Routes 4, 11, 11L, and 12GoTriangle provides regional bus service to NC State from Raleigh, Cary, Apex, Durham, Chapel Hill, Wake Forest, Zebulon, Wendell, and RDU Airport. Five GoTriangle routes serve the NC State campus: Routes 100, 300, 305, CRX, and DRX. Additional information is located on our website.
  • Walking: As an urban campus, NC State University is very walkable, with short distances to off-campus locations such as shopping and restaurants and between campus destinations. Many students and staff choose to walk to school or work and combine walking with another alternative mode to get around campus. Visit the Transportation website to download a Walk Times map.
  • Wolfpack Pick Up: Wolfpack Pick Up is a service operated by the Division of Academic and Student Affairs and designed for students with injuries or living with disabilities. Wolfpack Pick Up services students on both Main Campus and Centennial Campus. Rides are scheduled online. Questions about scheduling may be directed to
