Self-Guided Tour

Welcome to the West Virginia University self-guided tour! Whether you're visiting campus on the weekend, prefer to explore solo, or live too far away to visit us in person, our self-guided tour gives you a comprehensive look at our beautiful campus and the key buildings in which you'll eat, sleep and study.

First, download the free self-guided tour app here. Next, open Guidebook and look for the WVU Tour guide. 

If you're on campus, grab a self-guided tour map from the blue kiosks located around campus. Find one outside of the Evansdale Crossing, Evansdale Library, Mountainlair Student Union, Health Sciences PRT platform and One Waterfront Place. You can also print one ahead of your visit using the PDF link below.

Due to campus restrictions as related to COVID-19, entrance to most buildings is prohibited including residence halls and most academic buildings.  Additionally, we are currently unable to offer campus parking permits. However, there are several paid lots that visitors can access. On the Downtown area of campus, we recommend parking in the Mountainlair Garage. Parking is available on the upper level of the garage at an hourly rate of $1.50 on weekdays. There is also short-term paid parking available in the ST-1 lot near the Art Museum of WVU on the Evansdale area of campus. Parking is free in the garage and in all public campus lots on the weekend.

The tour allows you to proceed at your own pace, but usually takes about two hours to complete. 

Please call 304-293-3489 if you have any questions. Visitors Center hours can be found at
