Decide WVU Days
Look no further. Your authentic Mountaineer experience awaits.
Join us for Decide WVU Days, a special open house designed just for admitted students like you.
This is your day to immerse yourself in all things WVU. It’s your day to ask questions, explore campus and share the journey with your family.
At Decide WVU Days, you can experience a real college class, explore the Student Rec Center (we have a 50-foot climbing wall), sample some awesome food, sign up for New Student Orientation, mingle with current WVU students and so much more.
Join the Twitter conversation using #WVUbound and download WVU Guide from the app store to start planning your day.

Can I register for classes at Decide WVU?
No, but you can learn how to use our scheduling tool and build sample schedules that will help you choose your courses during New Student Orientation. You can also visit our pop-up New Student Orientation Office and register for an NSO date.
Do you have hotel suggestions?
Yes! We’ve worked with local hotels to find the best rates. View places to stay.
I’ve chosen my residence hall and my room. Can I view my room while at Decide WVU?
No, due to privacy and safety concerns for current students (the person currently living in your room), you cannot see your room. You can, however, visit your residence hall and view a showroom during our Residence Hall Open House. If you’re looking for measurements of your room, and a list of what you can and cannot bring on Move-In Day or general info about your hall, visit Housing.
Can I take a tour of campus?
During Decide WVU we offer walking tours of the downtown area of campus. If you’re interested in seeing Evansdale or Health Sciences, you can take one of our looping WVU buses or the PRT.
Where can I park?
Where you park depends on your major. Once you register for Decide WVU, you’ll be directed to a confirmation page with a dropdown menu of majors. Choose your major to find your check-in location.
How do I get around campus?
We have plenty of WVU buses looping across campus with various stops. The PRT will be running during the day and families are encouraged to take a ride.
