Getting Here


Most literary festival events take place in the A. K. Hinds University Center Theater (#31 on the printable campus map - link below), or the recital hall in Coulter Building (#32 on the printable campus map) in the scenic mountains of Cullowhee, NC. Follow these directions to campus.

When you get to WCU's main entrance, stay in the left lane to drive left around the traffic circle. Take Memorial Drive, and look for parking behind the Hinds University Center (# 31 on the campus map).

The Hinds University Center Theater is on the third floor (one flight up if you enter the building from Memorial Drive; two flights if you enter the building from the center of campus, across from the bell tower).

Wednesday evening's event takes place in the recital hall on the second floor of Coulter Building (street level if you enter from Memorial Drive).

Campus Parking

Visitors may park in student or faculty/staff spaces (white or yellow spaces) which are not designated as special use spaces, reserved spaces, handicapped spaces, loading zones, etc.

Though visitors sometimes have trouble parking near the Hinds University Center and Coulter, they may find spots near the Ramsey Activity Center (#9 on campus map) and the Fine Arts Center (#2 on campus map). Cat-Tran, a shuttle bus to the center of campus, stops every 15 minutes at outlying parking areas.

University Police do not ticket for evening events, but they do occasionally ticket for daytime events. Visitors who receive a parking citation for no registration may have that citation waived by filling out the back of the citation and bringing it to the English Department Office or a Literary Festival staff person, or by mailing it to the Traffic Office (instructions are on the back of the citation).
