Parking, Things to Do, and Where to Eat and Stay in Morgantown


Welcome all WVSSAC swimmers, friends and family to Greater Morgantown! We know that you will be busy during the day at the WVU Natatorium, but there are some great things to do around town once you are finished competing!



The West Virginia University Natatorium is located behind the WVU Coliseum. Coliseum parking is generally free, but be cautious of permit parking spots due to ticketing or towing. There is also parking on the side of the Natatorium. Some hotels are in walking distance as well.
