WWCU FM 90.5 is a radio station licensed to Western Carolina University in Cullowhee, North Carolina. The station plays a classic hits format.

WWCU broadcasts 24 hours a day, seven days a week from studios in the Old Student Union on the Western Carolina campus as Jackson County's only local FM radio station. Student staff members work in an academic environment with studios similar to those found in commercial stations.

The main transmitter is located on the ridge between Cullowhee and Waynesville, which it now reaches along with Canton. There is a booster station, WWCU-FM1, in Cullowhee as the town is somewhat blocked from the main signal by terrain shielding. From 1977 to 2004, the transmitter site now used for the booster station was the main station transmission site, located on the ground floor of the Moore Building on the Western Carolina campus.

WWCU airs mostly classic rock and pop music from the 1970s and 1980s. There are announcers on the station during regular rotation. There are also specialty shows during the evening and weekend hours.

WWCU is the flagship station for the Catamount Sports Network and provides coverage of Catamount Football, Catamount Basketball (Men's & Women's) and Catamount Baseball. The station also serves as the official radio station for the Fine and Performing Arts Center at Western Carolina.
