Permit Placement and Replacement

The UH parking permit should be displayed from the vehicle’s rearview mirror, or in the case of economy permits, on the front windshield, above the registration sticker, while parked on campus. Owners of open air vehicles may request a permanent sticker to be placed on the vehicle’s bumper. Any vehicle displaying an open air permit that is not affixed directly to the vehicle will be in violation and subjected to citation.

Lost, stolen, or damaged decals/permits must be reported to PTS. The replacement fee for the first lost/stolen permit is $25. Subsequent replacements in the same permit year will be at market rate. Damaged permits will be replaced at no charge provided the recognizable remnants of the old decal are returned. The use of lost, stolen, altered, or forged permit may result in a $100 fine plus the cost of the permit and is subject to tow.

Motorcycle and moped operators must display the decal in a location that allows it to be visible at all times. Suggested locations are front or rear fender. Motorcycles and mopeds must parked in areas designated for their use.
