Permit type click belowAs the UH campus grows, my Parking and Transportation team continues to adapt our parking program to better serve our Coogs. We have recently made a lot of changes to the parking options, including reallocating student and faculty/staff lots to adjust for demand, as well as adding an Evening/Weekend Permit.

To start off the 2017-2018 academic year on the right foot, we want to make sure the rules and the perks of each permit type are clear. That's why we have created a complete list of all Faculty, Staff and Student permit options with details about what each permit type can do.

Click through the list below to learn more about Faculty, Staff and Student permit options.

If you have any questions, please comment in the discussion area at the bottom of the page or contact the Parking and Transportation office at parking@uh.edu or (832) 842-1097.
