ERP Parking

What is ERP?

Energy Research Park (ERP), located at 5000 Gulf Freeway, is a 70-acre complex which provides research and classroom space, as well as a variety of offices for the University of Houston main campus. The Petroleum Engineering Program has begun offering classes at ERP, and various departments from IT to Real Estate have offices at ERP.

During Monday-Friday before 4 p.m., Remote Campus Permit holders may park at ERP only. Faculty, staff and students with other permit types are allowed to park in the back of ERP at any time to allow access to this vital UH campus location.
