Traffic alerts & lot closures

Parking and mobility on and/or near campus will be affected during the following times. Click the links to learn more about specific impacts.

Garage 6 Construction Parking Impacts (7/8)

Starting on July 8, we will begin construction on Garage 6. All of Lots 20A and 20C will be closed to facilitate the building. 

The East Garage will only be accessible from the Spur 5 access lanes. Traffic travelling south on I-45 should exit Cullen and follow the feeder road through the Elgin intersection. Zone C parkers will not have access to Lots 20A and 20C.

Garage 5 Construction Update (5/30)

Due to delays in construction, the elevators in the garage will not be operational until October. The garage will be open and you will be able to park in it starting at the beginning of the academic year, but there will not be any functional elevators. Rates are being adjusted and alternative parking options offered to accommodate this inconvenience.

Please check back for updates.
