Update
University Oaks Community – Street Parking



Update: February 10, 2011
The Department of Public Safety wanted to follow up on the previous story written below regarding illegal parking in the University Oaks community. In the event your vehicle is towed, we would like to provide some helpful information.

The City of Houston Parking Management Department advised that vehicles will be towed to the following location:

City of Houston’s Zone 1 Storage Lot
2104 Lyons Ave
Houston, Texas 77020
Near Hwy 59/I-10 Interchange
(713) 228-2221

If for some reason your vehicle has been towed to a different lot other than Zone 1 Storage Lot, you will need to contact the City of Houston at:

Houston Police Department Tow Line
713-308-8580

Original Story - Dated: January 19, 2011
The community of University Oaks has certified with the City of Houston as a Residential Permit Parking neighborhood. In order to legally park on the streets within University Oaks, you will now need a parking permit. The new parking restrictions will not go into effect until February 15, 2011. Appropriate signage will be going up along the streets to ensure that individuals parking will be properly notified. The City of Houston Parking Management Department will enforce the parking restriction by using warning citations initially and then, after a reasonable amount of time, they will begin issuing citations and/or towing.

The Department of Public Safety has no authority over the parking enforcement with the University Oaks community and was not involved in the Civic Club certification process. That being said, the UHDPS will do everything in its power to assist the students, faculty and staff through the transition.

All UH community members parking in University Oaks at the current time need to immediately seek alternative parking. As more information becomes available, the Department of Public Safety will be sharing that information with the campus community.
