- 112 Welcome Center Parking Garage
Hours of Operation: 7:00 a.m. – 6:00 p.m. Monday–Friday
All vehicles parked on campus must display a valid UH parking permit issued by Parking & Transportation Services (PTS). This permit allows parking in designated areas as space permits; it does not guarantee a parking space in any particular lot.
Student PermitsParking permits are only available online. Commuters may choose from Garage, Student or Economy lot permits. A printable temporary permit is provided until the official permit is received by mail. Students should familiarize themselves with the parking regulations by visiting our website. Residence Hall permits are available in limited quantities. The most current information for purchasing permits can be found on our website.
Citations/AppealsParking citations double after 21 days, so all students are encouraged to take care of any parking citations in a timely manner. Violations V01 through V05 are discounted if paid within 48 hours of being issued. Parking citations can be paid or appealed online before the 21 day deadline. After 21 days, students forfeit the right to appeal a violation. A complete listing of parking rules and regulations is available on our website.
Shuttle ServicesThe University of Houston offers a modern fleet of buses that service the University of Houston campus, the Energy Research Park and Metro's Eastwood Transit Center. The buses are equipped with NextBus to provide real-time arrival predictions. To see when the next bus will arrive at your stop visit our website and learn how to access the system via a PC's web browser or by phone. Students who park in the more economical outlying lots can enjoy a ride to the center of campus and, after class, enjoy an air-conditioned ride back to their cars. There is no cost to ride the campus shuttles. For more information about routes and hours of operation visit our website or call our Customer Service Center.
Metro Services/Metro Q-CardIn addition to the Eastwood Transit Center, several Metro bus routes service our campus. Students are encouraged to register for a Metro Q-Card. These cards allow students to receive a 50% discounted rate. To register for a Q-Card visit Parking & Transportation Services in room 112 of the Welcome Center or any Metro Ride Store. Students registering at Metro Ride Stores will need to present a valid student ID and a current fee bill.
