Parking and Traffic Regulations

Students who operate vehicles on the university campus must abide by the parking and traffic regulations posted on the Parking and Transportation Services (PTS) website ( Students who use parking facilities on campus must display a valid UH parking permit issued by PTS. This permit is assigned to the student and not to a vehicle. The student is responsible for all parking violations and subsequent citations written against that permit.

Citations issued to vehicles not displaying a valid permit will be the responsibility of the vehicle's registered owner. PTS will verify registration information with the Texas DMV and try to associate the vehicle with a student through last name and address. In cases where an association can be made, the citation(s) will be assigned to the student. Students have the right to appeal parking citations within 14 days of issuance. Appeals can be entered online from the PTS website. In instances of driving violations, student drivers may be issued university tickets or county tickets. University tickets issued through the UH Police Department may be appealed to the Appeals Board.
