DIVISIONAL MISSION STATEMENT
Our mission is to strive to provide quality and courteous assistance to the UH Campus Community through professionalism, dedication and public service and safety.
The UHDPS Enforcement Division is always aiming to find ways to better assist the UH Community. To better service our community, we attend and participate in regularly scheduled meetings for campus planning and real estate and transportation advisory meetings.
SPECIAL EVENTS REQUEST
The UHDPS Parking Enforcement Division also assists the University of Houston campus community by taking request for special events. Our Division works with Departments and Student Groups to schedule and reserve specific areas for an approved event. The UHDPS Parking Enforcement Division has worked with departments and groups in setup of blood drives, graduation ceremonies, career fairs and many other events. All outdoor events must be cleared through the University Center Reservations office. We require a one week notification for all special events. A request form must be filled out by the department stating event time(s), location, name of event and contact person name and telephone number.
BUSES ARRIVING FOR SPECIAL EVENTS
If your event requires the patron drop-off by use of non-university buses, due to traffic flow problems (and security concerns), it is required that your department contact UHDPS Parking Enforcement Division so arrangements can be made for drop-off and pickup locations. Buses arriving on campus should adhere to the following:
1. Buses are not allowed to stop or park in the roadway, this is illegal.
2. Stopping or parking in the roadway creates both vehicular and pedestrian safety concern by obstructing the view of drivers and pedestrians walking between buses.
3. The University Administration has ordered that no outside entity buses are to be on Entrance 1 or any other University of Houston street or entrance for the purpose of unloading or loading or parking.
Hours of Operation: 6:00 a.m. – 10:00 p.m., Monday - Friday (except on official University Holidays) Office Hours – 8:00 a.m. - 5:00 p.m.
