Campus Parking on Game Day

Football returns to the University of Houston campus this fall with the opening of the new TDECU Stadium, which means tens of thousands of visitors will descend on the area to root on the Cougars.

Here on this web page you will find important information regarding the impact this year's home football games will have on the parking lots, parking garages and streets on campus. Please read it carefully and use it to help you adjust and make game days run as smoothly as possible. We encourage everyone to start planning now so you can lessen the impact it will have on you.

Students who have a Welcome Center Student Garage permit and arrive when the garage is being used as a cash lot will be allowed to enter without having to pay the fee.

SURFACE PARKING LOTS

Surface lots 12A, 12B, 9B, 9C and half of 15C will be closed off at midnight the night before all games in preparation for their usage as donor game day parking areas. All vehicles must be removed from these lots by that time. Any vehicles remaining in the lots will be towed. Vehicles can be moved to lots 8A, 4A, 16D or 16G.

Lots 20A, 20C, 21B, 17A, 17B, 17C, 17D and the Leek Street lots will be converted into cash lots four hours before game time for game days. Vehicles still in these lots after that time will not be towed.

ALLEY THEATRE

The Alley Theatre will be performing its entire 2014-2015 season on the UH campus at the Wortham Theatre while its downtown location undergoes renovations. These lots will be staffed by parking attendants and will not be available for people attending football games.

CULLEN BOULEVARD CLOSURE

On Saturday, Nov. 22, Cullen Boulevard's northbound and southbound lanes will be closed to all vehicular traffic from Holman Street to Cougar Place at 6 a.m. and will re-open an hour after the game ends.
