All permits ordered online will be mailed to the mailing address chosen during the registration process. Permits ordered before a semester begins, will be mailed approximately two weeks before the first day of class. Permits ordered after the first day of classes will be mailed within two business days. A temporary printable permit is assigned by the system and can be used for up to seven days while you wait for the permanent permit. The link for this temporary permit is provided in the confirmation email you received once you complete your purchase. This chart helps illustrate the mailing process/timeline.
No. We ask that you come to the parking office in University Lofts or the Stadium Garage (next to Taco Cabana) to receive a replacement in order to minimize the risk of losing another permit in the mail.
No problem! Lost or stolen permits may be replaced at the cost of $50 in our office. If your permit was stolen and you have a police report filed, you may bring a copy of that report and we will issue a replacement free of charge. Only one permit per academic year will be replaced at $50. Any additional replacements will be at full price.
Individuals will have the opportunity to exchange their permits, only BEFORE the desired permit sells out. For example, if you currently have a zone permit and would like to exchange it for a Remote Campus permit, you will only be able to if Remote Campus permits are still available for sale.
If the permit you desire is sold out, you will have the option to sign up on a waiting list, as a limited number of permits MAY become available at the start of the SPRING and SUMMER semesters. If you receive an email offering you a permit while on the waitlist, you'll have one week to claim it before it's offered to the next person on the list.
Yes. License plate information is used by PTS and UH Police to better serve you. PTS uses it to contact you if you are issued a citation as requested by SGA legislation. UH Police uses the information to contact you in case your vehicle needs to be moved or is in an accident. Having your vehicle’s license plate registered with the parking office will not prevent you from receiving a citation if your permit is not properly displayed or if you are parked incorrectly. You can register your vehicle through your myParking Account.
During the registration process, you can choose to place the charges on your student account (Fee Bill) or pay with a credit card (Visa/MasterCard/Discover Card). If you choose to add the fee to your student account, you can pay the charges using MyUH (PeopleSoft) or in person at the Cashier's counter at the Welcome Center. Please note that it will take a few days for the permit fee to be posted your Fee Bill. For payment options, please visit the Student Financial Services website.
You may choose to purchase a zone, garage or remote campus permit and park in that designated area.
During the registration process, you can choose to pay with a credit card (Visa/MasterCard/Discover Card) or have the cost of your permit deducted from your monthly or bi-weekly payroll. Please note that in order to be eligible for payroll deductions you must be a regular full or part-time employee that is paid by the university.
All regularly employed and benefits-eligible full and part-time staff members are able to purchase a parking permit. Campus partners may also obtain staff parking permits by coming into the parking office and requesting one.
You may transfer your permit between vehicles as long as it is displayed properly and only one of those vehicles is on campus at a time. All of the vehicles you use need to be registered to the permit.
If you have an ungated permit, you are permitted to park in any of the ungated faculty/staff lots, which are labeled with green circles on the campus parking map.
However, if you have a gated permit and wish to change lots, go to Parking Self Service in AccessUH and sign up for the waitlist of the lot you’re interested in.
Please call L'Oreal O'Reilly-Smith at 832-842-5753.
No. If you have a permit and have terminated your employment you must return your parking permit to the parking office in order to clear that item off your termination checklist.
