Student Parking Permit Registration FAQs

By Bob Browand

Student parking permit registration for the 2020-2021 academic year is scheduled to open Wednesday, June 10, and continue through June 28. Here are some frequently asked questions about the registration process:

Why do I Need to Register Now?

We are living in difficult and ever-changing times right now. Parking and Transportation Services is preparing for the return of students to campus this fall and wants to do what we can to diminish any worries or concerns you may have about securing a parking space. Behind the scenes, the work of ordering, assigning and distributing parking permits is demanding. By holding registration in early summer, it allows us enough time to meet the challenge and fulfill your expectations.

Will I be Paying for the Permit Now?

No. The registration process is when you select your top permit preferences. The cost of your permit won't be charged to your student account until after permit assignments have been made in July and we are closer to the start of the fall semester.

The permit cost will be due with your Fall 2020 charges. However, if the situation on campus changes between now and the start of the fall semester as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, we will adjust and communicate accordingly.

Who is Permit Registration For?

Permit registration is for:
  • Students who do not have a parking permit this year, but want one for the 2020-2021 year;
  • Students who have a permit this year, but want a different one for the 2020-2021 year;
  • Students who have a permit this year, but did not renew it during priority renewal.

How Do I Get Started?

Once registration opens, you can log in to your myParking account through AccessUH and follow the instructions that are listed here:

What if I Renewed My Current Permit?

If you have a 2019-2020 parking permit and renewed it for 2020-2021 through our priority renewal process, then you do not have to do anything.

How Many Preferences Can I Select?

You may choose up to four different permit options and place them in order of preference, with your top choice being first on the list. We encourage you to make multiple selections in case your first choice is not available.

Can I Make Changes to My Preferences?

Yes. As long as registration remains open, you can log in and make changes to your permit preferences. Please note that doing so may change the order of your requests. Make sure they are in the right order if you make any additions/deletions.

What's Different Next Year?

This fall, the University Gateway Garage will open. It is being built adjacent to the East Garage. These two garages will be combined under one permit: the East Garage/University Gateway Garage permit. Students who get this permit will have access to park in either of the two garages. It will cost the same as the other garage permits.

* Please note: The Remote Campus parking permit option at UH Technology Bridge will not be available for the 2020-2021 academic year.

When Will I Get My Permit Assignment?

Permits will be assigned June 29-July 10. You will receive a confirmation email after July 10 notifying you which of your choices you have been awarded, along with the price of the permit. Permits will be mailed out starting the week of July 20 to students' myUH addresses.
