Evening/Weekend/Relaxed Parking

Vehicles displaying a valid University of Houston parking permit may park in any non-restricted space in any ungated lots Monday-Thursday from 3 p.m. to 7 a.m., and all day Friday, Saturday and Sunday and university holidays. Please note: Evening-Weekend permits cannot park Fridays until 3 p.m.

These relaxed parking rules do not apply to gated lots and garages, which are restricted at all times. A malfunctioning gate does not justify unauthorized entry into gated lots and garages.

Do not park in restricted areas such as fire and loading zones, disabled or reserved spaces, which are enforced 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Permits must be properly displayed.

If you park in a metered space, you must pay the visitor rate, even if you have a valid UH parking permit.

Relaxed Parking

There are certain times of the year when these relaxed parking rules are in effect seven days a week. These include:

  • Spring break
  • Winter break
  • Summer (last day of spring classes through day prior to first day of fall classes)

Please note: This does not apply to Evening-Weekend permits, which cannot be used on campus until 3 p.m. Monday-Friday, and all day weekends, even when the campus is under relaxed parking rules.
