Visitor Parking

Visitor parking is available across campus. This map shows the options. Here are the visitor parking rates

All visitor parking on campus is credit card only. Visa, MasterCard, Discover and American Express are accepted.

Please note: Parking permits are not a substitute for paying a meter.


Garage Visitor Areas

For those wishing to pay for all or part of their guests' parking, validation coupons are available in one-hour increments, up to a full day charge, for use in the Parking and Transportation Services parking garages that have visitor parking. Purchasing 20 or more all-day validation coupons qualify for a 33% reduction in the daily parking rate. A full-day validation is $18. When buying 20 or more, the rate is $12. Validation coupons must be purchased in advance.


Departments wishing to validate guest parking at meters may purchase one-time use digital codes for $20 per use. For purchases of 20 or more all-day validation codes, the price is $14 per code. Digital meter coupon codes must be purchased in advance.

Here's the form to request either validation coupons for visitor parking in garages, or digital meter coupon codes for metered parking.

Evening/Weekend/Event Parking

During periods of high parking volumes, Parking and Transportation Services will be converting surface lots in the high volume areas from valid UH permit only parking to evening/weekend/event parking on weekdays after 4 p.m. and all day on weekends.

Each of these areas will be staffed with easily identifiable parking attendants who will pre-collect the parking fee and issue event parking tickets to each vehicle not displaying a valid UH parking permit. The cost of event parking will be $10 and payment can be made with either cash or credit card.

There will be times, such as on athletic game days and University sponsored events, where these evening/weekend/event parking areas will not be staffed by PTS for guest/event parking. Visit the Special Event Parking Page for more details on these events. On these days, guests will need to utilize one of the other campus parking options.

In the event that no attendants are in place, evening/weekend/event parking will only be available in visitor garages and meter parking. Any vehicle parked on UH campus without the proper and valid UH parking permit or having paid for guest/event parking, will be subject to citation or tow.
