FY11 Faculty/Staff Online Parking Registration Now Open

Online parking registration for faculty and staff is now open and runs through June 30, 2010. Current reserved parkers will need to wait until May 15th to register for your FY11 permit; all others may do so now.

For FY11, we have some exciting changes to share with you. We have now integrated our faculty/staff online parking registration into our Parking E-Services website. The website currently handles all online citation payments, online citation appeals and student permit registrations. The system is able to accept credit card payments (Visa/MasterCard) and payroll deductions. Consequently, we are very excited to announce we have a unified website that can service the needs of the entire UH community in one place.

To register, go to and click on �Permit Registration� on the left side of the page. Employees will then enter their PeopleSoft Employee ID as their user name and their last name as their password if this is their first time using the website. If you have previously used the website to pay a citation or file an appeal, the system should have asked you to set a permanent password. You will need to use your permanent password to enter the website. If you do not remember the password, you may request to have your password reset by email ( or by phone (call 3-1097).

The registration process for this year is slightly different from last year.

This year all gated lot parkers have been approved to return to their current lot. This approval is based on the employee�s lot assignment as of May 1, 2010. For those wishing to change gated lots, it is suggested that they renew their current gated parking assignment and then put their name on the waitlist for their preferred lot.

Current reserved parkers will need to wait a few more days to register for parking. This is due to a new process being introduced this year that will assign employees that park in reserved spaces a �permanent� permit number. On May 15th, reserved parkers will see an option to renew their new reserved permit. Every year the employee will receive a new hangtag with the same permit number as long as they continue to renew. The hangtags will expire annually as they have in the past. Those that no longer want reserved parking will need to select one of the other parking options listed.

Employees with FY10 disabled permits who have State placards that have not expired have been pre-approved and can renew their disabled parking online. If your placard has expired, you will need to provide us with a copy of the new placard before you can order a new permit. Those needing temporary disabled parking authorization will need to visit the Center for Students with Disabilities.

Current Garage, Ungated or Economy lot parkers who wish to move into a gated lot will need to register for a non gated permit first and then register on the waitlist for their preferred lot. Waitlist assignments will be issued after online registration closes and will be based on employee pay grades.

With the purchase of the Energy Research Park (ERP, formerly Schlumberger) employees will need a parking permit starting on September 1, 2010. Parking areas available in ERP include Ungated, Disabled, Economy and Motorcycle. As an extension of the main campus, permits will work in the designated lots on both properties.

Teaching Fellows and Teaching Assistants may register for faculty/staff Ungated parking. They must be listed as such in the PeopleSoft HR system. All other graduate students will not receive the option to register for staff permits.

If you have any questions you can e-mail us at or call ext 3-1097 to speak to a parking representative.
