UHCL Parking Regulations are intended to create an orderly and safe campus parking environment. The goal is to achieve voluntary compliance of University parking regulations for the sake of personal safety and convenience for employees and visitors.
The University reserves the right to change these regulations, without notice, as necessitated by changes to the University environment or to State of Texas legislation. On special occasions - and during emergency situations – further parking limitations may be imposed that otherwise do not appear in the University’s official Parking Regulations.
