Parking & Transportation

Students have a variety of options for parking on campus. In addition, several METRO bus routes serve the campus. METRO Van Pool services also are available for students who would like to get to know other commuters on the way to school.

To park on campus, you’ll need to obtain a UH parking permit from Parking & Transportation Services. Students can register for parking through the Parking & Transportation Services website. If you have questions, please call: 713-743-1097. This permit allows parking in designated areas as space permits; it does not guarantee a parking space in any particular lot.
