For habitual offenders or at the discretion of Parking and Transportation, an immobilization device may be used in lieu of towing.

If a boot immobilization device has been placed on your vehicle's front driver's side tire:

    1. Call the number on the boot and pay the citation owed to UH (832-900-9121 / 24 hours a day)
    2. Once paid, you will be given a six-digit code to release the boot.
    3. If the boot is not removed within 24 hours, the vehicle will be towed.
    4. You have 24 hours to return the boot. If not returned within 24 hours, the $200 deposit is forfeited, plus there is a $100 charge for every day after that until it is returned (up to $850).
    5. You may return the boot Monday-Friday 8 a.m.-4 p.m. at the Parking and Transportation Customer Service Office, 4224 Elgin St., or place it in the drop-off near the visitor entrance to the Elgin Street Garage.
    6. You can call customer service office at 832-842-1097 and pay via phone Monday-Friday 8 a.m.-5 p.m. and return the device to the location above.
    7. Boots at UH at Sugar Land can be returned to the drop box located at the back of the George Building.
  1. DO NOT ATTEMPT to move the vehicle, as doing so will cause damage.
  2. If you fail to return the device, there is a $850 replacement fee.
