UH System Reciprocal Parking

The University of Houston has a reciprocity agreement with the other UH System campuses to honor their parking permits on a temporary basis for business needs. Vehicles must display a current UH System Campus permit and are permitted to park in the following areas: 

  • Monday-Thursday, 7 a.m.-3 p.m.: Zone E ungated parking lots. 
  • Monday-Thursday, 3 p.m.-7 a.m., and all day Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays: Any ungated zone lot.

The reciprocity agreement is intended for business visitations only and not for multiple consecutive uses. For special considerations, please contact Parking and Transportation in advance at to discuss. A transfer of employment or classes would necessitate the purchase of a UH parking permit.

Parking at Component Universities

Because of the reciprocity agreement, UH parking permits can be used by students, faculty and staff when visiting UH-Clear Lake, UH-Victoria and UH-Downtown on a temporary basis for business needs. In order to do so, you must first print out a temporary copy of your virtual permit and placing it on the dashboard of your vehicle.

To print out the permit, follow these directions:

  • Log in to AccessUH using your CougarNet credentials
  • Click the myParking Account icon
  • Click "View Your Permits"
  • Click on the permit number
  • Click "Print Permit"
