Parking Citations

Violators of the University's parking rules and regulations can receive citations.

Other UH System Permits

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 at UH at Sugar Land. 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.
