Freshmen Parking Policy

  • As a freshman (0-29 completed credit hours), we ask that you leave your vehicle parked in a remote parking lot from 7:00 am to 7:00 pm, Monday – Friday. A Zone 1 gray colored parking permit will be issued to you that must be hung from your rearview mirror whenever you are parked in a remote lot between 7:00 am and 7:00 pm, M-F. Please note that this policy is strictly enforced. For more information about this policy and for shuttle service route locations and times (“UTPA shuttle bus routes”)
