The sheer size of campus and the number of people and cars that visit daily can make parking on or near campus a challenge. Give yourself ample time for parking.

There is no free visitor parking anywhere on campus. Options include parking garages, some surface lot spaces, and pre-paid discount event parking. Scroll down for details on each option.

Whether you are a prospective student visiting the Butler School, or attending a concert, you can use the information below to plan your visit. 

ADA & Handicapped Parking

Handicapped parking spaces are located in the San Jacinto Garage. There are also ADA spots along Trinity Street that are free after 5:45 pm on most days.  ADA spaces on campus require a government-issued permit at all times. 

Visit Parking and Transportation Services for more information on parking for visitors with disabilities. 


Garages are open 24/7
The university recommends that all campus visitors park in a campus garage.
