Visitor Parking

We're so glad you're stopping by

Welcome to Maverick Country, where the people are great, the campus is lovely, and the parking spaces are plenty — as long as you know what your options are. If you’re planning on swinging in for a quick visit, it’s a good idea to acquaint yourself with our many visitor parking options. After all, we want your visit to go as smoothly as possible.

There are four parking options for visitors: street meters across campus, visitor parking garages including the Maverick Parking Garage and West Campus parking garage, parking spaces designated for visitors, or student parking lots with a permit.  The best place to park is the Maverick Parking Garage due to the close proximity in the heart of campus.


There are several areas on campus that provide short-term metered parking. Most machines accept credit cards and coins; however, there are several that accept coins only.  All meters accept payment by the MobileNOW app available for free in Google Play or iTunes. In order to provide equitable access, metered spaces are enforced from 7 a.m. to 11 p.m., Monday through Friday. Vehicles are not allowed to remain past the maximum time period indicated. Meters are free on weekends excluding event lots when cash parking is occurring.


The Maverick Parking Garage and the West Campus Parking Garage are located in the heart of campus and available for anyone wanting a great parking space on campus. The third and fourth floors of the Maverick garage and south side of the 1st floor in the West Campus garage are reserved for hourly guests. Parking in the garage is $3.75 per hour or a daily maximum of $11, which can be paid through the Mobile-NOW smartphone app or at one of two pay stations on the first floor of the garage next to the elevators. For more information on the garage please visit:

Visitor Spaces

There are numerous parking spaces throughout campus that allow a visitor to park for a designated period of time when conducting business with the University. Vehicles that have a valid non-visitor UTA permit are not allowed to park in these spaces.

Daily Parking Permits

Departments on campus can obtain a free parking permit for you prior to your arrival.  Otherwise, visitor parking can be prepaid in the Mavpark portal or by stopping by the Parking & Transportation Services office during regular business hours.
