UTA Parking

Parking in the UTAs is very limited. In order to be entered into the Lottery System in the Fall for a parking sticker you must complete the Room Condition Form and the Emergency Card and have both turned into your RA by the set deadline. Once this is done you will be entered into the Lottery and if your name is drawn you will then need to purchase a parking pass from parking services. You must have a valid USD Parking Pass with the UTA Parking Sticker to avoid violating the parking regulations. Please wait to purchase a parking pass to see if you have won a sticker unless you are planning on parking on main campus. For more information please visit:
