Parking changes coming soon

UTMB’s executive leadership team recently approved changes to the university’s parking management plan for its three campuses. As part of this approved plan, a new web-based validation system will be implemented for public parking areas on the Galveston and League City campuses. In addition, some employee, student and patient/visitor parking rates on the Galveston Campus will increase for Fiscal Year 2017. It will be the first rate increase since before 2008.
