Parking Communication FAQs

What do parking fees cover?
UTMB Parking Operations is an auxiliary service that does not receive any direct funding from the state and is required to be financially self-sufficient by The University of Texas System. Parking fees are meant to cover all costs of managing parking on UTMB campuses. Such costs include staff salaries and benefits, utilities and other operating costs associated with parking facilities, capital improvements to parking facilities, maintenance costs and any debt service for loans used to build parking garages or surface lots.

UTMB’s Parking Operations is committed to continually strengthening the service level provided to our customers. Revenue generated by Parking Operations will be used to maintain the lots and garages and reinvest in improvements when needed.

Why are rates different for various locations?
Parking rates reflect relative demand for various garages. Those with the highest rates have the longest waiting lists. Charging lower rates on less-congested garages provides an incentive for employees to park in those locations, which may help shorten the overall waiting list for parking. All surface lots will still charge $42/month.

Where can visitors to my department on Galveston Campus park?
Non-contract public parking is available in Garage 2 (UHC Garage), Garage 8 ( Hospital Garage), and the Primary Care Pavilion surface lot at no cost to them with proper validation. .
