Parking for Orientation Week

Parking will be available at the FREE Shuttle lot which is located at Seawall Boulevard and Holiday Drive (directly north of the Walgreens). Please note that this lot has motion censor entry arms - your car will need to pull up the arms to be let in and no badge is required. From there the shuttle buses will transport students to campus where they should exit the shuttle at the Levin Hall drop off. Students utilizing the Shuttle Lot should allow for extra time to reach campus. The buses will run in the afternoon to return students to their vehicles. 


Some curbside parking on campus is reserved for students who have purchased a student parking hang tag. Parking in the neighborhoods surrounding the UTMB Campus, as well as some spots located on city streets within campus, are restricted via the City of Galveston regulations. Regardless of where you park, please take notice of the signs whether posted by UTMB or the City of Galveston to avoid any frustration.
