Residence Hall Parking


Each residence hall complex on the Texas Tech University campus has a parking lot or lots nearby eligible for purchase on a first-come, first-served basis. Only students living in that complex may purchase an ePermit for their complex's lot. Each residence hall lot is reserved 24 hours a day, seven days a week for that lot's ePermit holders.

See Permit Costs.

What if my lot is sold out?

  1. Purchase an ePermit in the closest commuter parking lot to your residence hall. If you need help selecting the closest commuter lot or the closest commuter lot is sold out, please contact us
  2. Add your residence hall lot to your wait list. Adding to a wait list comes at no cost. 
  3. When your name reaches the top of the wait list, you receive an email notifying you of your status and asking if you'd like to move into your wait-listed lot. The email contains instructions for accepting or rejecting the offer. 

How do I get from my residence hall to my classes?

Students can walk, bike, or ride a bus to reach their destination on campus. Only employee, service, and other authorized vehicles may drive past entry stations and into the heart of campus weekdays from 7:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m.

How do I avoid parking citations?

The most frequent residence hall ePermit citations the Enforcement Division sees are parking in other residence hall lots, parking in service vehicle or R19 zones and spaces, and parking over posted time limits. See more information about why citations are issued on our Enforcement page.
