UT Arlington is undergoing unprecedented growth, both in terms of enrollment and in terms of the physical makeup of the central campus. Enrollment reached approximently 30,000 students in 2010, a 20 percent increase over the past three years. Construction projects valued at more than $300 million are reshaping the campus, adding academic, event, parking, residential and retail space.

To serve our community, the University has gained more than 300 parking spaces as of this fall by adding new lots and maximizing the capacity of others. UT Arlington has streamlined the parking permit system and updated campus shuttle routes to help students, faculty and staff navigate our 420-acre campus.

Students, faculty and staff should be aware of several important changes that affect parking and campus transportation:

1. You must order your parking permit online at www.uta.edu/mymav. Decals will be mailed directly from the printing company, not UT Arlington Parking Services. Students must have a parking permit or display a receipt from their online permit purchase by the start of classes, Aug. 26, 2010. (Only reserve space permits and permit upgrades will be issued from the Parking Services Office in the J.D. Wetsel Service Center, 1225 W. Mitchell St.)

2. Remote decals are less than half the price. Student permits allowing access to all student lots are $112.50 for the fall and spring semesters. Students who choose to park in Lot 26 at Maverick Stadium may purchase a “R” remote lot permit for $45. The full rate for faculty and staff is $150; faculty and staff who work east of Davis Drive may purchase a “R” remote lot permit for $60. See parking permit prices.

3. UT Arlington has increased capacity of some existing lots and added new lots since spring.

  • Students may park in the new Lot 38, south of the UTA Bookstore at South Oak and West First streets.
  • Overflow parking is available at the new Lot 45, at St. Maria Goretti Catholic Church. Enter from West Mitchell Street, east of South Davis Drive.
  • Ample spaces are typically available even at peak times in Lots 49, 50 and 51, south of West Mitchell Street and east of South Cooper Street.

4. New shuttle routes will serve stops across campus every 15 minutes. The free service runs 7:30 a.m. to 6 p.m. beginning with the fall semester. Patrons should arrive on campus early enough to allow for wait times. Routes and schedules are available at www.uta.edu/shuttle.

5. Maverick Ride escort service is available from 7 p.m. to 1 a.m. Sunday through Thursday. UT Arlington police encourage students, faculty and staff to avoid walking alone after dark. To request a security escort, call 817-272-3381.
