Visitor/Guest Parking


There are several locations throughout campus designated for visitor/guest parking. These include the LBJ Student Center Garage, the Edward Gary Street Garage, and spaces near the Admissions Office. There is a fee to park in the garages, and a visitor permit must be obtained from the Admissions Office to utilize those spaces.

Vehicles not parked in the LBJ Student Center Garage or Edward Gary Street Garage must display a Visitor/Guest Permit obtained from their department host.      


Official Guests

Official guests of Texas State can request a Guest permit through their campus host. The permit allows parking in any legal non-reserved space on campus. Other special parking arrangements can be made by the host through the Parking Services office when required. Any Texas State faculty, staff, student, or university organization who plans to invite a guest (or guests) to campus in a business or official capacity must contact Parking Services to make arrangements in advance of the visit.
Contact Parking Services at 512-245-2887 for more information or fill out the online University Guest Parking Permit Request Form.


Parents of Texas State students are always welcome on campus. Parents should stop by the Parking Services office, a traffic control booth, or the University Police Dispatch office (after Parking Services office hours) to request a Parent/Visitor permit. The permit allows parking in any legal non-reserved space on campus. Reserved spaces are clearly marked and include service spaces.
