1) Parking Areas: All areas are signed before entering the area and signs are on light posts designating what permits are allowed in that area.

2) Colors of Parking Lines: Blue = Handicap Parking

                                               Orange = Gold Permit Only

                                               Yellow = Faculty/Staff Parking

                                               White = Student Parking

                                               (NOTE: Faculty and staff may park in both yellow and white-lined spaces).

3) Handicap Parking: Persons with a valid handicap placard as well as a UT permit may park in any area designated as handicap parking. If the handicap parking is filled in the lot closest to their destination then they may park in the closest unreserved parking space. (Example – A student with a "D" Permit and a valid handicap placard/plate may park in Area 1 South which is a Faculty/Staff – "A" Permit – Area).
