On Campus Parking

On campus parking is limited and requires a valid Texas State parking permit on Monday through Friday. Texas State Parking Services offers a purple commuter permit for community members who need to park on campus after regular school or business hours. The fee is $115 for the calendar year (August 2021 – August 2022). Although this seems like a lot, it averages out about half the cost of per-visit parking using the $5 pay and display kiosk in the Pleasant Street Garage. 

To purchase a parking permit, parents must visit the Texas State Parking Services in the Mathews Street Garage, (202 Student Center Drive), during their business hours and purchase directly from them. You will need to have your license plate number, driver license number and $115 payment with you and be sure to request a purple parking pass.
