TTU Parking

Park and Pay System

A number of parking lots on the Texas Tech campus use park-and-pay spaces for those without ePermits or ePermits specific to the lot. Some lots are park-and-pay Monday through Friday from 7 a.m. to 8 p.m. Others function as faculty/staff lots during the work day and become park-and-pay Monday through Friday from 5:30 to 8 p.m. Signs will indicate the usage.


Hour:   $1.50       Day: $9.00

How to Use Park-and-Pay

If you have a valid Texas Tech University ePermit for a faculty/staff, residence hall, or commuter lot or garage, you do not have to pay to park in Rec Center parking or in any park-and-pay area after 5:30 p.m. You will need to pay to park in any other park-and-pay areas from 8 a.m. to 5:30 p.m.

If you do NOT have a valid Texas Tech University ePermit, you must pay the hourly or daily rate to park in a park-and-pay area.
Parking and paying can be accomplished in one of two ways:
