East Campus Parking Garage

The Graduate Student Housing Project will begin fencing off parking lots that will be utilized for the construction of the new facility starting on Monday, August 7, 2017. The following lots will be permanently closed: 109, 113, 114, and 115.

All cars must be removed from lots 109, 113, 114, and 115 by 11:59 pm on Sunday, August 6, 2017. Failure to remove your vehicle by this time may result in it being cited and/ or towed at the owner’s expense.

The orange hashed areas on the map below will no longer be available for parking starting on Monday, August 7, 2017.

The following lots will remain for parking in East Campus: 35, 106, 110, 111, 112, 117, 119, and 121. Some of these lots require an “A” or “F” permit and not a “C” permit.

We anticipate Phase I of the East Campus Garage to open at the week of August 21, 2017 prior to the start of the upcoming school year. This will add 1,200 parking spaces to the East Campus parking inventory. We will have ECG permits available online shortly.

Pricing for the East Campus Garage permits will be as follows:

Permit Term Price
F Annual (12 Months) $280
R Annual (Sep-May) $280
R Semester $165
R Summer $60
S Annual (12 Months) $280

We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause and thank you for supporting UT Austin in all endeavors.

Speedway Mall Project

The Speedway Mall project wrapped up the first and second phases and began the next phase in mid-December 2016. The current phase moves the project northward on Speedway and affects the intersection of 24th Street and Speedway. Vehicle access and parking are affected as follows:

  • 24th Street is closed between the F16 lot entrance near W.R. Woolrich Labs (WRW) and Speedway. There is no through-traffic on 24th between San Jacinto Street and Inner Campus Drive/Guadalupe Street. San Jacinto traffic turning west on 24th cannot continue past the F16 lot entrance.
  • The gate arms on 24th Street are closed at all times. Only emergency vehicles and carts have access between Inner Campus Drive and Speedway.
  • The gate arm at Speedway and Dean Keeton Street is open to provide access to ADA spaces. The intersection of 24th and Speedway is blocked, so vehicles entering Speedway from Dean Keeton must turn around to exit to Dean Keeton.
  • Parking and Transportation Services (PTS) converted some parking spaces on Speedway north of 24th into loading zones (LZ) to allow deliveries to buildings south of 24th on Speedway.

If the dates, times, or project scope of this phase change, PTS will notify campus.

NOTE: Information about Speedway Mall and other capital projects on campus is available throughout the year on the capital projects Construction Advisory web site. Visit the Construction Advisory maps page, and scroll down to the Speedway Mall project to see maps of pedestrian and vehicle routes as well as plans for future construction in the area. This website will be updated at key intervals throughout the project.

Texas Gas Service Project 

Texas Gas Service will be connecting a new gas line along 24thStreet between the Service Building (SER) and the Power Plant Complex (PPA, CT1, and PPL) starting on Monday, October 16,2017. This project is expected to last four to five weeks. 

This work will require utilization of eight F16 parking spaces on the south curb of 24th Street near the Waller Creek Bridge. (See map below.) Signage is placed to indicate the work area utilized by Texas Gas Service. 

Any F16 permit holder that is unable to find a parking space, may park in F26 on a space available basis through November 17, 2017.
