Know Before You Go



All orientation attendees must register their vehicle with UTA Parking Services. Students will receive an email three days before their orientation session with a link to register their vehicle. Once registered, orientation attendees can park in any student lot on campus. We recommend parking in the College Park District garages, as they provide the closest student parking to the University Center, where orientation will take place.

Use the following address for GPS coordinates:

500 South Center St
Arlington, TX 76010

Inside the garages, park in any area marked with dark blue signs that say “Faculty, Staff, and Student.”

Please be advised that guests parked in the First Baptist Church area (marked with orange signs) or the resident parking area (marked with light blue signs) will be ticketed.

New Maverick Orientation will be held in the E.H. Hereford University Center on the east side of the UTA campus, an easy walk from the College Park garages.

  • Stairwells in the garage can be found in the west corners; an elevator is available in the southwest corner of the garage. 
  • Exit the garage by the police substation. Once you exit the garage, you will pass Texadelphia and Pie-Five.
  • Continue along First Street, and follow the signage to the University Center.

Signs will direct you to the check-in location for your orientation when you enter the building. Below are two maps to help you find your way.
