UT Arlington parking lots

Some parking lots to close during Spring Break, March 14-20

UT Arlington Facilities Management leaders are in the process of adding additional parking lot capacity to better serve the University community. The effort includes the expansion of some lots, new lot construction, and repainting of others to maximize efficiency.

Please note that the following lots will be closed March 14-20 for upgrades. Cars left unattended may be towed.

  • Lot 39, at First and Pecan streets, south of the UTA Bookstore
  • Lot F-13, east of the Business Building, between West Third and West Fourth streets
  • Lot 45, southeast of Lipscomb Hall, north of West Mitchell Street
  • Lot 49, south of West Mitchell, east of South Cooper Street

Parking lots are noted on the general campus map available online at

Major construction of the Special Events Center and other projects on the east side of campus will not begin in earnest until the spring semester ends to minimize the impact on the campus community. More information about those projects is available at

Upcoming lot changes

  • Lot 49, at Cooper and Mitchell, is being restriped to add 235 spaces. Work is scheduled to be complete by Monday, March 22, 2010.
  • Lot 50, north of Grand Street and West of South West Street, has been expanded to add 74 spaces.
  • Lot 51, east of Lot 50 and south of Bessel Avenue, will be expanded to add 83 spaces.
  • A new Lot 56 is under construction at 1217 S. Pecan St., at Doug Russell and Pecan streets. It will add 116 spaces by mid-April 2010.
  • The LCN lot north of Lipscomb Hall will close Friday, March 22, 2010. The lot has 127 spaces. Students who have parked in the LCN lot will be redirected to the LCS lot (Lipscomb Hall South), which has available space.

These changes will result in a net gain of approximately 380 student spaces this spring.

More information about parking changes will be announced as projects come on line.

Shuttle Service

Free shuttle service is available on campus 7:30 a.m. to 6:15 p.m. Monday through Friday with shuttles running about every 15 minutes. Ample parking is available in the Maverick Stadium remote lot, 1301 W. Mitchell St., and in the lots off South Cooper Street. Covered shuttle stops are available in those lots and at various points across campus. Visit the UT Arlington Police Department website for more information about routes, times, and stops.
