Parking has been a problem in the past couple of years, but UTEP recently built two parking garages that have calmed the rage of students angered by the scarce number of spots.
Plenty of parking is now available to students. Parking areas are dispersed around campus to accommodate students, depending on which section of campus students have their classes. Campus police keep a close eye on students who fail to provide a permit for a parking section. A $30 fee is charged to students who park in a parking lot with the wrong permit. Permits are sold according to the different zones of parking requested by students.
