How Do I Request Reserved Parking?

  • To request spaces to be coned off for event VIPs, approval needs to be given by UT Tyler Parking Department. If approved, they will place cones out prior to 8:00 a.m. the day of your event. IT IS YOUR RESPONSIBILITY to ensure someone is in the parking lot to remove the cones.
  • Complete the appropriate event request form in Astra answering all questions pertaining to your parking needs.
  • For an event already scheduled in Astra, log into Astra and use the Parking request form.
  • Be sure to get your VIP their temporary parking pass through the Parking Permit Portal so they do not receive a ticket.

Alumni House Parking?

A maximum of 14 parking spaces can be reserved for Alumni House events occurring Monday – Thursday from 8:00 a.m. – 2:00 p.m.

Bus Parking?

Buses are encouraged to park off campus. If parking is needed, log into Astra and use the Parking request form and select “Parking - Bus” instead of a parking lot. If possible, UT Tyler Parking Department will assign a location or contact you with concerns.
