About Carpool Parking

Who is eligible for carpool parking?

UTEP's designated "carpool parking" spaces may be used by a "carpool", which is defined as two or more people.  In order to participate in a carpool, permit holders must be enrolled as students or be University employees.

How to get a carpool permit

  1. Each member of a carpool must be listed and registered on a Carpool Application form (Click here to download Carpool Application form).
  2. Please return the completed Carpool Application form to the Parking and Transportation Services department in the Academic Services Building Room 122 between the hours of 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Only one form is necessary for each group and all participants must be present with valid picture ID at the time of submittal.
  3. Students may add the cost of their carpool permit to their University account and make full payment through Student Business Services office. Faculty/Staff may purchase their carpool permits through payroll deduction, when the primary permit holder is eligible for payroll deduction.
  4.  One carpool permit will be issued to the primary permit holder and the other members will be registered under the carpool permit as secondary permit holders.
