Parking is enforced on campus twenty-four hours a day, seven days a week. All vehicles on campus are required to have a permit and park in accordance with the St. Edward’s University Traffic and Parking Regulations. The university has transitioned to a new parking system that eliminates the need to have or print a physical permit to place on your windshield or dash, but permit permissions and lot designations remain the same only now your license plate is your permit. The university now uses License Plate Recognition (LPR) technology for enforcement and to issue ePermits. Please contact the Parking Services office at parking [at] stedwards.edu or (512) 448-8553 for all questions or concerns regarding campus parking.
Students, Faculty and Staff are able to purchase academic year, semester, daily ePermits by logging on to myHilltop. Students, Faculty and Staff may now have multiple vehicles registered on their permit, but only one vehicle is allowed to be parked on campus at a time. Students are allowed to register two vehicles per permit and Faculty/Staff are allowed to register three vehicles per permit. Permit holders may add or delete vehicles as needed at any time by accessing thier account via myHilltop. Please make sure to enter the correct license plate information for your vehicle. Inccorect license plate information could result in the vehicle being ticketed or towed at the owener's expense.

Individuals receiving a free guest ePermit will be directed where to park by the university department sponsoring their visit. Individuals purchasing a visitor ePermit online can only park in the garage and the two adjacent surface lots (Yellow - All Permits) Monday through Friday from 7 am to 7 pm. Visitor ePermit holders are also authorized to park in any of the Commuter/Staff lots Monday through Friday from 7 pm to 7 am and all day on the weekends.
