Temporary Parking on Campus

Alumni who plan to visit campus for Career and Professional Development appointments or events are required to attain a temporary parking permit and may park in certain areas on campus. The visitor lot is located off Theatre Pass Drive just north of the John Brooks Williams North Science Center, and all vehicles parked in the visitor lot are required to have a visitor-parking permit displayed on the dashboard. 

Visitors planning a trip to campus can obtain a visitor permit via the following methods:

  1. If visiting a specific department or office, please ask that department/office to obtain a visitor permit for you.
  2. If visiting for an event, please contact the event coordinator for information about visitor parking.
  3. If none of the above apply, please e-mail the Hilltopper Card Office at onecard [at] stedwards.edu to request a visitor permit.  In your email please include:  
  • Full Name
  • Vehicle license plate number
  • Dates of your visit
  • Requested method of delivery (e-mail to print at home or pick-up in person at the Hilltopper Card Office at Main Building, room G3). 

If the Visitor Parking area off Theater Pass Drive, just north of the John Brooks Williams Natural Sciences Center-North is full, visitors with a visitor parking permit can park in any of the "All Permit" lots on campus.

If visiting on a weekday, between 7 p.m. and 7 a.m. Contact University Police Department at 512-448-8444  and provide your vehicle make, model and license plate number.  If you do this, you will not require a permit to park on campus.

Parents' Guide

We know you are concerned about your student’s future. Most likely, you are somewhere between worried about the return on investment and resigned that your student is an adult and has to make his or her own decisions.

Our Parents' Guide (PDF) provides useful information in supporting and assisting your student to make career decisions and plan for the future.
