Residence Hall Parking
All residents that will have a vehicle which will be parked in the University Parking lots assigned to Student Housing, must have a parking permit specific to their housing assignment (Miner Village, Miner Canyon, Miner Heights) prior to check-in. Only those with a valid Miner Village, Miner Heights, Miner Canyon parking decal will have access to the drive-in gates. This University parking permit may be purchased by logging into “my parking account” at www.parking.utep.edu.
For Safety and Security reasons, only residents of the specific complex have access to the parking lot. To enter, they must present their Student ID at the gate. Housing and Residence Life staff is not permitted to open the gate simply by pressing the call button, so please have your Miner Gold Card with you at all times.
