Important! Parking Message from UTA Security

We are pleased to inform you that your event has been entered into our system. The link below will allow your visitors to register their vehicles prior to coming to the event or once they arrive. Visitors should use this link to obtain an event permit for the event. UT Arlington utilizes license plate recognition (LPR) technology to scan vehicles parked on campus. Any vehicle parked on campus without an e-permit will receive a citation. Additional parking instructions and a map can be found inside the vehicle registration link below. This link can be forwarded to your guest(s), so they may register their vehicle(s).
