Parking at University Hospital

Free parking is available at all University Health System outpatient locations.

At University Hospital, paid parking is available in the West Parking Garage. For extended inpatient stays, families and visitors may buy a $10 parking pass that can be used for up to 10 exits from the parking areas.

Please note, construction is currently underway for our new Women’s and Children’s Hospital, so the West Garage is the only parking facility for patients and visitors. Many hospital staff members are also parking in the West Garage. Please do not hesitate to ask any staff member if you need wayfinding assistance.

Here are some helpful tips:

  • Please download our parking map to see the location of the West Garage as well as other changes due to the construction
    • Please plan to arrive early for your appointment as it may take you some time to find a spot and make your way to your location.
    • You can enter the West Garage from Medical Drive, Wurzbach and Merton Minter.
  • Remember to make a note of where you parked or take a photo of the signage to help you remember.
  • Please take your parking ticket with you and pay before you return to your vehicle. Pay stations are available at the shuttle stop, as well as the hospital entrances.
  • You can walk or ride to the hospital entrance:
    • A free shuttle is available to take patients and visitors directly from the garage on Level B1. Shuttles come by every 10-15 minutes.
    • The walkway is on Level 1. Please note this walk is about 3 football fields and the bridge has a slight incline.
