Departmental Business Use ePermits

Personal Vehicles for Departmental Business


Departments may grant a Departmental Business ePermit to an employee using their personal vehicle for official university business.  Department staff should consider alternatives to driving on campus for attendance to meetings and for completing small errands.  A Departmental Business Use ePermit should be used in circumstances where large deliveries or unloading are necessary or when the distance or circumstances surrounding travel warrant the use of the ePermit.

Service Vehicle Permits


Sam Houston branded service vehicles are allowed to park in any surface lot pay by hour space, authorized university vehicle space, yellow zones and in extreme cases, red zones.  All service vehicles should park in a manner that does not prohibit the flow of vehicular or pedestrian traffic.  Service vehicles will be cited for blocking or occupying any ADA space, unless the closure of the space was approved for a particular construction project or scope of work for the university.

Parking for Large Events


If your department is planning an event with at least 30 guests, we recommend you notify us to ensure that we can provide adequate arrangements.

Prepaid Parking Options


Departments can purchase an available amount of prepaid parking in a location of choice or purchase ePermits as needed.  Please contact our office if you are interested in either option.
