Road Access to Campus


Traffic flow changes are scheduled to begin over spring break.  Due to new campus construction and a tremendous increase in pedestrians and vehicles, a number of streets will be rerouted to one-way in order to provide the safest method of vehicular and pedestrian movement. 

With the one-way changes, new Zone 2 parking and hourly parking will be available. Click here to see the parking additions.


  • University Avenue between West Bowers Boulevard and 17th Street is now one-way with traffic moving north only


  • East Bowers Boulevard between Avenue H (also known as Bobby K. Marks) and Avenue I will be one-way with traffic moving west only
  • West Bowers Boulevard between Avenue I and Sam Houston Avenue will be one-way with traffic moving east only
  • Avenue I between East Bowers Boulevard and 22nd Street will be one-way with traffic moving south only
