Campus Parking

UA Little Rock students and employees who wish to park a vehicle on campus must first register their vehicle with the UA Little Rock Police Department. To register your vehicle, you will need to know your T-number, make, model, basic color of your car, and your license plate number. You can get your parking permit in the first floor of the Donaghey Student Center.

Once a parking permit is obtained and placed on a registered vehicle, you may park in any of the “open parking” lots. This includes lots 12, 13W, 13E, 14, 15, 16, and the parking lot on the east side of University Plaza.

Parking is also available in the metered lots or the parking deck. The fee for parking in the meter lots is $1 per hour using coins or, if paying by credit card it is $3 minimum for two hours and additional hours may be added at $1 per hour at initial point of sale. The fee for the parking deck is $1 per exit. View the parking map for more information.
