Due to the decreased number of students on campus during the summer and the new parking garage opening 700 new on campus parking spaces for Fall, shuttle service will stop running May 16, 2013 and will not be available after Spring 2013 finals week.
This will be a busy period for our campus and may be somewhat congested. Please be observant of all safety signs, paying particular attention to staying out of posted construction zones.
Parking on campus
- Parking permits are required to park at any Alamo Colleges campus/location

Get Ready for the New Garage
from la reVista President's Message, May 9, 2013
As most of you have heard by now, the new parking garage is slated to open this fall. We will have 700 new parking spaces and for that reason we will discontinue the shuttle service and parking at SeaWorld. The shuttle will stop running at the end of this semester.
The new parking garage, located in lot 6, is adjacent to Huisache Hall and the Boardwalk. It will be available to students, employees and community.
Work is currently underway to establish a fee structure for the garage to make it affordable for students and employees, while allowing the Alamo Colleges to pay off the debt for the structure. More information about this should be available following a proposal that will be presented to the Board of Trustees at the May board meeting.
The garage will be equipped with cameras for security and elevators for those who need assistance. Campus police will also monitor the garage as they do our surface parking.
The logistics of parking with a new garage will take some time to work out, but it will help to alleviate the shortage of parking. Once the parking fee structure is approved by the Board, we will be rolling out a series of communication to students and employees, to include video, Web, email, social media and signs to alert students.
I was reminded that we also need a name for our garage. I was wondering if we should have a wild flower name (as our surface lots have) or a tree name (as buildings have). If you have suggestions, send me a message with your idea
