The University of Texas at El Paso has entered a partnership with ParkMobile, a provider of smart parking and mobility solutions in the U.S., to offer contactless parking reservations for events at UTEP, starting Dec. 13, 2021.
Students, faculty, and visitors will be able to reserve parking on campus via ParkMobile for entertainment activities at Sun Bowl Stadium, the Don Haskins Center, Magoffin Auditorium, and other campus venues. The ParkMobile app is available through iPhone and Android.
To make a parking reservation, users search for the event venue in the ParkMobile app or website and select where to park. After users book a reservation, they can use their mobile pass or printed permit to redeem the reservation. Please note that UTEP athletic events are not part of the app yet.
“ParkMobile has seen much success with reservations at other universities around the state, so we look forward to welcoming the app to our campus,” said UTEP Vice President for Business Affairs, Mark McGurk. “We hope that the reservation feature will make attending UTEP events a more seamless experience.”
Several El Paso venues and universities throughout Texas use ParkMobile, which has more than 1.9 million users throughout the state, and over 29 million users nationwide.
“We’re excited to welcome UTEP to our platform, which services 140-plus colleges and universities nationwide,” said Jeff Perkins, CEO for ParkMobile. “With multiple venues and 35 ParkMobile dedicated parking locations around campus, UTEP is utilizing our reservations feature all throughout the school.”
