TTU: Parking Now Costs Visitors Too

Paying for parking at Texas Tech has traditionally been the responsibility of students, faculty and staff, but a new plan has shifted that responsibility to everyone, including visitors.

Starting May 1st visitors will have to pay to park by using new parking meters. The new pay and park lots will be monitored by the traffic and parking patrol, but it's up to the driver to pay the machine.

"In the past visitors have never had to pay to park on the Texas Tech campus, that's not really fair since the students are bearing the brunt of all the parking expense we need to spread it out better," said Traffic and Parking Director, Buddy Knox.

The new plan only affects a few lots on campus, including: the lots along the south side, near the Library, the English-Philosphy building and the lots near the Bookstore.

Student parking will not be affected by the change.
