(July 13, 2012) -- The days of identifying UTSA parking lots by an unhelpful number are over. Parking lots now will be known by the name of the adjacent roadway with an additional number identifier if there are multiple parking lots accessible from that roadway.
Lot 4 near the Main Building is now Bauerle Road lot 2. This parking lot will be accessible from both the north and south sides of campus via Bauerle Road. The first lot off off Bauerle Road, entering from UTSA Boulevard, previously was called lot 8. That parking lot is now Bauerle Road lot 1.
For north-south roadways, southernmost lots now are designated by the roadway name and numbered lot 1 with numbering increasing going north. For east-west roadways, easternmost lots are numbered lot 1 with numbering increasing going westbound.
Finding a specific parking lot when new signage is installed in the fall will be much simpler. Drivers should travel on the roadway with the same name until they come to the entrance of a parking lot with the marked sign they want. For example, if drivers are looking for Brackenridge lot 2 and enter the campus at Barshop off UTSA Boulevard, they will see signage directing them to exit the circle to the right. They would then travel down Brackenridge until they see an entry to a parking lot marked with signage identifying the lot as Brackenridge lot 2 (formerly part of lot 5).
Finding handicapped parking on campus also will soon be easier. When the Bauerle Road Garage opens in August, there will be 48 handicapped parking spaces near the Main Building. The garage is expected to include 29 handicapped spaces and seven new surface spaces near the northeast corner of the building. Use of the handicapped parking spaces in the parking garages requires the purchase of a garage parking permit or payment of hourly parking fees, together with a handicapped license or placard. Any UTSA parking permit and a handicapped license or hangtag authorizes parking in campus surface handicapped spaces.
