South Texas College of Law Houston (the “law school”) is located in a high rise in downtown Houston at 1303 San Jacinto Street. The law school owns and occupies the full city block bordered by San Jacinto, Caroline, Polk, and Clay Streets. Students park on law school-owned lots at the southeast and southwest corners of Bell and San Jacinto Streets, and on public parking lots adjacent to the law school; while faculty and staff park on the lot bordered by Caroline, Austin, Polk, and Clay Streets. The law school assumes no liability or responsibility for any damage or loss incurred as a result of parking on any of the lots.
Security Concerns / Questions
The College operates two parking lots exclusively for student parking. Lot #1 is at the SW corner of San Jacinto and Bell Streets, with the entrance on San Jacinto. Lot #2 is located at the SE corner of San Jacinto and Bell Streets, with the entrance on Bell. You must use your South Texas College of Law Houston student ID card to gain access to these lots; however, access will not be activated until you have completed and submitted the Student Vehicle Information Form (see link below). There is no charge to park in the student lots.
In addition to the school owned parking lots, STCL Houston has negotiated student parking rates at several of the nearby parking garages. These rates are substantially below the regular market rates for downtown Houston. Below you will find a parking map of our downtown neighborhood, which you may use in deciding where to park for the upcoming year.

The faculty/staff parking lot (bordered by Caroline, Austin, Polk, and Clay Streets), and the student lots (southeast and southwest corners of Bell and San Jacinto Streets) are regularly patrolled by armed security officers.
An escort service to an individual’s car or bus stop is provided by security officers upon request to security at the front desk. The law school encourages you to utilize this service and recommends that you wait for the officer to meet you at the front desk before proceeding to your car or bus stop.
