Q: Where are the best places to park?
A: Parking Lots closest to the University Library are Lots E10 and E28. Please note that construction currently has Van Week Street closed from Sugar Road to Lot E10. To access the parking lots, the best way to do so is via Schunior Street. From Schunior take Roberts Street south and then take a right on Van Week Street. Lot E28 will be the first parking lot on your right. Lot E10 is the only lot on your left, just before the construction closes the street. You can find a campus map by Googling “UTRGV Edinburg Campus Map.”
