Keeping it Clean and Safe
With the return of students, faculty, and staff to campus this fall, Commuter Services is welcoming the UH community back safely with enhanced cleaning procedures due to COVID-19. High touchpoint areas including parking structure elevators, stair rails, and pay-to-park machines will be sanitized more frequently. In addition, the Rainbow Shuttle and the parking office will also be cleaned repeatedly throughout the day.
