WHARTON, TEXAS – Town hall meetings have been scheduled to garner input regarding a parking fee at the University of Houston Sugar Land campus.

Both UH and WCJC administrators will be in attendance to hear concerns and address questions.
Meetings will be held at the WCJC Sugar Land Campus Brazos Hall, Room 180, at:

WCJC administration is continuing to investigate all possible options for assisting the college’s students and employees regarding this matter and will release more information as it becomes available.
