Where do we park to run into the Union for a few minutes?
We allow up to 30 minutes of FREE parking in the parking garage for those that have their parking garage ticket validated at the Union Information booth on the 3rd floor. With the exception of certain times during the first week of classes when the garage reaches capacity, there should be adequate space available to allow vehicles to use the FREE 30-minute parking.
Is UNT going to build a parking garage soon?
We are currently evaluating the possibility of building a 1000 - 1400 space parking garage to be located between Welch Street and Avenue A, South of Highland Street.
Commuter students may also use the reduced-rate "General" lot at the Bradley Street Apartments, as well as, the reduced-rate "General" contract lot at the Village Church of Denton and the “General” parking Lot 41 South of Maple Street. They may also purchase a "Premium" parking permit to use the Welch Street lots.
