Hours, Directions and Maps

The Womanís Collection is open Monday-Friday, 8a.m.-5p.m. Services by appointment only between semesters when classes are not in session.


TWU is located northwest of Dallas and northeast of Fort Worth. Our proximity to the Dallas/Fort Worth Area provide our students and faculty with abundant cultural, social and educational opportunities. Denton, a community of about 100,000 people, is home to TWU and the University of North Texas.

From Dallas:

Take Interstate I-35 to Denton. Take exit 464, which becomes Dallas Drive. Stay on Dallas Drive, which passes under a railroad bridge and curves to the right, where it becomes Bell Ave. Continue on Bell Avenue. After crossing McKinney Street, Bell Avenue will curve to the left (you must be in the left lane to make the turn). Ahead of you will be the TWU campus with its distinctive high-rise buildings. At the intersection of Bell Avenue and Administration Drive, turn left and stop at the visitor booth. You will be given information on parking and directions to the admissions office.

From Fort Worth:

Take Interstate 35W to Denton, exiting at University Drive (US 380). Turn right on University Drive. Follow University Drive to Bell Avenue, which runs through the TWU campus. Turn right on Bell Avenue. Turn right on Administration Drive and stop at the information booth for parking assistance and directions.

US Highway 380 is the major east-west thoroughfare in Denton. Known in the city as University Drive, it borders the northern edge of the TWU campus. TWU's high-rise buildings are visible for miles, so keep an eye out for them as you approach Denton.

Visitor Parking

Visitor parking is located in the front of the TWU Library (on the Campus Parking Map, Visitor Parking is designated green). Please stop at the information booth in front of the parking lot in order to get a visitor permit on the Denton Campus. Multi-day permits must be obtained at the Department of Public Safety (DPS) office. Students, faculty, and staff are not allowed to park in visitorís spaces between the hours of 7 a.m. and 9 p.m., Monday-Friday. UNT decals are valid in the library lot after 4 p.m. The Texas Womanís University has parking space available for student, faculty, staff, and visitors who bring motor vehicles to the campus. The university does not furnish unlimited parking spaces to accommodate all vehicles. Lack of parking does not justify violation of any parking regulations. Vehicles must be parked between two parallel white lines. Vehicles must be parked in appropriate zones as designated by the parking permit during zone enforcement hours (Campus Parking Map with Blagg-Huey Library highlighted).
